You can accomplish this by using Exchange Management Shell...

New-GlobalAddressList -Name "Name Here" -IncludedRecipients MailboxUsers

That is correct. If the old one is corrupt you can use the Remove-GlobalAddressList to remove the corrupt Gal and then use the above command to create the new one.

If users are using cached mode for Outlook they may not see the new GAL right away.

Sorry I didn't get the update for some reason. You can simply create the new GAL set it as default then remove the old one.
