Stop by Booth 1629 and say hey to George and Scott Kinkead, the third generation of the Kinkead family to lead a family business in the turf industry. With a lineage that started with the National Mower Company of St. Paul, Minnesota 100 years ago, George (president, right in the photo) and Scott (EVP) continue the family tradition of innovation, leadership and service to the golf turf industry.
National Mower was founded by George and Scott's grandfather, Robert S. Kinkead, shortly after World War I. The early product line included horse- and tractor-drawn reel and sickle bar mowers. Turfco was founded in 1961 by John Kinkead Sr. (the brothers' father) with the introduction of the first mechanized topdresser... a welcome respite from wheelbarrows and shovel-slinging of the day.
In celebration of the milestone, the Kinkead brothers will present a check for $25,000 to GCSAA's Environmental Institute for Golf Foundation.
Turfco is also giving away a WideSpin 1550 broadcast topdresser and five Go Pro HERO7 Silver cameras in their 100 Years of Thanks Giveaway. Register here or at the booth.
