Mike Shanks – Owner / Fabricator

Mike started in the golf business in 1978, working on the grounds crew at the local country club. In 1985 he graduated from Oklahoma State University with a degree in Turfgrass Science. For the next 20 years, he specialized in construction and maintenance of golf courses, learning many “tricks of the trade” from day to day experience. During construction projects, he found out that an ATV would just not fit his needs, so in 1988 built his first lifted golf cart. From there, his hobby turned into a full time job and in 2004 officially opened MikesMotorToys as a Factory EZGO dealership




Cliff Hukill – Mechanic

Cliff joined our team in 2015.  Cliff had worked with Mike in the golf industry as a golf course mechanic since 1999.  On occasion, he helped out during busy times at the shop, but came on full time years ago.  Cliff started in the golf industry in 1989 and a golf course maintenance mechanic.  He brings a wide variety of knowledge to our business in dealing with machinery.
