Dye masterpiece design moves up 12 spots in ‘World’s 100 Greatest Courses’

 
LA ROMANA, Dominican Republic – Casa de Campo Resort & Villas, home to the Caribbean’s premier luxury golf experiences, announces its Pete Dye-designed masterpiece, Teeth of the Dog, significantly rose 12 spots and now sits at  No. 20 in Golf Digest’s “World’s 100 Greatest Courses.”

Featuring internationally rated courses outside the U.S., Teeth of the Dog joins some of the greatest layouts in the game on the prestigious list including Northern Ireland’s Royal County Down G.C and Royal Portrush G.C. as well as The Old Course in St. Andrews and Muirfield in Scotland. Teeth of the Dog is the highest ranked course in both the Dominican Republic and the Caribbean.

This distinction follows Casa de Campo receiving Golf Digest’s prominent 2022 “Editors’ Choice Award” in the “Best Resorts in the Americas” (Caribbean / Bermuda category) recognizing the “best of the best” in the golf industry. This is the sixth consecutive year Casa de Campo has received the coveted tribute.

Teeth of the Dog has long been a “bucket list” layout for those seeking to play one of the world’s top 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.”

“This dramatic rise in the ratings from Golf Digest is a wonderful tribute for both the genius of Pete Dye as well as the ever-growing popularity of Teeth of the Dog as one of the world’s most spectacular courses,” says Jason Kycek, senior vice-president of sales and marketing. “In addition to Teeth of the Dog, we showcase two additional Pete Dye gems, Dye Fore and The Links, for an exceptional golf experience few destinations can match.”

The resort’s world-class Golf Learning Center is a “must visit” when on property. 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 multiple practice greens for honing short game prowess as well as unlimited use of the pristine outdoor range for full shots. On-course instruction is also available.
