Golfers have a chance to raise money for turfgrass education and research at Texas A&M University while enjoying a competitive round of golf.
The Texas AgriLife Research and Extension Urban Solutions Center at Dallas will host the A&M Invitational Golf Tournament on Monday, Sept. 14 at the Brookhaven Country Club in Dallas.
Gene Stallings, a former Texas A&M football coach and current member of the Texas A&M System Board of Regents, is tournament host.
Since its inception in 1998, this tournament has raised more than $700,000 to support research, education and extension programs in turfgrass science within the Department of Soil and Crops Sciences at Texas A&M University through the Texas Turfgrass Research, Education and Extension Endowment.
The endowment, began initially by the Texas Turfgrass Association in 1997, has funded research on developing grasses and management systems that have less demand for water and pesticides and are environmentally friendly.
