The story began when Professional Turfgrass Solutions owner and president, Adam Van Dyke, took his first job at a golf course and decided to pursue a career in golf course management. He attended Utah State University and received a B.S. degree in Horticulture with a Turfgrass Management emphasis in 2002. Shortly after, Adam was hired as the superintendent at a local golf course. During his time as a superintendent he discovered his interest in the science behind managing turfgrass.

Adam obtained a M.S. degree in Plant Science with a minor in Soil Science in 2008 from Utah State University where he studied the effects of humic substances on the water holding capacity of putting green rootzones. At this time he realized his passion for research and turf science and desired to continue doing both after graduating.

In 2008 Adam founded Professional Turfgrass Solutions LLC to fill a unique niche by providing contract research and consulting services in the Intermountain West. Since its inception Adam has had the privilege to work with a wide range of companies, golf courses, and professionals. Adam’s experience and network allow him to cater to his clientele and ultimately provide the best possible services – and solutions – to the turf industry.
