Everglades Golf Course Supers pledge $15,000 to Environmental Institute for Golf
Everglades Golf Course Three-year pledge boosts chapter support to more than $100,00
The Everglades Golf Course Superintendents Association has pledged $15,000 over three years to support the Environmental Institute for Golf (EIFG), the philanthropic organization of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA). The gift boosts the Everglades GCSA to more than $100,000 in giving to the EIFG since 1987.
With the pledge, the 350-member Everglades chapter moves to Presidential Club status within the EIFG’s cumulative giving program. The chapter is also included as a Platinum Tee Club member, a program that recognizes organizations that give $5,000 or more annually to the EIFG.
“We are in a very good market for golf and we set a high bar for our association,” said Bryce Koch, Everglades chapter president. “We are honored to be able to support EIFG and what it does for industry research and scholarships.”
The Everglades GCSA was founded in 1968. It is one of 98 state and regional chapters that carry an affiliation with GCSAA.
