Jeff has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Geography and a Diploma in Turf Grass Management and has over 35 years of golf course experience. It is this experience as an assistant superintendant, shaper and designer with five different architects before setting up Jeff Howes Golf design that makes his courses unique and sustainable. Jeffs services includes all aspects of golf course architecture from consultancy, initial site analysis, planning and construction supervision of new courses and redesigns.

Examples of Jeff Howes Golf Designs work are the The Heritage G&CC (co-designed with Seve Ballesteros), Ireland, which held the Seve Trophy in September 2007. The 27 hole course,Golf Club Adamstal in Austria was host to the Challenge Tour event twice. The exclusive resort at Fota Island, Ireland, where Jeff redesigned the original 18 holes, hosted the Irish Open in 2001 and 2002 and will host it again in 2014. Fota is now a 27 hole facility thanks to Jeffs third nine design. Jeff Howes Golf design was also involved in the restoration and upgrading of Mount Juliet's (Ireland) greens in preparation of the American Express World Golf Championship 2002 and 2004.
