Marty Shaffer - OwnerMarty Shaffer started Pro Turf Outdoor Services in March of 2008 while attending Ferris State University. Previously, Marty gained experience while working on the golf course maintenance crews for The Bear Golf Course at The Grand Traverse Resort and Twin Birch Golf Course during his college summer breaks while returning to his hometown of Kalkaska, Michigan. He then would find himself at the Tullymore Golf Resort in Stanwood, Michigan while taking summer classes at Ferris State in 2007. At that time, he found himself maintaining lawns for his landlord and a small number of friends. During that summer and throughout the following winter months, Pro Turf Outdoor Services was born. He worked diligently that first year to lay the groundwork to what has become a strong small business.
Marty is a Certified Pesticide Applicator, a Rain Bird Irrigation Academy Graduate, and belongs to the Michigan Turf Grass Association. His passion is to have continued success for Pro Turf Outdoor Services and its staff. His hobbies are golf, spending time with friends and family, refereeing ice hockey, and coaching high school baseball. Marty and his wife, Katelyn, reside in Big Rapids.
