Golf Inc. attributes Pizá and his inclusion in this special issue to his ability to try something different, to INNOVATE

SAN DIEGO, CA. – March 15, 2022 – Pizá Golf, internationally known as a world-class architecture and golf course design firm, announces its founder Agustin (Augie) Pizá has been recognized by Golf Inc. as one of the Nine Most Innovative People in Golf. Golf Inc. is the world’s only magazine for golf course developers, owners, and management company executives.

According to Golf Inc., “If he were an auto manufacturer, Pizá would be recognized for “concept cars” – vehicles that showcase imagination and hint of future possibilities. He’d be the Elon Musk before the Tesla rolled off the assembly line.”


“Wow, to be referred to in the same vein as Elon Musk, is a great honour. However, I do believe that our focus on the future and its possibilities is similar but just in different fields,” said Pizá. “I congratulate everyone included in the Nine Most Innovative People in Golf issue.”

Prior to Pizá being included in the Nine Most Innovative People in Golf, he was included in the prestigious Golf Inc. Power 2020 issue. Within this highly sought-after issue, Pizá was featured as one of Golf’s up and Coming Superstars, written by JJ Keegan.

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.”

“I want to thank Golf Inc. and their staff for their ongoing support. To be recognized by their distinctive team two years in a row is extraordinary. This acknowledgement inspires me to keep pushing creative boundaries,” added Pizá.
