GOLF AT CASA DE CAMPO

Pete Dye is considered in many circles to be the most influential golf course architect of the last 50 years. And Casa de Campo is delighted to have four of his courses on the grounds. Each is distinct from the rest yet each bears the signature Dye style and challenge. Dye’s hands-on approach and organic style are superbly influenced by the traditions of the game. In fact, it was in 1963, that Dye’s style congealed on a visit to Scotland. It was there that he discovered railroad ties, tiny pot bunkers and many other course elements that he has successfully incorporated over the years.

The courses created by Pete Dye at Casa de Campo are among the finest places to golf in the world. The Teeth of the Dog’s inception in 1969 tasked Dye with transforming the overgrown, jagged coral reef coastline of the Dominican Republic into a single course worthy of "The Caribbean's Most Complete Resort". With the aide of 300 local laborers, Dye and his talented partner and wife Alice worked for two years to create the course that now ranks #1 in the Caribbean.

Play on the "Teeth's" seven ocean side holes is exhilarating. Errant balls collide with ocean rocks like ping pong balls, and strong Caribbean breezes challenge each stroke. His trademark railroad ties, vast waste areas, peninsula green and tees, hand-sculpted putting surfaces and unique assortment of pot bunkers and elevated bunkers give the course the signature Dye-style.

Although credited with designing the course, Dye is quick to point out that the "Teeth" was "definitely designed by the 'man upstairs'." In other words... "I created eleven holes and God created seven!" By far Dye's personal favorite, the "Teeth of the Dog" opened in 1971 as a 6,888-yard, par 72-layout, with par 3's celebrated by Golf Magazine.

The newer Dye Fore course and the award-winning Links course further the vision of Pete Dye and bring a unique and thrilling golf experience to Casa de Campo guests.

Casa de Campo's five "Pete Dye" designed golf courses play among the finest courses found anywhere. The famous "Teeth of the Dog" has seven holes skirting the ocean and consistently ranked #1 Course in the Caribbean on Golf Magazine's "Top 100 Courses of the World".
