Providing excellent customer service.

Arms Turf Products is a division of The Arms Trucking Company. Brian Bates leads the sales team for this division and is constantly looking for opportunities to help provide customers what they need.

After graduating from Ohio State and spending three years as the Assistant Superintendent at Sand Ridge Golf Club, Brian Bates joined his father, Howard Bates who is the owner and president of Arms Trucking. With Brian's background in turf, they felt there was a business to be grown in the turf and landscape market. In 2000, they began supplying bulk materials to golf courses. Materials include bunker sand, topdressing sand, topsoil, mulch, and drainage gravel. Now they deliver to over 700 golf courses in the United States and Canada.

In addition to golf courses, Arms Turf supplies athletic institutions with sports field mix such as the Cleveland Browns, Indians, Columbus Clippers, and Cincinnati Reds. We have recently provided construction mix to Ohio State University for the practice football complex and Jesse Owens Soccer Stadium as well as the Dayton Dragons Baseball Team for field renovations.

Arms Turf is the exclusive distributor for Best Sand for Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, and Northern Indiana. Best Sand is one of the best bunker sands available in the country if not the world. A highly angular sand that gives golfers a better chance at hitting out of sand traps.

Bill Easterday has over 22 years in the turf grass industry specializing in bunker, topdressing, and new construction sands. He lives in Dublin Ohio and serves the territory from the Ashland Ohio area south, West Virginia, and Kentucky. Trust Brian Bates and Bill Easterday with all your golf course construction projects and maintenance needs.

In the fall of 2009, Arms purchased the DM Boyd Company located in Volant, PA, which has been well known in the turf grass industry for years. Wendell Boyd continues to run the plant, and with his knowledge and years of expertise, Arms Turf now has a presence not only in Pennsylvania but in New York as well.

Terri Parr can handle all your customer service and sales needs. Terri previously worked at Best Sand for 11 years dealing with many of the same customers. She provides the quality and experience needed to process our customers orders efficiently.

Our team at Arms Turf Products has the knowledge and years of experience to provide quality products and service to meet all your turf and landscape needs.
