Tony Grenzy
Faery's Golf and Landscape, Inc.
Niagara SBDC


In the fall of 2014 Tony Grenzy decided to purchase Faery's Golf & Landscape, a business that had employed him for the last ten years. He worked with the Niagara SBDC to help make the purchase possible, and Advisor Dinene Zaleski help Tony develop a funding package. This included hours spent developing the narrative, exploring market opportunities, and analyzing the financial feasibility of the project. The comprehensive loan package included multiple funding partners. Tony has grown Faery's Golf & Landscape into a full service golf course renovation contractor. 

He has an extensive client list that includes regional courses as well as those across New York State and beyond. Services focus on renovation and construction of all golf course features including tee construction, leveling, bunker renovation and construction, irrigation installation and retrofitting, drainage systems, and much more. The company uses specialty equipment, which means little or no disruption to play and as little damage as possible done to the golf course. Tony retained 12 employees at the time of purchase, added 3 soon after, and plans to add 1 to 2 more in 2016. He is excited about his business’ future. When asked about SBDC services, Tony stated:
 “Dinene was a pleasure to work with. Without her we would not be to the point we are at now.”
