Welcome to the Oregon Turfgrass Foundation
The Oregon Turfgrass Foundation is composed of turfgrass industry professionals and allied experts who seek to enhance turfgrass users’ experiences and turfgrass conditions. The OTF raises funds to improve the understanding of turfgrass needs, conditions and benefits. Funds raised will provide support for student scholarships and higher education projects including the identification of input efficiencies. The OTF is dedicated to enhancing turfgrass use and its enjoyment.
Since its inception in 2001, the OTF and its precursor organization, the OGCSA Foundation, has raised nearly $300,000 through individual and corporate donations as well as from the annual OGCSA Foundation Golf Tournament.
The OTF financially supports the Oregon State University Turfgrass Program and helps ensure its success through the establishment of an endowment. Research projects recommended and funded by the OTF serve to benefit Oregon’s state wide turfgrass industry. The OTF actively engages in outreach to the turfgrass industry seeking to both receive and share information.
Congratulations to the Bandon Dunes Raffle winner Randy Rider. We would like to give a big thanks to Bandon Dunes for donating this great prize. We would also like to thank everyone that purchased tickets and supported the raffle. This was the first year conducting a raffle like this and it has been a great additional source to help us reach our fundrasing goals.
The Oregon Turfgrass Foundation would like to give a big thanks to all the participants and sponsors who attended and supported the Golf Tournament and Auction in September.
