Evergreen Turf participated in the First Annual Doug and Wolf’s Cornhole Cup this year, not only as sponsors, but also as a team in the competition. The Cornhole Cup was put on by KTAR Sports 620 and partnered with the Boys and Girls Club of Metropolitan Phoenix. At the end of an amazing day of playing Cornhole, the event raised over $13,000 for the Boys and Girls Club of Metropolitan Phoenix.

The day started with Evergreen Turf arriving at CityScape in Downtown Phoenix at 5:30am to set up the field for the Cornhole Cup. CityScape is mostly concrete, with accent areas of grass that Evergreen installed back when they opened in Fall 2010. As a partner in the event, Evergreen supplied a natural Arizona sod creating a lush green playing field on top of the concrete. Arizona sod, Tifway 419 set the scene for the tournament to begin.

As the team battled it out, the turf held up heroically surprising many a player and spectator. Once folks learned the Tifway 419 was the same sod variety used on the Arizona Cardinals field they knew it would hold up as the games continued. Coach Whisenhunt of the Arizona Cardinals even came out for a few rounds on the boards.

Everyone had a great time, whether their teams were still playing on the boards, hanging out drinking and, eating BBQ or watching the tournament. In the end, one team walked away with the grand prize. It was close to midnight when the grand prize was awarded and the turf still looked great!

Evergreen Turf had such a great time at the event. Owner Jimmy Fox played on the Evergreen Turf team that came in 6th out of 64 teams. Way to go team Evergreen!

Evergreen Turf always enjoys getting out and supporting our community and we were happy to participate in such a great day supporting the Boys and Girls Club of Metropolitan Phoenix at the Cornhole Cup.
