Every kind of service necessary to the public good becomes honourable by being necessary. – Albert Schweitzer

Over the years with government-owned golf properties, GGA has gained invaluable knowledge and understanding of serving the public trust. It takes experience, authority and respect to work with a government entity. Our experience brings an understanding that businesses which are responsible to the public trust require additional time and engagement. We observe the rules and procedures under which government officials are called upon to act. And we are mindful that our viewpoint is not the only one that should be heard.


We understand that government agencies and municipalities need time to process information, prefer open and transparent dealings with their staff and citizens and require patience with the public process. Authority is needed in matters that require accurate information, thorough research and the benefit of reliable experience. In the public arena, people question facts and data; having authority enables an expert to confirm the accuracy and openness of the data and the process that is being used. Respect for the people and the process that a review of a city golf course requires is elemental.
