Casa de Campo
One of the world's top ranked courses--but the resort also has others.
Ranked one of the top courses in the world, the Pete Dye-designed
Teeth of the Dog course features 7 holes bordering the Atlantic
The Teeth of the Dog fairways are fairly wide open, but the difficulties lie around the greens where strategic placement of bunkers and fast greens can create havoc. A good short game is definitely required to avoid trouble.
Casa de Campo has a second Pete Dye course called the Dye Fore. This course is rumored to rival Teeth of the Dog in beauty and challenge. This beautiful course features 9 holes bordering the tall cliffs overlooking the scenic Chavon River.
Its length of over 7,800 yards is significantly longer than Teeth's 6,989 from the gold tees and it is irrigated with saltwater instead of freshwater due to a new saltwater-resistant grass that is being employed.
Throughout its layout, Dye Fore has spectacular views of
the Caribbean Sea, the mountains, the Chavon River and the Altos de
