From the Heart: Our Founders' Story

Golden Golf Services was founded in honor of my husband, Walter Shirey, with whom I built a successful commercial landscaping business in Southwest Florida. Walt founded the original businesses with a love of golf, landscaping, and a passion for people. His original companies originated from his expertise about something he enjoyed. His values remain our focus, always staying true to doing the right thing for our clients, employees, and customers.

Since the loss of Walt to cancer in 2017, Golden Golf Services has been committed to keeping his mission alive with a team focused on honesty and excellence that is unmatched. We provide exceptional customer service and affordability, and we take great pride in the way that we care about our customers and guaranteeing their satisfaction.

Walt’s legacy and his passion for providing quality will continue to thrive in our company. With longevity in the marketplace and expertise in commercial landscaping, we stand ready to serve you.

Walt Shirey

Walt received a degree in Business Administration from Palm Beach Atlantic University. An expert in landscape design and annuals, Walt is the “original installer” specializing in pine straw, mulch, and annuals for many years in Southwest Florida. His passion for the golf course industry included strong support for all golf course organizations in the state of Florida. Walt was a visionary. A strong-willed man, amazing in all aspects of his life. He saw the way a golf course should be presented and brought those ideas to life.
