In 2009, he was appointed General Director at Real Golf de Pedreña, a historic club founded in 1928 and was responsible, along with five other historic golf courses, for the creation of what is now the Royal Spanish Golf Federation.
In his most recent position, Agustín García has served as Director of the Seve Ballesteros Foundation, dedicated to promoting the fight and clinical research of brain tumours, preserving the legacy and transmitting the values of its founder, as well as supporting children and young people without resources in the development of their careers in the sport of golf.
Speaking upon the company’s announcement of his new position, Augustin Garcia Pascual, General Manager, Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community, commented: “I am excited to be a part of this wonderful resort, it is an exciting challenge for me, and I am keen to help the company reach new heights. I am eager to meet all the staff and help them excel in the roles that each one of them play in order to drive the team to the next level”
