President CRDX Golf
Todd Jester began his career in the golf industry in the late 1980s on the ground floor, working golf course maintenance during college summers under the toolage of Palmer Maples. While working with Palmer, Todd earned a business degree from the University of Mississippi and then a landscape architecture degree from Mississippi State University. Following graduation in the early 1990’s, Todd was hired by Paragon Golf Construction, a Jack Nicklaus owned company, holding various positions from site coordinator, project manager, to project superintendent. After eight years of construction experience, Todd was invited to become part of the in-house Nicklaus Golf Design team as an architectural design associate and lead architectural field supervisor. His outstanding design work did not go unnoticed, as Jerry Pate Design hired Todd as Senior Design Associate and Construction Manager. In 2003, Todd left Pate Design and started Jester Golf Design. Todd successfully ran Jester Golf Design for 19 years and in 2017 became a golf course owner in Franklin, TN. In 2022 Todd was named President of the Credex Golf division.
