Golf Professionals

 

Golf is in the blood at Greenhorizons. Besides having worked for decades to produce and install the highest quality sod for golf, the group built what was voted best course in Hamilton for 2010, Willow Valley Golf Course.

The passion and knowledge of golf starts at the top at Greenhorizons. When company owners, Ron and Steve Schiedel, say built Willow Valley, they mean it. Many know them as hands-on guys that didn’t hesitate to jump in if something needed to be bulldozed, seeded, sodded or hand raked.

Greenhorizons knowledge comes from years of experience working with golf course owners, superintendents and golf course contractors. Combined with operating the golf course on a daily basis, this experience allows Greenhorizons to serve the golf course industry in unparalleled ways.

If you need some specialty turf for your course or help with a renovation, Greenhorizons can serve you.
