Pizá Golf’s innovative, boutique, golf designs create a personal lifestyle unlike any other
SAN DIEGO, CA. – November 17, 2020 – Pizá Golf, recognized internationally for their innovative approach to golf course architecture which blends traditional British fundamentals with contemporary innovative designs from North America – is proud to announce that the company’s private collection continues to gain awareness and grow as the golf industry experiences a resurgence to the game.
“Our high profile clients want the best of what life can offer and that includes our functional grass sculptures. Outdoor, magnificent, multipurpose grass facilities. Complexes that can be shared with family and friends to connect with nature, socialize, play or hone in on their short game skills. Golfers, even non-golfers, can play and have fun together,” commented, Pizá.
In 2020, this award winning design captured the world’s attention with its innovative, private, practice facility called, “The Pit” -- coined after the central, revetted bunker. It is a ‘golf lounge’ practice area on the grounds of a client’s private estate. This prestigious project and its concept expanded the company and its offerings to include its private collection of golf designs.
“I know that the client had a regular putting and chipping green in mind but I don’t do regular things,” said Pizá. “Their level of trust allowed me to push my creativity and produce what I like to call a multipurpose grass sculpture.”
The flagship, “The Pit” is located in the heart of Mexico City which is a concrete jungle and the metamorphosis is extraordinary and can be done anywhere with a smaller footprint. The golf facility has five tee boxes that span up to 80 yards in distance which are positioned to reach one segmented, free form green. For different levels of play there are multiple flag positions and hazards. There are distinct shot values and angles so the quality of golf is genuine within the serene environment. It can be challenging or a relaxing experience.
“The central bunker at ‘The Pit’ is key to the entire composition as during the day you can practice all kinds of sand shots. It is a multipurpose area – family and friends can enjoy practicing shots from 80 yards in or the kids can play in the sandbox or roll around on the grass. In the evening, turn on the lights, music and the fire pit. Just lounge. What an experience! What a lifestyle!” added Pizá.
This never before seen Pizá Golf design concept is replicable and flexible, in order to adapt to its surroundings. In addition to private estate usages, this concept can be used for hotels, club houses, and restaurants.
Pizá Golf and its goal is to create the best and most original private home design for a high-profile client. They execute the design and deliver a turn-key operation to the client through supervision, quality control and project management services. The grass sculpture by Pizá Golf provides a great sense of pride and ownership as guests enjoy a game of golf, individual wellness, socializing and a touch of night life.
