course is located twenty minutes from Resort Martino near the town of
Santa Ana, and is part of a golf course community being developed by
the Brazilian company Habitasul. The property and golf course were initially
developed by a North American in the late seventies. The course was
never opened to the public and the owner and his friends were the only
ones to play there. (Sort of a poor mans Steve Wynn with his exclusive
Saddle Creek course in Las Vegas.) With this in mind, it is not difficult
to understand why the gringo ran out of money before the project was
completed and returned north a wiser but poorer individual.
In 1994, Habitasul brought in golf course architect Tracy May to re-design
and build a new course. The results achieved by May are outstanding
and we are halfway to a great 18 hole golf course. May, with the assistance
of the on-site construction supervisor Mark Dinan, has designed the
layout to be challenging and fair under most conditions, and downright
tough when the winds come swirling down from the surrounding mountains.
