As the leading worldwide marketer of bentgrass, Tee-2-Green provides the best bentgrass products backed by the industry’s most extensive research. Grown only by the Penncross Growers Association, Penn bentgrass seed has been proven reliable in comprehensive turf trials and become universally respected through widespread use by superintendents.
Today, through state-of-the-art breeding techniques, the dependable Penn bents are taking on new, desirable traits while retaining the attributes that originally made them popular. The new generation of Penn varieties is bred to perform better and provide more beautiful turf with additional qualities such as disease resistance, salt tolerance, the need for fewer inputs, and the ability of provide better turf under low mowing conditions.
“Throughout our 38-year history, Tee-2-Green has remained committed to providing the best products backed by the most in-depth research,” says Bill Rose, Tee-2-Green president. “From Penncross to Crystal BlueLinks, all of our varieties have been tested for 10 years or more before ever being used on a golf course. A vital component to our success has been working with students and superintendents through educational and sponsorship opportunities, so it’s a natural fit to be involved with the GCSAA Partner Recognition Program.”
A long-time supporter of GCSAA and its members, Tee-2-Green has committed to participate in the association’s Partner Recognition Program at the “Silver” level, and in particular, the philanthropic organization, The Environmental Institute of Golf. The company is recognized at the Executive Club level through the Institute’s cumulative giving program of organizations that have contributed between $25,000 and $49,999 since 1987.
“Like Tee-2-Green, the GCSAA is committed entirely to golf course management,” explains Rose. “We’re pleased to support the organization and be an active participant in the Golf Industry Show and the association’s magazine, as well as other vehicles that support the industry and educate the superintendents we aim to serve.”
Tee-2-Green is proud to have several programs aimed specifically at educating the industry especially turfgrass students. In addition to handing out copies of Practical Golf Course Maintenance at the Golf Industry Show, Tee-2-Green also presents to turfgrass students across the country. The “College Tour” is part of Tee-2-Green’s ongoing initiative of reaching out to university turfgrass students and consists of presenting to GCSAA Student Chapter meetings.
