.....2020 Tee-Up New England  Online Auction was Cancelled due to Covid-19, but we are excited to be back in 2021!  This will be our 9th Online Auction.  We are in the process of collecting donations and setting up advertisements for the auction. Our initiative still focuses on turfgrass research in New England.  We hope you will enjoy going through the list of golf courses, consider playing a day of Tennis on the fabulous turf at the Longwood Cricket Club and pick-up the New England Golf Course Owners Passport to New England Golf that will give you great deals to more than 40 clubs in New England!   

We are excited to be hosting our 9th Tee-Up New England Online Auction event April 12-19th, 2021.  Our hopes are that we are able to promote the game of golf through participation in this event that will contribute to Turfgrass Research Funding.  This event opens to golfers, courses that they might not normally have access to in New England.  We also have asked, all courses in N.E. to contribute and to be involved, hoping that all will benefit from the research. Thank you for your interest in golf in New England and for helping to make it a better game through Turfgrass Research!

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.
