Monday May 2nd, 2022 at Inverness Country Club

Join your colleagues for the popular, the Poa annua Classic, and support turfgrass research!  100% of the proceeds from this event are donated to the Alabama Turfgrass Research Foundation (ATRF).  To date, ATRF has funded over $130,000 in turfgrass research.  We have more work to do, but we need your support to ensure we continue offering beneficial research. 

Come out on Monday, May 2nd to Inverness Country Club! This year we are pleased to have James Spann with us to speak on “Getting Accurate Weather Information In A Sea Of Misinformation”. James Max Spann, Jr. is a television meteorologist based in Birmingham, Alabama. He currently works for WBMA, Birmingham's ABC affiliate. Spann has worked in the field since 1978. His degree is from Mississippi State University. 

Come play and bring a team! Teams of two will be paired or you can bring your own foursome! Enjoy Box lunches at the start of the shotgun start!

Tee sign sponsorships are also available to help support turfgrass research.  All sponsorships will include a listing in the event program, tournament signage and listing in the Turf Times and Alabama Green magazines.  What a great way to show your support of our industry and turfgrass research!

Come out and support the cause...register today!
