The new “Ranch” Golf Course design was inspired by the company’s Wellness Golf concept
SAN DIEGO, CA. – Pizá Golf, internationally recognized as a world-class architecture and golf course design firm, proudly revealed its inspirational designs for the company’s latest golf course project, known as the “Ranch.” The “Ranch” is a Multi-purpose design that expands upon Wellness Golf at the Chablé Resort but on a larger scale.
Similar, to Wellness Golf, the “Ranch” is developed with the intention of creating an inclusive, multi-use space that promotes health, happiness, and well-being. However, the “Ranch” has more space which allowed the design team to create an inventive and fun 18-hole circuit that mix 3, 9, 12, or 18-holes, all in an area of 25-acres.
“I feel this is one of my most complete designs and epitomizes Multi-purpose Golf. It is strategic, inspirational, artistic, and the par 3s can be penal depending on what format the players choose. I am extremely proud of the ‘Ranch.’ It is quite an accomplishment to design an entertaining 18-hole golf circuit on a 25-acre space that can be played to a 7,000-yard, par 72,” said Agustin Pizá, Founder of Pizá Golf.
The “Ranch” has received high praise, accolades, and awards, most recently from Architecture Press Release. They honored the concept with a Global Future Design Award. “I am thrilled their esteemed group of judges recognized the vision, the beauty and the playability of the ‘Ranch.’ It is an innovative design, and it only seems fitting the concept received the Global Future Design Award,” added Pizá.
The “Ranch” plays in a combination of par-3s, par-4s, and par-5s, preferably in two groups of five, playing back-to-back for safety. The 18-hole circuit consists of four distinct greens which are larger than the average due to the multiple pin placements designed for multiple levels of play. For a higher degree of challenge and approach angles, each green measure at a different height.
Pizá Golf is known for their commitment to sustainability, the cornerstone of Multi-purpose Golf. A concept to produce golf courses with a smaller footprint, making them economically and ecologically sustainable. Less area to maintain or water, and the “Ranch” is no exception. To consume less water and preserve the land’s natural beauty, the design team only expended 10-acres for grass, the remaining 15-acres remain in-tact. “During the creative process, the team decided the ‘Ranch’ should appear like it had always existed on the site,” added Pizá.
The “Ranch” features two contemporary comfort stations, one located to the south and the second on the lake. The circuit is bordered with a golf cart and maintenance path that also serves as a professional dirt bike path. The “Ranch” is a private golf facility positioned on a ranch estate in Mexico and the project is estimated to be finished in Autumn 2022.
