Fuego Maya Golf Course at La Reunion Resort is the first project for Pete Dye and son Perry in Central America, and it may be one of their most interesting, scenic and challenging. Built on the side of the Fuego volcano, Fuego Maya (which means Mayan Fire in Spanish) features steep slopes with terrific scenery of the mountains and resort. On a clear day, the top of Fuego is visible from almost everywhere on the golf course.
With the recent opening of the Fuego Maya Golf Course at La Reunion Resort, Guatemala's golf quotient has probably, at minimum, quadrupled. This is the first golf resort in this country of 13 million people, and the owners spared no expense.
When the investors in La Reunion Resort were looking for someone to carve out a course on the side of the Fuego volcano, it was a short list. They wound up going with Pete Dye and son Perry, which pretty much meant the golf course here would not only be beautiful and imaginative, but fairly challenging as well. Perry Dye says he and his father are "very proud" of Fuego Maya Golf Course at La Reunion Resort and believe that it will be recognized as one of the great courses of the world.
