Golf Ventures welcomes Jeff Huelsman, CGCS, as Territory Manager for the southwest Florida sales team. He will be working with new and existing clients in Hillsborough, Polk, Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte, Hardee, Desoto, and Lee counties.

Huelsman brings a depth of knowledge from both the golf course and manufacturing sides of the industry. He joins Golf Ventures from Syngenta, manufacturer and distributor of crop protection products that are also recommended and sold by Golf Ventures. Prior to that, he had 21 years of experience as a golf course superintendent in southwest Florida.

Golf Ventures is pleased to further improve and expand its services and expertise with Huelsman’s diverse background. Director of Sales Jason Gray states, “Jeff brings great contacts and understanding of the golf industry. He is very professional and knowledgeable as an agronomic specialist. Golf Ventures prides itself on that kind of professional expertise.”

Huelsman says he grew up in the golf industry - caddying, cart washing, and doing miscellaneous tasks at golf courses in his teens. He earned his turf management certificate from Pennsylvania State University and is a Certified Golf Course Superintendent. Huelsman is a member of the Golf Course Superintendents Association, the Florida Turfgrass Association, as well as several local chapters of FTGA.

“I’ve done business with Golf Ventures for many years,” notes Huelsman. “This is a new challenge. I’ve never been on this side of sales, selling directly to users. I am thankful for the opportunity. The Golf Ventures lineup is one of the best in the industry, and I'm ready to hit the ground running.”

Huelsman originally hails from Kalamazoo Michigan but prefers the Florida climate. He has two sons in college and enjoys golfing, fishing, and other outdoor activities.   Follow Jeff on Twitter at @jahuelsman.
