Dye Designs recently broke ground on a new project just outside of San Salvador, El Salvador near the small town of Zaragosa. This American style golf and country club, just 7 miles from the ocean, will attract tourists from the U.S. and Central America.
“This project will have it all,” says Perry, co-architect, along with his father Pete. “The best feature is the cool ocean breeze, which doesn’t exist in town. The weather is gorgeous year round, and the ocean and some of the best surfing in Central America is down a hill just a few miles from the project. This is our 3rd course in Central America in the past few years and should be just as good as Fuego Maya (Guatemala) and the Black Pearl (Honduras)!”
There have been several trips made to El Salvador. The team has been working on hand- clearing coffee trees. The wood from the trees will be recycled by the locals and used for heating, cooking and furniture.Â Construction is expected to take two years and we look forward to opening in the fall of 2013.
