Through donations and support from industry partners the OTRF continues to fund turfgrass research to ensure the sustainability and continued viability of the turf maintenance industry. Increased restrictions with regards to how turf is managed and the inputs that are used is making it increasingly difficult for superintendents and turf managers to deliver the same quality of playing surfaces year after year. The OTRF, with over 35 years of experience of providing funds for turfgrass research, has played a major part in investigating ways that managers of turf can lessen the inputs for turf without sacrificing the standards needed to attract people to the game

With climatic and environmental challenges, along with increasing strains on maintenance budgets, natural turf, whether on a golf course, sports field or managed landscape is taking a beating. The OTRF is funding key research projects in 2018, all of which have the potential to significantly reduce inputs needed to maintain turfgrass moving forward. However, as one might expect, quality research comes at a cost and the OTRF requests your assistance by registering in our annual fundraising campaign. Your registration and sponsorship in this fundraising golf event is an investment in the turf maintenance industry

All sponsors are encouraged to ask to contact the OTRF office to arrange your specialized sponsorship package.

In addition to our new online credit payment registration, payment is also accepted by cheque following invoicing by our office.
