LA ROMANA, Dominican Republic (Dec. 2, 2020) – Casa de Campo Resort & Villas, home to the Caribbean’s premier luxury golf experience, has entered into a partnership with GOLFZON to feature its iconic Pete Dye-designed Teeth of the Dog course on their cutting-edge golf simulators.
For more than 20 years, GOLFZON has been a bestselling and state-of-the-art golf simulator company. Awarded “Best Golf Simulator” for four consecutive years (2017-20) in Golf Digest’s Editor’s Choice, GOLFZON has a presence in 62 countries with over 6,200 sites around the world and 59 million rounds of golf played on the GOLFZON system in 2019.
With GOLFZON’s unparalleled technology featuring its hydraulic moving swing plate simulating real lies, multiple hitting surfaces and realistic graphics, golfers around the world will be able to experience celebrated Teeth of the Dog. Mr. Dye’s masterpiece design is widely known as the No. 1 course in the Caribbean.
Teeth of the Dog has long 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.”
“We are thrilled that GOLFZON will be showcasing our exceptional Teeth of the Dog layout on their incredible simulator technology,” says Jason Kycek, senior vice-president of sales and marketing. “Building partnerships with innovative, world-class companies like GOLFZON continues to place us in the highest echelons of ‘best of the best’ golf resort destinations.”
“We are very excited and thrilled to be partners with the world-class resort Casa de Campo,” says Tommy Lim, CEO of GOLFZON America. “We are much privileged to have their jewel Pete Dye course, Teeth of the Dog, to be inducted in our growing list of world-class virtual golf courses that will be enjoyed by GOLFZON members worldwide.”
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.
