Our Story

A Growing Idea to A Growing Company

True-Surface® by Turfline’s story is one of pure American will and opportunity. While working for a local Toro distributor, John Humphrey, CEO, realized golf course greens rolling is a logical agronomic practice that he could sell. In 1984 Humphrey went out on his own under the name of Turfline, Inc. as a turf distributor working out of his home while developing the idea for the world’s first vibratory greens roller that would attach directly to a triplex greens mower.

His hard work soon paid off, and was awarded the patent for the True-Surface® Vibratory Greens Rollers in 1992. That same year True-Surface® was used in preparation for the PGA tournament held at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis, MO.

True-Surface® by Turfline was on a roll and growing fast

What started out as a single salesman working out of his home quickly grew into a fully staffed office and manufacturing facility. Today, Turfline offers a complete line of patented True-Surface® products to golf courses around the world, including:
