Career summary

Jeremy has been involved in the golf course business since 1976. In that time, he has worked throughout Europe, the United States and Africa.

Prior to graduating from Michigan State University with a degree in Turf Management, Jeremy spent time as a Course Manager in the UK. After graduation, he worked for the design company of Robert Trent Jones Sr., first as a construction manager, following which he became a Design Associate and Projects Coordinator. Based predominantly in the US, Jeremy was involved in the largest single golf course design project in history – the Alabama State Retirement Fund commissioned Robert Trent Jones to design and construct 18 golf courses under one contract.

During his time with the company, Jeremy was also responsible for the management of the European office, which had eleven projects under design and construction. In addition to a design role, his specialisation became construction management and logistics.

In 1994, Jeremy joined European Golf Design, becoming Managing Director in 1996. The company, a joint venture between IMG and The European Tour, are currently working on projects in many diverse locations around the World, from the Caribbean to Russia and from Finland to South Africa. European Golf Design is working for clients ranging from major hotel groups such as Whitbread Hotels, to development groups like the Benetton Family and the Myramar Group in Spain. Other clients have included the Croatian Tourist Board, Epirito Santos Bank, First National Bank and PGA European Tour Courses

plc.


In addition to overseeing the successful day-to-day operation of the Company, his specific responsibilities include meeting with potential clients, assisting in the initial analysis of projects and then overseeing the Company’s services to each of its clients. Given the wide geographic range of the Company’s business and the equally wide range of clients for whom the Company is working, Jeremy is acutely aware of current trends as they relate to golf resort development, together with the technical, financial and practical issues that result.
