Toro and Rounds 4 Research get exclusive

By |  March 1, 2013

The Toro Company presented the Environmental Institute for Golf with a check for $50,000 at the GIS, creating an exclusive partnership with the program. Rounds 4 Research is an industry initiative specifically aimed at increasing funding for turfgrass research.

“Research is the lifeblood of both environmental and economic advancements in turf management,” says Darren Redetzke, vice president for Toro’s Commercial Business. “Toro’s commitment to Rounds 4 Research will complement our past and current support for the EIFG and GCSAA, and aligns with our philosophy that investing in research ultimately improves the customer experience. This is a vital program for all sectors of the golf industry.”

Rounds 4 Research allows GCSAA chapters to participate as fundraising partners on a national level. Golf facilities can support the effort by donating rounds of golf that will be auctioned online to generate funds.

As the exclusive partner for Rounds 4 Research, Toro’s commitment will allow the EIFG to bolster its research efforts. Since 1988, Toro has invested well over $1 million to support scientific research, advancement in education, and scholarships for future turfgrass professionals.
