Our supporters range from individuals to large corporations, and all are dedicated to raising the understanding and awareness of sustainability for the golf industry.
Many of our supporters have established decades-long relationships with the EIFG -- it's clear that their dedication is not a fad or trend.

The EIFG, along with GCSAA, has taken this a step further with the development of performance statements.
EIFG representatives also assisted in the development of GCSAA education's core competencies, which ensure that the education curriculum is in sync with the current, and future, demands of the golf course superintendents' profession.
In recent updates to the core competencies, a new environmental management section was added, further demonstrating the commitment of the profession.
Research that is important to superintendents and the courses they keep has always been, and remains, a cornerstone of the EIFG's efforts, dating back to when it was founded as the GCSAA Scholarship and Research Fund in 1955.

Some are wrapped within social expectations governing land use and water use, especially in light of permitting new development or reconstruction as well as daily course operations.
Scholarships funded by the EIFG provide financial assistance to students who are pursuing a career in golf course management, future researchers and educators, as well as children and grandchildren of GCSAA members.
