GCA believes that the game of golf should be equally
enjoyed by all players, regardless of their golfing abilities. To this
end, a GCA-designed championship golf course will challenge and reward
every player's skill without frustrating the average player. The greater a
player's ability and imagination, the greater the number of shot options that
will be made available to him or her and the greater the potential for a
rewarding round of golf.
GCA is highly experienced in the development of
golf courses integrated into residential housing developments. Working
within the developer's requirements, GCA works to maximize lot development
without sacrificing the playability or originality of the golf course.
Furthermore, GCA golf courses will increase the value of golf course lots to a
greater extent than any other recreational amenity.
The Design Approach
During the construction phase, GCA
representatives take on an active role in the implementation of the Construction
Planning. The high standard of our Construction Planning and Specifications
Package is further enhanced on site by the imagination and dedication of GCA's
golf course construction co-ordinators - the people who, in association with the
golf course architect, work to ensure that the golf course is built according to
the plans and specifications. By co-ordinating the combined efforts of the
client, GCA staff and the Golf Course Construction Contractor, the finished golf
course will often exceed initial expectations.
By maximising the potential of the proposed golf course site and by providing an all-inclusive project budget, GCA ensures that its clients spend only what is required to achieve the desired product.
A comprehensive set of Construction Plans accompanied by a detailed Construction Specifications Package allows potential Golf Course Construction Contractors to bid on all proposed works with great accuracy. This minimizes the need for "extras" during the construction process and aids in completing the project on schedule.
During the construction contract negotiation process, GCA can supply a list of experienced golf course construction contractors for the client's consideration. Furthermore, GCA will, if requested, advise the client and/or participate in contract negotiations with the potential Golf Course Construction Contractor thus allowing the client to fully benefit from our expertise in this field.
During both the design and the construction
process, GCA takes into consideration the future maintenance needs of the course
and minimises the incorporation of high-maintenance areas into the design.
This practice can dramatically reduce annual maintenance costs for a golf
