After Guatemala, Pete Dye and Perry turn their attention to the Black Pearl off the coast of Honduras
With Fuego Maya at La Reunion in Guatemala, Pete Dye and son Perry have completed their first golf course in Central America, but it’s not their last. Some of the partners of La Reunion Golf Resort near Antigua, Guatemala, also are working with the Dyes on another Central American golf course.
This one is called Pristine Bay Resort, and it’s located on the island of Roatan about 35 miles off the coast of Honduras. It includes a golf course, five-star hotel, spa, deep-water marina, beach club and a variety of residential projects.
The golf course, which will be grassed in salt-water resistant paspalum, is called Black Pearl, and it’s scheduled to open in December. Fourteen of the 18 holes on this par-72, 7,057-yard course will have views of the world’s second largest barrier reef, the Meso-American Barrier Reef.
Plans also call for the course to be coupled with a fantastic practice facility so it can host a variety of instructional programs, something that often comes in handy when playing one of Dye’s challenging layouts.
