Attraction details
Owner description: The centerpiece of the resort is The Black Pearl, Roatan’s first and only golf course. This 18-hole, par-72, 7200 yard championship golf course was created by world famous golf course architect Pete Dye. The course starts at the ocean’s doorstep, rises into the island’s rolling foothills, then takes golfers on a wild ride back to the seaside clubhouse. It features one of Dye’s signature island greens, and 14 holes offer stunning vistas of the ocean and the Meso-American Barrier Reef. The Black Pearl is not only a haven for golfers, but for the vast wildlife on Roatan as well. With more than 100,000 plants and trees, the golf course is one of the largest sanctuaries of plant and animal life on the island. This eco-friendly golf course is one of only a few golf courses in the world to use a special strain of grass called Seashore Paspalum. Dye Designs were pioneers of the use of this salt-water tolerant strand for tropics-based projects, known for its environmental compatibility, ease of irrigation and maintenance, and translucent green hue. Its appearance, juxtaposed against the turquoise Caribbean waters, inspired The Black Pearl’s tagline: “The Best Greens and the Best Blues.” The Black Pearl also features state of the art practice facilities including a lighted driving range, ocean front warm-up range, and a practice chipping green designed to create an atmosphere of game-improvement, one that encourages guests and residents to enhance their skill sets while honing their games on one of the region’s most playable layouts. This is a semi-private course with a myriad of membership options available including temporary resident memberships, corporate and executive memberships, and yearly memberships. The Black Pearl is a world-class golf course that perfectly complements Pristine Bay’s luxury resort and real estate options.

This is a really beautiful gold course. We were here during the off season, so things were extremely quiet - made for a very peaceful Sunday morning. The views off to the ocean on the north were beautifully distracting - maybe that's why my showing was so poor :).

This course was great. We played all 18, it was hot, you can tell it is new and needs to mature, but it is already a gem to us. One word of warning, we had a caddy try to convince us we HAD to use his services at quite a cost. He was helpfull, but we disappointed to find we had been hoodwinked by him!

Superbly conditioned Pete Dye layout. Challenging around the greens, lots of elevation changes and nasty collection areas to catch wayward shots. yes, there is an island green on #11, not quite as nasty as #17 at the TPC Sawgrass (I have played both in the past year). Do take sunscreen and insect repellant, you will need both. The wind can play havoc with your shots. The forecaddie with us was very helpful. We had our cart breakdown suddenly on #14, he ran and got us another very quickly. Price was not bad either.

Tucked away in a gated community of Pristine Bay it was walking distance from our Hotel the Las Verandas. Beautiful ocean views, but a challenging course with the winds, sand bunkers and steep inclines. Very nice beach club with a huge pool..
