Host Superintendent-Nate Maurer

The Memorial Tournament was established as a fund-raising vehicle by the North Florida Chapter in April of 1993 as a way to honor Mike Richards and his dedication to the golf profession. The tournament funds scholarships for students in the North Florida area who are seeking a turf related career path. The family of Allan MacCurrach has also been instrumental in promoting the scholarship fund in memory of Allan and his accomplishments in the Golf Field
