Pete, Perry Dye Designed Black Pearl to Open This Year in Roatan, Honduras
Untitled Document

Pete and Perry Dye’s Black Pearl Golf Course is scheduled to open later this year at Pristine Bay Resort, a 400+ acre luxury development on Roatan Island sure to wow with a five-star hotel, villas, custom homes, a beach club and deep water marina.
  Roatan is one of the Bay Islands (there are three), located 30 miles offshore of mainland Honduras. Black Pearl is situated on the island’s barrier reef north side, and is being built snug against the azure waters of this unsung tropical hideaway.
  It will feature one of Dye’s signature island greens, and 14 of the 18 holes will treat golfers to stunning views of the Caribbean and the Meso-American reef flanking Roatan (the second largest in the world).
  The course starts at the ocean’s doorstep, trapezes into the rolling, trademark foothills of Roatan, and then takes golfers on a wild ride home back toward the seaside clubhouse. Black Pearl will be a “resort” course, according to Pristine Bay Resort officials, playing to around 7,000 yards with ample landing areas and gently undulating greens.
  Roatan, the largest (35 miles long, five miles wide) and most developed of the Bay Islands, is home to a handful of “modern” resorts and quaint, boutique inns with all the traditional creature comforts of their U.S. counterparts. Pristine Bay Resort and Black Pearl will be the first on-island golf course and when the hotel opens, will offer the only on-island five-star experience.
  Golf travelers will find it surprisingly easy to get to Roatan. Direct flights are available on Continental from Houston twice a week, Atlanta once a week on Delta and from Miami on Taca airlines. Taca also flies between San Jose and San Francisco and San Pedro Sula, Honduras  (where connector flights to Roatan leave throughout the day).
  Pristine Bay Resort is six miles from the airport, so golfers will be able to tee it up within an hour of landing.
