TO OUR
FOUNDATION

WHO WE ARE

ORGANIZED& FUNDED BY

The Tri-State Turf Research Foundation is concerned with finding environmentally safe controls for turfgrass pests and problems common to tri-state area golf courses in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.  Orchestrating the foundation's activities is a Board of Directors made up of three representatives from each of the six affiliated associations: the MetGCSA, New Jersey GCSA, Connecticut AGCS, Long Island GCSA, Hudson Valley GCSA, and the MGA. Every year, the list of foundation-funded research grows with one goal in mind:

 

Building better golf and a safer environment through turfgrass research.

 

WE SUPPORT RESEARCH
ON TURF

SINCE 1990

Operating via donations from clubs and vendors in the tri-state area, the foundation works with researchers at several universities in the Northeast-Cornell, Rutgers, University of Connecticut, University of Massachusetts, University of Rhode Island, and most recently, Penn State.

Your Support

An annual contribution of $250 to the Tri-State Turf Research Foundation's efforts is truly a small price to pay for the many benefits you receive-research that continues to be on the cutting edge of turf management and environmental sustainability.

MADE POSSIBLE THROUGH 6 AFFILIATED ASSOCIATIONS

ORCHESTRATING ACTIVITIES

Collectively, the six associations mentioned above raise approximately $50K each year to support local universities and their research- generally three to five studies per year. Every year, the list of foundation-funded research grows with one goal in mind: Building better golf and a safer environment through turfgrass research.
