Directors of Architecture

Andrew Haggar


Andrew has more than 20 years’ experience in more than 20 different countries throughout Europe, the Caribbean, Asia and Africa, working for three international golf course design firms in that span. As a lead architect he has undertaken projects ranging from sensitive remodelling work on old and traditional golf courses to resort master planning, and the design of Championship golf courses. Clients have included private clubs, major development groups and owner/operators with extensive course portfolios.
