Worldwide Golf Resources Inc. announced that it has signed a letter of intent to acquire GA-based American Turf Manufacturing, a leading supplier of synthetic turf to the golf industry. Kenneth Maul, Worldwide CEO said the stock-for-stock agreement should be completed by December 15. Maul noted that the acquisition would complement Worldwide's recent acquisition of Golf Auto Tee Inc., a supplier of golf ball teeing machines.

In return, Golf Auto Tee will introduce American Turf to its client base" (Worldwide Golf Resources).
