Josh Grubaugh is a Tucson native with 12 years of experience in the agriculture industry. His passion for the game of golf and the desire to spend as much time as possible on the course led to the start of his career. In 2006, Josh began working at Oro Valley Country Club. There, he acquired the basics of landscape and turf management. He also earned his Arizona Pesticide Applicator license. He quickly realized that not only did he have a knack for keeping vegetation alive in Arizona heat, he was also really loving the work that went into it!
Just a year into this career path, Josh took full advantage of an opportunity to help build the Golf Club at Dove Mountain, former home of the PGA Tour’s WGC Accenture Match-Play Championship. This amazing 6-year experience gave him the drive to advance on to The Views Golf Club at Oro Valley, where he became the Assistant Golf Course Superintendent. This was a game changer for Josh as his growing passion for and knowledge of turfgrass management further solidified that this was his calling.
With his skills and experience, Josh advanced onward to Tucson Country Club as the Assistant Golf Course Superintendent. Within two years he accepted the position of Golf Course Superintendent at Forty Niner Country Club. Shortly after joining the Forty Niner family, Josh and Brandy married and within a year were proud parents of their first child, Tripp Joshua Grubaugh. Things were getting real!
Josh had a very successful tenure at Forty Niner Country Club. His extensive knowledge and attention to detail allowed him to complete many in-depth landscape and irrigation projects, which improved the operation of the course. Some have even said he brought it back from the dead! Josh will tell you, he is only as good as his team. His hard work, respect for others and willingness to think outside of the box were, and continue to be, essential to his success. In early 2018, Josh knew there was something bigger for him and his growing family. With the support and encouragement of his wife, Brandy, he decided to take his knowledge, skills, and passion in another direction. This led to the launch of Poppy Yard Solutions. The company was named after his daughter, Poppy Louise.
