Wellness Golf welcomes golf enthusiasts and beginners to approach this ‘game of life’ with a sense of relaxation and appreciation
SAN DIEGO, CA. – January 13, 2021 – Pizá Golf, internationally recognized as a world-class architecture and golf course design firm, is proud to announce that the company was the first to design a golf course aimed at “Wellness.” The concept was to create a unique space in which guests can connect with the natural elements while they play one of the best and most unique golf complexes in the world.
The concept of blending the experience of well-being with a multi-purpose golf course, coined, and registered as “Wellness Golf,” captured the Global Future Award and was showcased at the USGA Innovative Symposium in Japan and at MIPIM In Cannes, France. “I would like to thank our client the Chablé Resort for placing their trust in us and being as innovative as us to believe in this never-before seen concept,” said Agustin Pizá, Founder and Director of Pizá Golf.
The highly acclaimed, five-star Chablé Resort encourages its guests to relax in the surrounding of the luxurious lush Mayan forest, the natural landscape for total wellness. It is here where the Pizá Golf team designed the magic of the multi-purpose “Wellness Golf” course and concept.
Pizá Golf, innovators, and industry leaders of multi-purpose golf designs, transformed a five-acre footprint into a grass sculpture for “Wellness Golf” that features nine tee boxes that span up to 200-yards, all which can be played in a variety or multiple ways. Four distinctive greens with two or three pin options flanked by hazards makes the golf course visually stunning but golfers can choose a playing preference, novice or challenging. Golfers can play any format and will be finished in under 90-minutes.
“One golf course. Many ways to play. Avid golfers appreciate the distinct shot values and angles. Non-golfers or beginning players feel welcome, not intimidated, as there are options available for them. Very much like skiing. You can enjoy the triple black diamond slope or go with green or blue runs,” added Pizá.
Another unique aspect of “Wellness Golf” is the actual composition of what Pizá refers to as “the fifth façade” of this grass sculpture. “With everybody flying drones these days, the view from above plays a key role in our design and overall composition,” added Pizá.
“Wellness Golf” encourages well-being, whatever that may be. Some guests go to the golf course for the serenity of the design, the landscape, they mediate. Families and corporations book the golf course repeatedly as it is inclusive, everyone participates, its social. To deepen the golf experience, the resort encourages their guests to play barefoot, and experience earthing. “Wellness Golf” offers something special for everyone.
The “Wellness Golf” concept is property of Pizá Golf and is replicable. For more information, please visit https://pizagolf.com/wellness-golf-chable-a-marvel-of-sustainable-architecture/
