About Us:

TurfNet was founded in 1994 as a place for golf course superintendents to share experiences and opinions, avoid problems, save money, help others, get help when needed and have a little fun in the process.

We are one of those "virtual" companies with a small staff of talented, empowered, independent people who thrive on efficiency, flexibility, productivity and enjoying what we do.

TurfNet is now the second longest-tenured media entity in the turf industry. We have been successful for twenty years by listening to our members and advertisers, responding to their needs and offering consistently high value for every level of investment.
