Kari Haug
Creating a Cultural Shift in Golf

While living and studying golf course architecture in Scotland, Kari traveled throughout the UK studying classic golf courses such as Royal Dornoch, North Berwick, Sunningdale, Swinley Forest, and the famed St. Andrews. This experience has helped her form a design philosophy based upon compelling golf strategy, playability for all skill levels, community connectivity, water and resource conservation, and a respect for the history and natural beauty of the land. Kari formerly served on the Board of Directors for the Minnesota Women’s Public Golf Association, and the First Tee of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Ms. Haug is committed to eco-sensitive and sustainable golf course design and the improvement of course playability for women and seniors. A former collegiate golfer and a talented designer, Kari is able to envision sound golf strategy from tee to green. With use of models and hand drawings, along with Photoshop, PowerPoint, and VectorWorks renderings, Kari is able to help clients visualize proposed designs and bring their projects to life. She is an associate member of the European Institute of Golf Course Architects (EIGCA), and one of the very few female golf course architects in the world.
