ABOUT BAYCO – HISTORY AND MISSION
Get on course with Bayco!
Whether you are building a home practice greens or an 18 hole resort course, Bayco has you covered!
Bayco Golf started out unlike the typical business. The founder, Alex Colonelo, came from a mechanical toolmaker background. He started working at a company called Bay Bronze Industries which manufactured fuel fittings and plumbing parts as well as bronze signs and plaques. His passion for golf and his experience in manufacturing inspired him to start a golf course accessories division within Bay Bronze in 1986 (renamed to Colon Industries at this time). In 1998, he bought off the golf division and named the company Bayco Golf Inc where he became a president. He retired in 2006 when OSC Seeds purchased Bayco Golf and a new general manager, Cal Surgenor, was appointed. Cal has guided the continuing growing processof Bayco for over 15 years.
Bayco Golf has always strived to bring the best quality of products to the golf course accessory market. With our knowledgeable team and many years of experience, you can remove all uncertainty with anything related to your course. We build meaningful relationships with clients that last a lifetime. We pride ourselves that almost all of our products are manufactured locally in North America. We are a forward thinking, market improving company that has set the bar for numerous products, including Dye Sublimated Custom Flags, Pro Hole Cups with Liner and Locking Ferrule, ColorFlex Distance Markers, the Mully Cup Lifter, our newly designed InstaFix Ball Mark Repair Tool, and so much more.
