The VGCSA and VTC are proud to announce the merger of two popular research fundraiser tournaments into one mega event, the Virginia Tech Turfgrass Research Classic, set for Monday, May 22nd, hosted by The Country Club of Virginia. Both the famed James River Course and the popular Tuckahoe Creek Course will be used for this benefit tournament, aimed at providing support for Turfgrass research.

As part of this move, Virginia Tech researchers have established turfgrass plots near the Tuckahoe Creek Course Farmhouse, and guests are invited to attend a free 90-minute field day that morning. The Tech team wanted to establish research in central Virginia, as the climate and growing conditions are more “mainstream Virginia,” than that found in Blacksburg.  Richmond also provides a more convenient location statewide.

The new golf tournament promises to be a “can’t miss” affair!  Plans are in place to make it totally first class from the golf, to the food & beverage, to the prizes and more.  In addition, the event will feature a new auction component to add excitement to the day. It will soon become the ultimate networking event in the industry. The tournament committee is announcing the event and opening sponsorship and golf team sales now.

For sponsorship opportunities, please email David McCall, dsmccall@vt.edu
