Poa / GC Horn History

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE “POA”

The Everglades Chapter of the Florida GCSA was just two years old when it invited the South Florida Chapter for a casual get-together. In 1970 a golf match was set up after this annual meeting and in 1971 it was decided to award the winners of the golf match a pail of Poa as a prize. This action would eventually lead to the current name of the event. In 1972, Doc Anderson, a local vendor offered to provide a barbeque style meal at the meeting. In 1975, the event was officially dubbed the Poa Annua Golf Classic. As it continued to grow, other chapters of the Florida GCSA were invited and the location of the event was changed to other courses such as Lehigh, Mirror Lakes and Oxbow. While the tournament was at Mirror Lakes the board of directors of the Florida GCSA decided to hold one of its board meetings in conjunction with the event. In 1980, a permanent home was established at the Naples Beach Hotel and GC. The Poa Annua Golf Classic has grown into one of the most enjoyable events of the year for Florida superintendents, and their families.

 

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE G.C. HORN MEMORIAL TOURNAMENT

In 1959, Dr. Granville “Granny” C. Horn took over the leadership of the turfgrass program at the University of Florida. Within a few years, he built the program into the most comprehensive in the South and among the best in the nation. In the late sixties and early seventies, more turfgrass research was done under Dr. Horn’s guidance than all the other schools in the Southeast combined. At the same time G.C. was preparing students for the “real” world of turfgrass management.

For this reason, following his death in 1982 a decision was made to establish the Dr. G.C. Horn Memorial Endowment Fund. The golf event, held in conjunction with the Poa Annua Golf Classic, is the primary fund raiser for the endowment fund. General questions should be directed to Matt Taylor (239) 261-4987 or Darren Davis (239) 353-4441.
