This new short course is recognized by the Pitch and Putt Federation and will be featured on the International Circuit
“I want to thank Club Regatas for placing their trust in us and particularly golf committee director Alvaro Dammert who played a key role in the success of this short game facility,” said Agustin (Augie) Pizá, Founder of Pizá Golf
Club Regatas commissioned Pizá Golf to design a Pitch and Putt short course based on an official set of distances and rules to have the International Pitch and Putt Federation recognize the short course on the International Circuit. In addition, #multipurposegolf and #wellnessgolf needed to be an integral part of the design to enhance the welfare of Club Regatas and to grow the game of golf in Peru.
“This is the first time an official pitch and putt golf course has been recognized in the country. We are so proud to be a part of golf history in Peru,” said Pizá. “Peru will host annual international competitions and in fact, the club held its first inaugural tournament on December 1, 2023, and I was fortunate enough to participate.”
Forty players participated in the first Pitch and Putt tournament in Peru, including women and men. Twenty of players which were from Chile and the El Regatas and its board represented the remaining twenty which included the club's President, Jaime Cornejo, Vice-President Carlos Ravettino, Treasurer Director Luis Blomberg, Sports Directors José Antonio Tord and Charles Cannok, and Secretary-Director Marita Guinand.
Players and the Federation of International Pitch and Putt Association (FIPPA) were represented by Vice-President Patricio Rubel, as well as the Chilean Pitch and Putt Federation, represented by Vice-President Pablo Caviedes.
“These governing agencies and their dignitaries were pleasantly impressed by the Pitch and Putt design at Club Regatas,” added Pizá. “I am passionate about growing the game of golf globally and I’m thrilled how these influential people plan to use the Pitch and Putt for Peruvians in the future.”
