In 1991 GSA commenced its Golf Design endeavours through its collaboration with Ron Kirby, world-class Golf Course Architect and former Senior Designer with Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus. GSA-Kirby team first designed the Pescara Golf & Country Club in Miglianico, Italy. Their joint endeavours extended to other areas of Italy, including Modena, Ferrara, Faenza and Verona, as well as overseas, encompassing such projects as Waterville Links, Dromoland Castle and Old Head, located in Ireland; Barbados Golf Club in the Caribbean, and Salobre, Meloneras, Puerto del Carmen and Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands. Paolo Gueltrini and Antonio Stignani, associates of GSA, bring their own background, skills and personality to the different phases of the project.
Paolo Gueltrini, EFLA Landscape Architect, will bring his Golf Design experience to the various project phases including preliminary routing, production of detailed design documents, and site supervision.
Antonio Stignani, also EFLA Landscape Architect, will assess and contribute to the planning and environmental issues and components of the project, setting the guidelines and correct approach with the local administrations and urban planners. In 2008, GSA was appointed the European Branch of Bates Golf Design Group Firm in collaboration with Ron Kirby. The target of this unique team of design professionals is to administer golf course design and construction supervision services spanning from North and Eastern Europe to North Africa.
