Postponing the 2020 Bruneau Scholarship Golf Tournament

— Written By

The Turf Work Group has decided to postpone the Bruneau Scholarship Golf Tournament that was scheduled for October 21, 2020. Depending on how COVID-19 progresses we hope to host a tournament in the spring, but are planning that at the very least it will return in the fall of 2021. We are grateful for the support of the industry for this event over the past 11 years. Thanks to your continued support, we were able to award $12,500 in scholarships this year to nine deserving students in the two-year, four-year, and graduate programs studying turfgrass management at NC State University. Awardees were selected based on merit, financial need, and their history of volunteering at the Bruneau tournament in the past.

Thanks to your participation since this event started in 2009, we have been able to award almost $100,000 in student scholarships that have directly benefitted the student. Please check back as we will provide an update on this year’s recipients and to future plans for the event.

A personal message from Art: “I feel so honored to be a part of something that is benefiting the future leaders in the turfgrass industry—and I’m humbled that it is in my name. Thank you for everything you have done to support this scholarship.”
