(LA ROMANA, Dominican Republic)
Casa de Campo Resort & Villas – home to the Caribbean’s premier, luxury golf experiences, including the iconic Teeth of the Dog course – is offering two “Unlimited Teeth of the Dog” stay-and-play golf packages for tropical getaways to long remember.
Highlighted by the opportunity to enjoy the Pete Dye-designed masterpiece widely recognized as the No. 1 course in the Caribbean, the “Unlimited Teeth of the Dog with Breakfast” package starts at $247 per person, per night through Dec. 21, 2018. In addition to “all day” play on Teeth of the Dog, guests can also tee it up from sunup to sundown on the resort’s two additional Pete Dye gems: Dye Fore (27 holes) and The Links (18).
The offer also includes first-class accommodations in a Pete Dye Golf Lodge or Elite guest room, full daily breakfast buffet at Lago Restaurant, use of a four-passenger golf cart to travel throughout the resort, complimentary Wi-Fi and use of the resort’s fitness center. All golf rounds are based on availability and include arrival and departure days.
The “Unlimited Teeth of the Dog Inclusive” golf package features all the elements above plus daily breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner and drinks by the glass at resort signature restaurants or room service (extra delivery charge), unlimited horseback riding, use of the property’s tennis courts, one round at the 245-acre Shooting Club, non-motorized water sports and family program activities. This offers starts at $375 per person, per night over the same timeframe.
“We here at Casa de Campo like to say that all guests have to do is bring their clubs and we will handle everything else needed for an incredible Caribbean getaway,” says Andres Pichardo Rosenberg, President of Casa de Campo. “Golfers will enjoy our exceptional accommodations and resort amenities while playing our 63 holes designed by Pete Dye including the shining jewel of our property, Teeth of the Dog.”
Since opening in 1974, Teeth of the Dog has been a “bucket list” layout for those seeking to play one of the top 50 golf courses in the world. Dye’s design hallmarks are all present: railroad ties, vast waste areas, peninsula greens and tees, hand-sculpted putting surfaces and a unique assortment of pot bunkers. “The Heaven 7” oceanfront holes are astoundingly beautiful, causing Dye to famously quip: “I created 11 holes and God created seven.”
Twenty-seven-hole Dye Fore joined Teeth of the Dog in 2002. Its three nines – Chavon, Marina and Lakes – are distinct. Chavon features seven holes running atop cliffs dropping 300 feet, Marina meanders down to a harbor ringed by restaurants and shops, and Lakes is artfully crafted across the tumultuous terrain. Golf course architecture aficionados call Dye Fore “the most underrated course in the Caribbean.”
Located in the interior of the resort property, Dye renovated The Links in 2012. The moderately hilly track with tall Bahia grass framing bunkers and undulating greens presents spectacular Caribbean views. Slightly over 7,000 yards from the back tees and playing to a slope of 126, it is considered one of the most-forgiving courses Dye has designed.
