Kim Haddow – A Coach, A Friend by Kristie Fowler
I first got to know Kim when she was the Women’s Golf Coach at the University of Arizona. I have a lot of great memories of my college golf days; some of “what happens on the road, stays on the road”. Kim developed teams with not only good student-athletes but good people as well. That’s probably why so many of the players are still friends today after nearly thirty years. Kim has a great deal to be proud of after accomplishing so many career and personal goals. It’s my honor to introduce you to Kim Haddow; my coach for a while, my friend for life.
Kim Haddow of Prescott, Arizona has been the Head Men’s and Women’s Golf Coach at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University since 2011. Not only is the team improving its golf scores, the academics are pretty darn outstanding!
