Jay Blasi BS’00 Landscape Architecture • Jay Blasi started doodling golf course designs on placemats when he was eight years old. He began researching the field in high school, and since enrolling in the landscape architecture program at CALS, he hasn’t looked back. He now runs Jay Blasi Design, a golf architecture firm dedicated to creating, restoring or renovating courses. One of his greatest accomplishments was being part of the team that designed the Chambers Bay course in Washington state, which will host the U.S. Open in 2015. He is one of the youngest contributing golf architects to design a U.S. Open course, a dream of his since high school. To top it off, Jay and his wife, Amy, who met while working on the project, were married a few years ago on the 15th hole.
