Fundraising Golf Tournament

The OTRF would like to thank everyone for coming out and supporting turfgrass research at the annual fundraising golf tournament. Thornhill Golf & Country Club, as hosts of our annual event, was an excellent venue for our supporters to enjoy an excellent day of golf, food and business networking.

Thanks to all our tournament sponsors listed on the 2015 Sponsor tab

Join us at Mississauga Golf & Country Club in August next year for another great day of fundraising and golf.

Association Donations: 

Without the support of the membership of turfgrass related industry associations, many OTRF turfgrass research grants would not be funded.


The OTRF would like to thank the Ontario Golf Superintendents’ Association for their foresight in encouraging their membership to contribute $20,000 this year to the OTRF turfgrass Research program.

The Golf Association of Ontario also recognize the value to their members of financially supporting turfgrass research and presented a $15,000 cheque at the golf tournament.
In addition the OTRF acknowledges the annually contributions from  other industry associations which include the National Golf Course Owners Association, Sports Turf Canada, Landscape Ontario- Horts Trade and the Nursery Sod Growers of Ontario.
