Hall of Fame golf course architect Pete Dye will unveil his latest masterpiece in Guatemala later this month, in the ancient colonial town of Antigua, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The golf course has been named “Fuego Maya,” or Mayan Fire, and will be the centerpiece of the new upscale residential resort community known as La Reunion.
The 18-hole course was carved alongside the base of the active volcano named Fuego (Fire). It offers the golfer inspiring views of three other volcanoes, plus the Pacific Ocean in the distance. “Fuego Maya” will play to a par 72 and 7,302 yards, and feature challenging carries over deep canyons, signature Dye bunkering and subtle green complexes.
La Reunion comprises 1,384 acres; when fully complete, it will include 950 units between private lots, villas and residences. The project will also include 26 golf course casitas, a luxury hotel, a boutique eco-hotel, a spa, observatory and a cultural center.
