Smith Turf & Irrigation

It started in Minneapolis in 1925 when E. J. Smith became one of the first few Toro golf maintenance equipment distributors. While he didn't know much about golf, he knew for his business to be successful it must be built around three basic principles: great products, exceptional service and an absolute commitment to the customer’s success. While a lot has changed since 1925, thank goodness a lot hasn’t. Those timeless elements still steer this customer-focused business as their 245+ dedicated employees continue the legacy of E. J. Smith as the leader in the golf industry in the Carolinas, Tennessee and Virginia.
