Frank Pont, founder of Infinite Variety Golf Design, has joined up with Mike DeVries to form a trans-Atlantic partnership to provide clients with unparalleled expertise and experience in golf course architecture to create new golf course design projects and restore classic courses throughout the UK, Europe, and North America.
Following a successful career in consulting and investment banking, Pont has spent the last 15 years becoming one of Europe's leading course designers and experts on restorations. In addition to his work on Colt, Alison, Simpson, Arana, and Pennink designs, he has also created several highly acclaimed new course designs in his home country of the Netherlands, including De Swinkelsche, which is ranked in the top 10.
He is currently working with 15 classic golf clubs listed on Golf World's English and European Top 100. The clubs where he has been working on extensive restorations, such as De Pan (#26 to #3), Hardelot (#98 to #27), Royal Hague (#19 to #6), and Eindhoven (#81 to #33), have all made spectacular improvements in the course rankings in recent years. No other architectural firm in Europe has delivered similar results in such a consistent manner.
"Our partnership is great news, first and foremost for our clients who will benefit from even better and more complete services, but as importantly for ourselves in that Mike and I will be able to have even more fun working together on great projects," says Pont. "It will follow the example of Colt and Alison who had a similar trans-Atlantic partnership during the Golden Age of Golf. I am convinced our partnership will be a game changer in the global arena of golf course architecture that others will find hard to emulate."
