About Us

Stephen Bates

Steve was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. He is the oldest of three, a St. Francis DeSales High School Graduate, a Veteran of the United States Army, a Graduate of the University of Phoenix, a Toledo Police Department Officer, and most importantly a husband and father of four. He is active in the community and committed to Toledo and surrounding areas. Steve worked with family for 5 years in Pheonix, AZ where he learned the specialized skills and training required to install and maintain this unique and individualized customer vision. His family owns a successful company in the western region. When he moved back to his hometown and installed his own putting green, he waited several years to see how it would withstand the Midwestern climate. After many inquiries and requests for installation, he knew his expertise could translate into this region.
