Endeavour Turf Professionals Pty Ltd (ETP-Turf) is pleased to announce the return and re-appointment of Mr. Jim Porter to the full-time role of “Senior Turf Consultant” based in our Melbourne office effective from Monday 16th July 2018.

The majority of that experience was attained during 20 years managing Australia’s leading golf course, The Royal Melbourne Golf Club, currently ranked in the top 15 in the world. Jim has strong communication, rapport building skills and formal qualifications in Agricultural Science that will enable and help him to develop excellent relationships with all of our exisisting and new clients.
Jim is a highly enthusiastic, energetic and knowledgeable person, who in this role will further enhance and develop ETP-Turf’s agronomy solutions based approach to its turf consultancy business. Jim will provide technical support and project development capabilities to turf businesses throughout Victoria, nationally and at times internationally.
ETP-Turf has recently celebrated its twelfth year as one of the leading turf agronomy consultancy businesses in Australia and with this new appointment in addition to its already experienced consultancy staff will be able to continue to offer a true value and innovative business solutions approach to our many and varied clients in Australia.
