“The Latin America Pro Am is a joyous celebration of golf with the opportunity to play Pete Dye’s renowned Teeth of the Dog,” says Andres Pichardo Rosenberg, President of Casa de Campo. “We invite you with open arms to visit us for the event and enjoy our world-class accommodations and amenities at the premier golf resort in the Caribbean.”
Since opening in 1974, Teeth of the Dog has received accolade after accolade from major golf media. 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. Oceanfront holes are astoundingly beautiful, causing Dye to famously quip: “I created 11 holes and God created seven.”
