A big THANK YOU to all participants and donors of the 2018 Tee-Up New England online auction for rounds of golf! More than $24,000 was raised for Turfgrass Research in New England. Our 2019 auction will be held, April 15th-22nd.
Tee-Up New England 2018 auction will be held April 9-16th! We are getting very close to our auction dates and the clubs that are donating are building in numbers. Take a look through the lists by state, there are some new clubs that we have added and also notice that we have some really great clubs in New Jersey and New York! Some of this year’s courses are the result of Tee-Up New England joining with the Alumni Turf Group of UMass to pool donated rounds together and share in the proceeds. The ATG works closely with UMass to help the school fill its needs with industry input. These new courses will open up a whole new section of courses in the Northeast. The bidding will begin April 9 at 6pm!

2016 & 2015 Results
Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2015 auction. We had 100 rounds in New England with courses participating all over New England which resulted in a record number of funds generated. All funds will be applied to ongoing turfgrass research in New England in 2015. You can see a list of research projects at www.nertf.org. Turfgrass research work could benefit all courses in New England and supports the industry in great ways. Our 2016 auction will be our 5th and the dates are: April 11th-18th, 2016! We hope to have even more clubs participate in 2016 and to attract a record number of round seeking golfers. Tee-Up New England creates a circle of involvement in the golf industry to help insure the future of this great game! Thank you for your interest and may your golf feel like the wind is always at your back!
Tee-Up New England!: a Turfgrass Research Fundraising Initiative organized by the New England Regional Turfgrass Foundation to bring together the support of the average golfer and the efforts of the researchers to better the game of golf by improving the playing conditions through turfgrass research.
This initiative invites the golf facilities to donate a round of golf for 4, to be then advertised throughout the golf community and to finally be auctioned online to the public on dates to be determined (April 13-20th, 2015). All proceeds will go to the New England Regional Turfgrass Research Trust (NERTRT), a 501(c)(3) organization, then be applied to turfgrass research projects in New England at state universities. These efforts will encourage individuals to play the game, expand the ability to improve conditions, promote those clubs that participate and involve golfers who enjoy these benefits the most in turfgrass research funding.
