Teeth of the Dog
A Golf Course With Bite

Ranked one of the top courses in the world, the Pete Dye-designed Teeth of the Dog course features 7 holes bordering the Atlantic Ocean

The layout is surprisingly forgiving from the red tees (4779 yds).  Longer carries over rough and water make it significantly more challenging from the white (5,914 yds), blue (6,630 yds) or gold (6,989 yds) tees.

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 Chavon village.

With the addition of Dye Fore, Casa de Campo now offers 3 professional, 18-hole layouts.

The Links, a 6,602-yard course, is also included in the resort's "Completely GOLF" packages for those with the time to spend a few days on property.
