Casa de Campo (Teeth of the Dog)
It’s been said there’s no greater way to reveal one’s character than a round of golf. When you step up to the tee on one of Casa de Campo Resort and Villas’ three legendary golf courses, you’ll be tested both in skill and mettle.
Designed by the legendary, and World Golf Hall of Fame member, Pete Dye; Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore and The Links have been meticulously carved from the coral shores, craggy mountains, and rolling hills of the Dominican Republic landscape, and offer a one-of-a-kind golf experience. Only at Casa de Campo can you play a different course each day at the same resort, with three completely different experiences.
While the locals go crazy for baseball, golf travelers find themselves going gaga over the island’s expanding array of world-class courses.
Indeed, if you want the best of Caribbean golf, you must go to the Dominican.
The eastern reaches of the island, with Punta Cana to the north and La Romana to the south, boast some of the most beautiful and memorable courses we have ever played. We sampled both areas this past December and found that while developments in Punta Cana may eventually lead it to overtake La Romana as the island’s chief golf mecca, for now the most complete and satisfying golf resort in the entire Caribbean remains Casa de Campo. With its four Pete Dye courses—including a superb, little-known private course the resort doesn’t offer to guests but that we will tell you how to access—Casa de Campo could be christened the “ Kohler of the Caribbean” with year-round unbeatable weather. In fact, Casa de Campo is much more than that. It’s a world unto itself with wonderful activities, incredible service, and its own way of life.
