Casa de Campo is more than a resort that offers golf, it’s a world premier golf resort in a breathtaking destination.

Casa de Campo is one of the most exclusive resorts in the Caribbean, boasting three championship golf courses including the “Teeth of the Dog” ranked Number 1 course in the Caribbean along with Dye Fore and The Links.

Teeth of the Dog – ranked as the #1 golf course in the Caribbean and #27 in the World
Pete Dye’s signature golf course, Teeth of the Dog has a reputation that’s well deserved with 18 jaw-droppingly-beautiful holes—including seven right along the ocean. Meticulously hand carved from the rugged rock and coral of the Dominican coastline, the hard-fought and challenging creation of Teeth of the Dog is an apt description for what playing a round can be like. The course is brimming with stunning natural landscapes, historical undertones, and the chance to play your best game yet. Ranked first in the Caribbean, this golf course in paradise should be on every golfer’s bucket list.

Dye Fore golf course – Pete Dye’s masterpiece
Characterized by spectacular views of the Dominican mountains, the Chavón River, the Marina, and Altos de Chavón. This challenging cliff-side course with 7 scenic cliff-side holes dropping 300 feet to the Chavón River below; breath taking 360 degrees views is a stunning one-of-a-kind masterpiece.

The Links
Another Pete Dye creation, The Links was completely overhauled in 2012 to make it every bit as challenging as the other courses at Casa de Campo. Reminiscent of traditional links courses typically found in the British Isles, these 18 holes wind through the interior of Casa de Campo and offer spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea and the Resort grounds. The Links golf course provides plenty of opportunity to admire the sea — as no less than five holes feature water hazards. Rolling hills and ocean views offer a unique and fun golf experience.

Finalists will be flown out courtesy of tournament partners British Airways and will enjoy 3 rounds of golf and 4 nights accomodation in this luxury resort.

Casa de Campo offers an endless list of luxury facilities including 7 outstanding restaurants including the stunning new Minitas Beach Club, a Marina, Equestrian Center featuring Polo, Shooting Course, great shopping and 3 private pristine white sand beaches
