Teeth of the Dog
Considered by many to be the world´s most renowned golf course architect, World Golf Hall of Fame member Pete Dye - hand in hand with wife , Alice Dye, created three of the most challenging courses in the game for Casa de Campo: Teeth of the Dog; The Links and Dye Fore!
Ranked as the number one course in the Caribbean and 43rd in the top 100 courses, worldwide, by Golf Magazine, Pete Dye´s classic Teeth of the Dog attracts the best professional and amateur golfers in the world.
BUILDING THIS COURSE WAS A TRUE LABOR OF LOVE...
"The opportunity to carve out Teeth of the Dog was a once-in-a-lifetime experience," Pete Dye wrote in his book, Bury Me In a Pot Bunker. "Without proper heavy machinery to crack the coral, the tireless Dominican crew used sledgehammers, pickaxes and chisels." The result was a true masterpiece!
Tricky shots such as a devilish dogleg and signature Dye obstacles captivate the world´s best. Toss-in trade winds courtesy of Mother Nature and "seven holes created by God," said Dye, who lays claim to creating only the other eleven, and you discover the magnetic force of this amazing course.
But beware... if you dare to challenge the Dog, "at some point in your game, this Dog WILL bite you... guaranteed," chuckles Gilles Gagnon, Director of Golf at Casa de Campo.
Top-notch caddies are ready and eager to guide you through the challenge of this beautiful course.
