The most exclusive golfers address in the Caribbean, Casa de Campo is sensational.

The Golf Lodge room is a relatively new category of room which is under the very high quality of the revamped Elite Patio and Elite Balcony rooms.

Teeth of the Dog opened in 1971, the par 72, Teeth of the Dog is a golfing masterpiece and is ranked as the number one course in the Caribbean and 43rd in the top 100 courses, worldwide, by Golf Magazine. With five sets of tees to choose from, the course can be as difficult as you want it to be. From the tee, fairways are fairly generous and the real challenge we feel is the approach shots to sloping greens either protected by strategically placed bunkering or the Caribbean Sea! Highlights of Teeth of the Dog are the 7 holes where the Caribbean Sea comes into play! Signature holes include the par 3 5th hole that includes a tricky tee shot over the ocean to a sloping green! Simply outstanding all round.
The Links originally opened in 1973, it has just recently just re-opened after major renovation and refurbishment. The beautiful inland Links course at Casa de Campo may not seem as exciting or challenging as its sea-side and cliff-hugging siblings, but don't be deceived. The Links is interior on the Resort property, with spectacular views of the Caribbean and the Resort. Its moderately hilly track, with tall bahia and guinea grass roughs, plus multiple sand traps that keep you on your toes. Thought by some to be reminiscent of traditional British and Scottish courses, there are several lagoons and even lakes with wading birds. There are five holes where water comes into play on this course making it a challenge unto itself.
Dye Fore is the newest of the courses at Casa de Campo and in our view one of the most exciting layouts with 27 holes of spectacular golf! Perched high above the resort the course offers stunning views of the Caribbean Sea, the Dominican mountains - the highest mountains in all the Caribbean, the Chavón River below, the Casa de Campo Marina and the Altos de Chavón artists village. The course is extremely undulating, with wide sloping fairways that require the ability to play shots from different lies. Finding the green is a must with tricky downhill and uphill approach shots to well protected greens!
