Want To Play East Lake? Sage Valley? Long Cove?

If you're looking to play golf someplace special you might not otherwise have the opportunity to play, here's your chance.

And you can help the turgrass industry in the process.

Rounds4Research, which started in North Carolina last year, will include courses in South Carolina, Texas and Virginia this year, giving golfers the opportunity to participate in an online auction for rounds of golf at more than 500 courses, including some very famous and very private ones.

The money raised will go to benefit turfgrass research at Clemson University and N.C. State.

The online auction will be held April 7-21 and information is available at www.Rounds4Research.com.

Among courses that are offering spots for foursomes are East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta; Harbour Town Golf Links at Hilton Head; Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro; Pinehurst No. 2; Kiawah Island's Ocean Course; Yeaman's Hall near Charleston, S.C.; Sage Valley near Augusta, Ga.; Eagle Point near Wilmington; Love Cove Club at Hilton Head; and, The Homestead's Cascades Course in Virginia.

U.S. Open champion and Clemson alum Lucas Glover has signed on as spokesman for the project, which raised more than $55,000 for trufgrass research last year.

I hear they are rebuilding the old Sharon Golf Course on the corner of Park Road.
