Golden Age Golf Architecture (GAGA) specialises in golf course design and related master planning, site analysis and physical feasibility analysis.
The GAGA studio is especially focused on design solutions in challenging, often arid, coastal or wetland, climates and is noted for combining innovation with classicism to create beautiful golf courses that are ecologically, commercially and operationally pioneering, responsible and successful.
