Rounds 4 Research - An Auction for Golfers

Highlands Falls Country Club is once again a sponsor for Rounds 4 Research.  The club has continually supported this worth while program by donating a foursome in support of continued turfgrass research while also helping to secure golf's future.  The premise is simple, clubs donate a round of golf and the public bids on those rounds.  The money raised is then used to support research and programs that help build the game of golf.

Please visit to bid and see a list of all the courses throughout the country that you have an opportunity bid on and hopefully win.  This is a great opportunity to get with some friends and play at a facility that you may not otherwise get to play.

As of this writing, Highlands Falls is in the top 10 in North Carolina which includes 121 different courses.  A sample of some of the other courses that are available to bid on include:

  • Pinehurst No. 2
  • Sage Valley
  • Secession Golf Club
  • East Lake Golf Club
  • Shoal Creek

If you have any questions on Rounds 4 Research, here is the some additional info:

May1st, Opening Day.....and 2 Inches of Rain!

With the best of intentions for a grand opening of the 2017 golf season, Mother Nature thought otherwise.  With 2 inches of rain and counting, opening day has been a bust or a "wash".  We have spent most of the day cutting up trees that have fallen, picking up debris, and cleaning off catch basins.  At least the 15th hole has been awesome to look at!

The fun job of cleaning out catch basins.
