Robert von Hagge was a Texas architect and the founder and company principal of von Hagge, Smelek and Baril, an international design business that spans the globe and is responsible for work on more than 200 courses. Von Hagge worked on courses as diverse as The Lakes in Australia, Les Bordes and Le Golf National in France and Circolo Golf Bogogno in Italy. Together with his partners, von Hagge's company did good work at many sites but failed to really create a worldwide phenomenon, despite some appealing projects and decent golfing land.
Sadly Mr. von Hagge passed away recently. His company continues to operate.
