Jurrian is a Dutch golf professional that currently plays on a professional tour in the United States. He started playing golf when he was eight at a small club in the eastern part of the Netherlands, where he met Frank Pont in 2006 when Frank was hired to lead a number of course renovations.
Jurrian completed his degree in Environmental Science from Virginia Tech in 2008, with the focus on golf course management, land resources and soil chemistry. Having played years of amateur golf throughout Europe, college golf in the US and multiple seasons on the European Challenge Tour all over the globe, he has competed on a large variety of golf courses, grasses and climates.
The combination of being a talented golfer, environmentally focused student and having a good understanding of golf course architecture makes him a valuable asset for Frank Pont.
Through their collaboration they both aim to improve the quality of courses being built, making them more playable, sustainable and profitable.
