LA ROMANA, Dominican Republic (Dec. 16, 2020) – Casa de Campo Resort & Villas, home to the Caribbean’s premier luxury golf experiences, including the iconic Teeth of the Dog course, has entered into a strategic partnership with Ship Sticks for its guests when visiting the world-class golf destination.
By shipping golf clubs and luggage ahead, the unique Ship Sticks process greatly reduces travel concerns, eliminates the need to lug bulky golf travel bags through airports, wasting time at airport check-in lines or baggage claims, paying baggage fees for oversized or heavy items, and preventing loss or damage due to handling.
The Ship Sticks service will be offered through a white-label microsite directly available to Casa de Campo’s resort guests. In addition, the services may be arranged on-site at the property through the concierge and guest services teams.
“We are continually seeking ways to enrich the total resort experience for our guests, and our partnership with Ship Sticks allows for stress-free travel even before arrival here in paradise,” says Jason Kycek, senior vice-president of sales and marketing. “Ship Sticks is a top-notch, innovative company providing a much-needed service, and we’re honored to begin this exciting partnership.”
“We are thrilled to begin working with a world-class golf destination like Casa de Campo,” says Nicholas Coleman, CEO of Ship Sticks. “Our service allows for stress-free, easy travel as our customers know their clubs and luggage will be secure and waiting for them upon arrival as well as having one less concern when returning home from a vacation to long savor.”
Casa de Campo is home to a trio of lauded Pete Dye-designed layouts: Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, and The Links. Since opening in 1974, Teeth of the Dog is widely recognized as the No. 1 course in the Caribbean. Golf course architecture aficionados call Dye Fore “the most underrated course in the Caribbean.” The Links showcases Dye’s genius for creating thrilling green complexes.
Teeth of the Dog has long been a “bucket list” layout for those seeking to play one of the world’s top 50 golf courses. 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 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.
