Alabama Turfgrass Association

ATAmainThe Alabama Turfgrass Association has been serving the community for 55 years. In the latest issue of Alabama Turftimes, ATA Executive Director wrote a nice article chronicling the history of ATA, which started out as the Alabama-Northwest Florida Turfgrass Association. The association has grown from 25 golf course superintendents to 650 members that encompass all turfgrass managers and industry suppliers.

We are proud of our own, Eric Merkt, who has been a part of the history of ATA. Although our company is still a baby in comparison to a lot of other equipment manufacturers, we have been a part of the turf industry for over 20 years. Eric initially got his start in irrigation and found that people were constantly asking him how to grow the grass. He then joined the turfgrass association so that he would be able to give people the information they needed. This knowledge then allowed him to break into athletic field construction. As he began building and maintaining athletic fields, he found the need for turf maintenance equipment, so started designing and building it himself. After years of using the equipment himself in his own construction business, we started g2 turftools. We are proud to be in the turf industry and still remain a part of the Alabama Turfgrass Association. Here’s to 55 more years!
