Jeff's leadership spans all aspets of Casa Verde Golf, including: project planning, construction oversight, company growth intiatives and client communications. In the time since Jeff assumed his current role in June of 2016, he has directed planning and construction efforts on more than 20 projects throughout North America.
Jeff graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in History and Landscape Architecture, then pursued a master’s degree in Golf Course Architecture from Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland. After earning his graduate degree, Jeff was hired by Wadsworth Golf Construction where he performed a myriad of duties beginning with field work, which eventually led to various on-site supervisory roles on nine new build projects and four full-scale renovations. From there, he was promoted to estimating and purchasing where he participated in the estimating of more than 90 golf course projects nationwide of various sizes in scope. He then went to work for the PGA Tour, specifically to project-manage the major renovation of the golf course and clubhouse at TPC Potomac, a premier property within the TPC network. Following the completion of the project, the venue has hosted the Champions Tour’s Constellation Open in 2010 and was selected by Tiger Woods to host his annual Quicken Loans National tournament in 2018, and was most recently selected to host the PGA Tour's Wells Fargo Championship in 2021. Jeff then relocated to China to oversee the development of multiple golf course projects throughout the country. During his four years living in China, he was involved in three large-scale golf course development projects as a daily on-site project manager, and another three projects in the capacity of Senior Project Manager.
Upon Jeff’s return stateside, he was recruited to manage the construction of the golf course and other auxiliary structures and infrastructure for Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas, Texas. He spent two years onsite managing the construction of this prestigious project. Despite all the regulatory obstacles, major environmental sensitivities, and record flooding, the golf course opened on time in the fall of 2016. In 2018, Trinity Forest Golf Club became the permanent home of the PGA Tour’s AT&T Byron Nelson tournament.
