Jay Blasi Honored by University of Wisconsin-Madison Alumni Association

(Los Gatos, CA) – Jay Blasi, a rising name in the world of golf course architecture, is one of only nine graduates of the University of Wisconsin-Madison to receive the coveted “Forward Under 40 Award” for 2015.  This award, presented by the Wisconsin Alumni Association, recognizes past students who are making a difference to the world through their chosen career paths.

Best known for his work as RTJ II Project Architect at Chambers Bay in University Place, Washington, site of the 2015 U.S. Open, Blasi is one of the youngest architects ever to contribute to a U.S. Open course.  Chambers Bay has been ranked as the #1 municipal golf course in the U.S. and is currently rated by Golf Digest as one of America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses (at #26).

Blasi graduated from UW-Madison in 2000 with a degree in Landscape Architecture and immediately began his career when he accepted a position with world-renowned golf course architecture firm, Robert Trent Jones II, LLC.  In 2012, Blasi launched his own design firm, Jay Blasi Design, which is headquartered in Los Gatos, CA.

“I am honored to receive the ‘Forward Under 40 Award’ from my alma mater, said Blasi.  “My years at UW-Madison gave me the foundation necessary to go after what I wanted most in life and that was a career in golf course architecture.  I am living my dream every single day.”
