Golf Professionals

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

Our passion for golf starts at the top... When company owners Ron and Steve Schiedel say they built Willow Valley, they mean it. Many people know them as hands-on guys that never hesitate to jump in if something needs to be bulldozed, seeded, sodded or hand raked. Willow Valley was built in 1994, once the Schiedels had about 20 years of turf cultivating experience. Fast forward to today, we have learned more than we ever could have imagined about specialty turfgrass for golf courses. We forensically understand the nature of bentgrass, fescue, and bluegrass and we have the team and equipment to get the job done right.

We have years of experience working with golf course owners, superintendents and golf course contractors to ensure their grounds are in immaculate condition. Combined with operating the golf course on a daily basis, Greenhorizons is able to serve the golf course industry in unprecedented ways.
