Experience drawn over many years from a multitude of design commissions in a range of countries, cultures and climates has given the company a unique foundation upon which it has built its success.

Since those early days, and largely driven by clients’ needs, GBD has expanded its offering to encompass a full suite of consultancy services related to golf course design, from site selection and approvals through to design and delivery via project management or construction management.
