Golf Ventures is proud to sponsor the 2017 Jeff Hayden Memorial Envirotron Golf Classic being held at the  prestigious World Woods Golf Club in Brooksville, FL.  Golf Ventures invites our partners, vendors and superintendents throughout the state of Florida to honor our friend and help support turfgrass research. The Tournament is on Monday, April 17.

The tournament is run by the Seven Rivers GCSA which has raised over $1 million since its inception in 1993 and has donated the proceeds to help fund turfgrass research for the past 25 years.  The Jeff Hayden Memorial Envirotron Golf Classic is one of the main turfgrass fundraisers held in the State of Florida, offers the opportunity to play for a greener future.

Proceeds from the tournament and silent auction assist in supporting its namesake-the Envirotron Research Laboratory, located at the University of Florida in Gainesville.  The only one-of-its kind in the U.S., the 3,100-square foot, state-of-the-art field research laboratory opened in November 1993 to study and develop new technology to enhance the relationship of Turfgrass with biological, environmental and cultural factors. The facility was dedicated to the memory of Jeff Hayden in 2005.

Golf Ventures is committed to providing turfgrass professionals with sound agronomic solutions, quality products and high levels of customer service.  Please join Golf Ventures and your peers at the Envirotron Classic as we promote future success for the industry through continued turfgrass research.

The event would appreciate your support this year.  As a sponsor, your company will be acknowledged on the banner at the event and in the Florida Green magazine advertising by the Envirotron Committee.  Please call Case Gard at 863-665-5800 ext 286, to participate.

On December 6, 2002 we lost a special colleague and friend Jeffery Paul Hayden. We try to honor him every year through our support of Envirotron,  for which Jeff was a champion.  It's been almost 15 years since his passing, but his final words of advice is still appropriate today.
