Turf Net Sport Supplies


Turf Net Sports Supplies (TNSS) was started by Tim Proctor in September of 2005 with the assistance of a silent investor. The business operated from Tim's home with the garage acting as a warehouse. At the time TNSS was selling products and equipment to  miniature golf courses, driving ranges and golf courses throughout Canada.

In 2006 Turf Net introduced the supply and installation of artificial turf for putting greens, miniature golf courses as well as residential installations and hired our first team member to look after the turf side of the company.

The business continued to grow. In 2007 the business was moved from the home office to the current location occupying 1800 sq.ft. Within a year, (2008)  the office and warehouse needed to expand again. Taking over another unit beside our main office, the facility expanded again to 3600 sq.ft and now included two indoor golf cages. Another team member was hired to assist with our accounting.

Also in 2008 another piece of equipment to logo golf balls, divot repair tools, baseballs and hockey pucks as well as individual tiles used for favours at wedding parties and handouts. Another two team members were hired to help with turf installations as that part of the business continued to grow.

In 2009 the first indoor golf Simulator from Foresight Sports was added to our facility, offering yet another service in Niagara Region. TNSS started an indoor golf league with 7 golfers. The following year a second indoor golf simulator was added. The golf league grew to 20 golfers that year and 31 golfers the following year. It continues to grow each year. 

Slow Feed Netting was formed as a division of Turf Net Sports Supplies in 2009 expanding our netting line to the equine industry. Our hay netting for horses mimics the natural grazing for horses. The slow feed netting products are sold throughout North America.

As the company grew, a need for additional sales team members was required. In 2012 we added sales reps for our golf supply products in Southern Ontario and Central Ontario and introduced our very first golf catalog sent to golf courses across Canada.

In 2014 the company started to supply and install netting for the craze at the time “Indoor Trampoline Parks”.

Tim and Turf Net Sports Supplies were honoured in 2015 with the Niagara Entrepreneur of the Year Award as well as the Welland / Pelham Chamber of Commerce Ruby Award for Business Initiative.  He was also nominated for the Green Initiative Award.
