Our Story

GDB Excavations & Landscaping is founded by Scott Dowdle born and raised in rural NSW where he gained a passion for working in the outdoor environment.

Commencing a career in bowling green management on the NSW Far South Coast, Scott spent 20 years in golf course construction, design and maintenance in QLD which included working alongside Jack Nicklaus and Carrie Webb design teams.  Over this time, he built his reputation and skills achieving the number one golf course in Australia at Turtle Point at Laguna Quays in 2006.  He also designed and constructed the 18-hole golf course on Dunk Island in Far North QLD.

Returning to NSW in 2009 Scott combined his skills in golf course construction with his passion for the natural environment to build a business focused on quality outcomes and a willingness to take on challenging and complex project designs.

Today, Scott and his team are committed to making sure that every GDB construction project is completed to not only meet client needs and fit aesthetically with its surrounds, but to also minimize environmental impact and maintain each sites natural integrity.


GDB works with government organisations, commercial entities, developers and private residents located in both urban and rural areas and we have recently relocated from the NSW Far South Coast to the Albury/Wodonga area.  With over 30 years’ experience in construction and project management of a range of hard and soft landscapes, GDB has the experience and professionalism that you can trust in ensuring quality outcomes.
