LA ROMANA, Dominican Republic (Oct. 21, 2020) – Casa de Campo Resort & Villas, home to the Caribbean’s premier, luxury golf experiences, including its iconic GOLF Magazine “World Top 100” Teeth of the Dog course, has entered into a partnership with the digital golf community Thousand Greens.
With over 7,000 members currently, Thousand Greens is a private, confidential and free peer-to-peer society of golfers belonging to highly regarded and top-rated private clubs. With no upfront buy-in or annual membership fees, it relies on like-minded golfers to host fellow club members as accompanied guests upon mutual convenience.
To join the Thousand Greens network, individuals must be a member of a private golf club. In addition to the opportunity to play some of the most heralded courses in the world including Pete Dye’s masterpiece design at Casa de Campo, Teeth of the Dog, members receive an array of exclusive benefits and VIP amenities.
“We are excited to enter into a partnership with such an innovative and creative company like Thousand Greens,” says Jason Kycek, senior vice-president of sales and marketing. “Bringing together those passionate about golf to form new friendships and play the game they love on some of the world’s greatest courses is a noble endeavor and we’re proud to be a part of this groundbreaking digital network.”
“Our members are passionate golfers who love to travel and experience the best the game has to offer, so Casa de Campo is an ideal partner,” says Manish Goel, founder of Thousand Greens. “Casa de Campo will offer our members exclusive packages to enjoy one of the world’s exceptional golf destinations.”
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.”
Casa de Campo has two addition Dye-created gems. 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 tumultuous terrain. Golf course architecture aficionados call Dye Fore “the most underrated course in the Caribbean.”
Located in the interior of the property is the resort’s third Dye layout, The Links. 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.
Casa de Campo also showcases a world-class Golf Learning Center. Highlighted by Trackman and BODITRAK technology, it features two indoor hitting bays for rapid game improvement, year-round training, individual and group golf lessons and schools, and expert club-fitting and repair.
Residing on 21 acres of “pure grass,” the PGA Tour-quality facility also showcases practice greens for honing putting, chipping and pitching games as well as unlimited use of the pristine outdoor range for full shots. On-course instruction is also available.
