Casa Verde Golf announced it has hired Art Schaupeter as vice president. Schaupeter will oversee projects for the boutique golf course construction and construction management company. Casa Verde Golf will utilize Schaupeter’s knowledge to help manage renovation projects, liaise with architects and brainstorm solutions for clients.
An ASGCA member, Schaupeter has more than 30 years of golf course architecture experience. He began his career working alongside golf course architect Keith Foster as an apprentice and draftsman. Together the two completed several courses, including Buffalo Run, The Bandit, Gateway National, Haymaker and Persimmon Woods. In 1998, he started Arthur Schaupeter Golf Course Architects and has been involved in creating or renovating more than 100 golf courses across the country. Schaupeter designs include TPC Colorado in Berthoud, Colorado; The Highlands of Elgin in Elgin, Illinois; The Club at Old Hawthorne in Columbia, Missouri; and Highland Meadows in Windsor, Colorado.
“Art brings tremendous talent, a passion for great architecture and a keen eye for detail to the Casa Verde Golf team,” Troon executive vice president Phil Green said. “His knowledge of golf course architecture and construction along with his experience in designing many award-winning layouts will be an incredible resource to Casa Verde Golf clients.”
Schaupeter graduated with a degree in environmental design from the University of Colorado. He believes in creating diverse, multi-optional holes that do not dictate the play to the golfers and instead, building holes with a variety of playing options. This philosophy puts golfers in a positive mindset, allowing them to enjoy their golf experience.
Scottsdale-based Casa Verde Golf is a Troon Company that specializes in golf course construction and renovation projects of all sizes. Casa Verde Golf is a firm focused on golf course construction and renovation projects across the country with a concentration in the Southwest.
