LAKE OF THE OZARKS – As work on the lake’s newest attraction continues, local companies have been selected to provide vital field and facility grounds keeping and technical support for Ballparks of the Ozarks.

TurfMark president Mark Mathews says he is dedicated to providing the best playing surfaces possible. “We will draw on our expertise to deliver exceptional surfaces that will enhance the Ballparks experience,” Mathews said. “We are committed to this project and appreciate the confidence placed in our company by BPO ownership.”Bob Ramsey, Ballparks COO, says one of the keys to success will be providing the very best youth playing conditions in the country. “TurfMark will allow us to realize that goal. Their experience sets the industry standard and their commitment to excellence will allow us to exceed it,” Ramsey said.

Jeremy Kee of Kee IT Solutions is looking forward to building technical infrastructure at the park. “This state-of-the-art ballpark deserves state-of-the-art technology and we are going to provide that service,” Kee said.
