Pizá Golf, internationally recognized as a world-class architecture and golf course design firm, has proudly announced that the company’s founder Agustin Pizá has joined forces with PGA TOUR Champion, television personality, and Golf Channel Analyst – Brandel Chamblee.

The partnership will expand the Pizá Golf Branded Collection and their signature Pizá Chamblee golf designs will be made available on select projects.

“Brandel brings to our partnership an acute understanding of golf course playability. As a former PGA TOUR Professional, he appreciates a golf course from a player’s standpoint but as an analyst his intellect provides some profound and unique insight. His perceptiveness will challenge me to become a better architect and I am up for that challenge. I am humbled and honoured to partner with such a gentleman, intellectual, analyst, arts and wine connoisseur who will ask for the best of me,” commented Agustin Pizá.

“Agustin Pizá or ‘Augie’ is a man with a strong vision striving in his design philosophy to create golf courses and golf experiences that will thrill the enthusiast and activist alike, while offering to those without a traditional golf background an intro into the game. His (4×6) design project in Desertica is just one example of his creative ingenuity and desire to give more than just lip service to the idea that a round of golf is becoming too time consuming and unsustainable ecologically.

“I have followed ‘Augie’ on social media for years and as I’ve become aware of his design philosophy, his keen understanding of past and present architectural principles and his interest in helping underprivileged kids discover golf in Mexico and South America through the First Tee and other like projects I was very humbled when Augie extended an invitation to join his team,” said Brandel Chamblee.

The first Pizá Chamblee signature design pushes the creative boundaries of multi-purpose golf. The duo is collaborating on a 24-hole golf resort with four distinct six-hole golf loops. The project is referred to as the “Butterfly Effect.” It is in Cuatro Cíenegas, Desertica described as an oasis in the desert with abundant springs that create marshes. Ground-breaking is estimated in Summer of 2022.
