Here is a chance to bid on foursomes at some of the best courses in Virginia and beyond. The first round of the EIFG Rounds4Research auction, “Golf’s Great Online Auction” runs until October 15th, 2012.
Golf enthusiasts now have access to hundreds of golf courses through online auctions of golf rounds, thanks to Rounds 4 Research.
Accessible through the popular online auction site www.biddingforgood.com, the first auction period will be Oct. 1 – 15, featuring nearly 70 courses in nine different states. Subsequent auctions will be conducted Oct. 22 – Nov. 5, Nov. 12 – 26, and Dec. 3 – 17.
At present, 250 rounds, defined as a foursome, are up for auction. Additional rounds are being secured, likely to drive that number considerably higher.
Rounds 4 Research is a fundraising program with the goal of generating resources to support agronomic research for golf courses. It is in response to previous funding sources, both public and private, being eliminated. The program is being administered by the Environmental Institute for Golf, the philanthropic organization of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America.
