Bill L. Rose

Turfgrass Research Foundation

BLR Memorial Golf Tournament

June 22nd, 2023 • 2:00 pm 
Oregon Golf Association • Woodburn, Oregon

In memory of our founder, Bill L. Rose, a foundation has been started in his name. The mission of the foundation is to bridge the gap between university students and the turfgrass industry. Provide educational opportunities for students to learn and engage with the industry by travel credit to industry shows and field days. And to support environmentally sustainable turfgrass research, production and development. 

In order to raise money, the foundation has started a golf tournament. The inaugural tournament was kicked off in North Carolina in June 2022. The 2nd annual tournament will be held in Oregon following Field Day. More details to come.
