Mr. Bradford Benz; San Jose, CA

Developer and Owner, Pat Butler hired golf course designer Bradford Benz from San Jose, CA. Part of our criteria was for the golf course design to be in harmony with the natural environment. The site dictated to the greatest extent possible the design solution, rather than imposing a predetermined style of architecture upon the landscape which resulted in a more beautiful, more economically maintainable and more technically functional facility. For instance, plants that absolutely had to be removed were not run down by a bull dozer, but instead dug up and transferred to a nursery. Further we were highly selective in our selection of any plants that are introduced to make certain that we don't over run or out compete the indigenous species.

Another special element in the "Faces of Mexico" course is it utilizes salt-tolerant turf and plants, known as halophytes, which will utilize seawater irrigation. Our fairways, greens and ornamental landscape plants are all from the halophyte plant family, which greatly reduces our need to utilize fresh water to maintain our golf course. San Felipe averages less than 3 inches of rain per year and water is very precious. By utilizing salt tolerant grass and plants, we are able to tap into previously "unusable water" in wells that are too high in salt content to be of any human or agricultural use. This is very much in keeping with the owner’s interest in sustainable community development.

The Faces of Mexico golf course will eventually become a private course when the additional 18 holes are added on the West side of Highway 5. Only residents and hotel guests will play the seaside course when the mountain course is completed.
