â€śWhen countries go into funks like this, things slow down — fuel comes in slowly, parts for bulldozers come in slowly. It’s sometimes aggravating, but working on an island in a foreign country, you learn to expect it. We are focused on building the golf course and creating a vibrant community that helps to enhance tourism to Roatan.â€ť Says Perry Dye who is heading up the project.
â€śThe island is not as effected by what is occurring in Tegucigalpa. My guys think this thing will be over within a week. It’s not really a coup. [Zelaya] wanted to be elected again; he couldn’t be; Congress said no president can defy the constitution; we’re going to move you out. The military’s not in charge; people are not down there shooting each other. There is nothing to be afraid of in Roatan.â€ť
The #11 island green at The Black Pearl has taken shape and was seeded with sprigs of Paspalum, a salt-tolerant grass that allows watering with brackish water- a major environmental plus for the project. This will also allow the course to focus on water management to be as low impact as possible.
The island boasts the worldâ€™s second largest Barrier reef, and is already a must-visit for avid divers. With the addition of a world class Pete and Perry Dye golf course and a five star resort, Roatan is sure to become the premier vacation destination in the Caribbean.
