Tournament History

The Stewards of the Chesapeake event was established in 2000 by the MAAGCS in order to develop a primary source of funding to support local research projects, support environmental efforts, and government relations as they pertain to the golf industry. MAAGCS members can invite their club or company representatives to participate for the preservation and improvement of both the game of golf and our environment. The tournament has raised over $100,000 since its inception, and proceeds benefit the MAAGCS BMP Project, Maryland Association of Green Industries (MAGI), various universities, the GCSAA and other groups supporting environmental issues, such as the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. In 2014 the proceeds were used to help fund the MAGI, which advocates on our behalf our industry with local, state and federal legislators.

In 2015 designation of proceeds went towards the important Best Management Practices program that the association is preparing to launch. The association has partnered with the University of Maryland, the GCSAA, corporate partners, allied associations, our own members and others who support this important cause. The initiative was kicked off in 2014 with a donation from GCSAA’s Environmental Institute for Golf. Developing Best Management Practices for our specific area will ensure that we have a sustainable approach to and can continue providing environmental, economic and social benefits to golf and society.  Your support of the Stewards of the Chesapeake event is a key element for our success.

Supporting Turfgrass Research, Scholarships &

Government Relations

In past years, money from this event has been allocated to supporting the BMP project. As this project in the final stages, funds from this year's tournament will be used to support local turfgrass research, turfgrass student scholarships as well as our Mid-Atlantic turfgrass lobbyist. In 2017 alone, MAAGCS will be contributing $15,000 to the University of Maryland's research initiatives which include examining turfgrass microbiomes and alternative fungicide products.


The event is open to all MAAGCS members and suppliers, their friends, colleagues (club professionals, GMs, board members) and associates at golf clubs in and around Maryland, Washington, DC, and Virginia. We encourage Maryland legislators to participate in this event, which gives promise to Maryland’s environmental stewardship. Clubs are encouraged to support this important cause by fielding a team.

Format and Rules

Format for the tournament is four-man Shamble. Each player drives and all players play from the selected spot. Two best balls net (80% handicap). USGA Rules govern play, as modified by Local Rules.
