PUERTO VALLARTA, MEXICO – Pizá Golf, recognized internationally for their innovative approach to golf course architecture which blends traditional British fundamentals with contemporary innovative designs from North America – proudly announces that Founder and Director Agustin Pizá has been included in the prestigious Golf Inc. Power 2020 issue. The annual fall issue that focuses on the most powerful people in the golf business.
Within this highly sought after Power 2020 issue, is the “Golf’s up and Coming Superstars” feature written by JJ Keegan. This section is dedicated to “a new generation of leaders moving up in the ranks and bringing with it signs of a more diverse future.”
“I am speechless about this honour. I have a huge feeling of personal satisfaction for me and my team. To know we’re headed into the right direction with our concepts, artistic expression and design philosophy is gratifying. This mention makes us feel more responsible than ever with our commitment to pushing creative and strategic boundaries,” said Pizá.
According to Keegan, “Agustin Pizá sees the Earth the way Monet and Van Gogh saw a canvas. His brush strokes are inspired by a vision that embraces the spirit of the land, emphasizing aesthetics, character, and strategy.”
For years, Pizá Golf has been designing and developing golf courses that push the industry norms and the risks they have taken are being rewarded. Last month the Itanhangá Golf Club renovation was nominated as the best golf course in Brazil by the World Golf Awards and his Wellness Golf concept was showcased by the USGA at their innovative symposium in Japan 2019.
“Lastly, this Power 2020 issue is filled with people I admire and have known throughout my career and it’s a privilege to be in the same issue. My mentor – Jack Nicklaus, Golden Bear, my friends; David Pillsbury, Club Corp, Jay Monahan, PGA Tour Commissioner, and my colleague – Gil Hanse. I congratulate each of you for your extraordinary and ongoing success,” added Pizá.
