Augstin Pascal - General Manager PGA Golf de Catalunya
Oct 11, 2012
Agustín was born in a little town in northern Spain called Santander. His mother and cousins were all avid golfers and won many Spanish amateur events. Agustín started to play golf at the age of three and he also started playing soccer at the same age. He played top level professional soccer in Spain until the age of 24 when, he decided to move to San Diego and attend the San Diego Golf Academy. Agustín graduated from Golf Academy of America - San Diego in August of 1997. While studying at Golf Academy of America, he took a semester off and played Professional Indoor Soccer for the San Diego Sockers.
After graduating, Agustín returned to Spain and started to work for the PGA European Tour Courses, the European version of the TPC in North America. He has been working for this company since 1998, as the General Manager of their Spanish venue, a 36-hole resort which includes a 150 room deluxe hotel and a 450 unit real estate development. Agustín started with the club from its inception and has been running it ever since. During this time, the club has hosted 8 European Tour events. Agustín has also been involved in other European Tour events at different PGA ETC courses throughout Europe. One of the two courses, at PGA Golf de Catalunya, has been recognized as one of the best ten courses in Europe. Agustín is also trying to grow the PGA ETC business in Spain, by acquiring additional clubs and giving existing clubs the opportunity to purchase a license. Among the numerous benefits provided, clubs purchasing a PGA ETC license benefit from association with the brand and have the backing of the PGA ETC organization.
On his time off, Agustín enjoys spending time with his daughter Paula, running or playing golf.
Agustín feels that he wouldn't have had the opportunity to join the PGA European Tour Courses without the education and degree he received from Golf Academy of America - San Diego.
