Turf Direct 8350 east Evans RD. Scottsdale AZ 85260. SUITE A-1. Company uses illegal aliens that don't speak English. Turf Direct is dishonest to customers explaining they have been in business for many years. Go the az roc. Check out turf direct license number #264549 company has only been in business since 4/20/2010. The owner Ken Galinski got his license on 4/20/2010. The facts are on the roc website. This company has only been in business for LESS then 3 years. Although he claims turf direct has many years of experience. Hole in one greens was his families company. They went out of business, filed bankruptcy.

Check out the information on turf direct website Ask the company why most of the products are not available. False advertising on website. Illegal aliens-which is against the law in Arizona. This company is horrific!

If your turf peels up, they will send regular nails ups so you can nail it back down yourself. Even after a few weeks. Nice10 year warranty. The company hires 100% commissioned sales employees from free Craig list ads that last a few months, because he doesn't pay them their commissions they have earned. Stay away from this company! Do your research, talk to his free Craigslist sales force, check out website. This company is extremely sad, don't get ripped off like we did!

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Respond from TurfDIRECT


We sincerely regret this negative review and hope that our consumers will consider the following information disproving the above claims. Please be aware that this review was posted by a previous employee who was let go from TurfDirect and is as a result disgruntled with the company.


TurfDirect is a small family-owned company. The owner,  Ken Galinski, developed the company after serving many years with his father's company, Hole in One Putting Greens.  The claim that Hole In One Putting Greens previously filed bankruptcy is not true. The Hole In One company that Mr. Galinski's family owned (License Number AZ173314) filed for voluntary cancellation of the business on 5/19/2010, which can be verified in public records (please see The license for that company was originally made active on 03/26/2002. There was a company named Hole in One in Indiana that filed bankruptcy, but Mr. Galinski's family had no involvement with that company. Mr. Ken Galinski helped to manage and operate the Arizona Hole In One company with his father, before partnering with a colleague in the management of another company, Paradise Greens. In 2006, Mr. Galinski created his own company, TurfDirect, through which he continues to offer services in sale and installation of articifical turf and putting greens. Mr. Galinski has worked with the same manufactor for over 15 years.


All of the staff employed by TurfDirect have paperwork on file documenting their citizenship, and our business practices are consistent with legal mandates. We take care to select employees who have demonstrated excellence in their trade. Turf installation requires a careful eye and diligent work ethic, and we closely monitor staff to ensure optimal service delivery and customer satisfaction.

Nails are not mailed to the home as stated above, and we regret that such false claims have been made.


We sincerely hope that readers and consumers will refer to reviews beyond this one when researching a company that may best serve their needs.
