Ohio Turfgrass Foundation Scholarship And Research Golf Scramble
The Ohio Turfgrass Foundation (OTF) is holding its annual Scholarship and Research fundraising scramble Thursday, September 30 at the Golf Club of Dublin, Dublin, Ohio.
Superintendent and OSU Alumnus Rob Fisher plans to have the course in premier condition for the event. Designed by Dr. Michael Hurdzan and Dana Fry, the Golf Club of Dublin is a championship course designed with the flair of both Irish and Scottish golf architecture. Since its opening in 2002, the Golf Club of Dublin has already begun to accumulate awards—Honorable Mention, Top 25 new courses by Golf Magazine, #2 course in Ohio & #5 new course in the Midwest by Great Lakes Golf Magazine.
The Golf Club of Dublin is 7,021-yards par 72 course that has 1800 feet of hand stacked stone walls from the Irish countryside, fine-fescue fairways, over seventy hand stacked sod-wall bunkers positioned precariously throughout the course, seventeen holes with water, and 9,000-square-foot greens. The course will leave players thinking they have just played Turnberry or Carnoustie, to name a few.
The 2003 tournament, held at the Foxfire’s Players Club in Lockbourne, generated over $11,000 for the OTF Scholarship and Research fund.
Next to the OTF Conference and Show, the Golf Tournament generates the most non-dues revenue for OTF. Lawn care companies, sod producers, athletic field managers, grounds managers and golf course superintendents and their staff are encouraged to participate and support OTF's mission of funding turfgrass research and education.
"We urge everyone to register as either an individual or team", exclaimed OTF executive director Kevin Thompson. “It is a great way to build staff loyalty and to reward employees for their hard work - while supporting OTF".
Also contributing to the success of the tournament are the sponsors. “We would be remiss in not mentioning the fact that sponsors play a huge role in the success of the tournament” adds Mark Jordan, OTF Golf Tournament Committee Chair. Interested sponsors should contact the OTF office for more details on the 2004 OTF Golf Tournament, please call the Ohio Turfgrass Foundation at 888-683-3445; fax 740-452-2552; e-mail to info@OhioTurfgrass.org or visit www.OhioTurfgrass.org.
