Dominican Republic golf:
Dominican Republic golf courses have quickly become a major attraction in the Caribbean. The shear quality of their designs and value are a natural add to any DR vacation. Dominican Republic golf packages of all kinds for both the serious and the recreational player are available at most resorts around the country. Flights from Canada are numerous and offer several gateway options for your next Dominican Republic golf trip. What makes golf so popular is the combination of outstanding year round summer weather and the varied terrain. Dominican Republic golf weather allows for play even during rainy days, when brief showers quickly give way to clear skies. Course architects have incorporated hills and coastline into the design to doubly challenge the golfers. This year, experience a Dominican Republic golf package with the guys, ladies or group. Just be sure to pack extra golf balls with the shorts.
Suggested Dominican Republic golf courses:
Teeth of the Dog GC: one of three championship courses at Casa de Campo Resort. "The opportunity to carve out Teeth of the Dog was a once-in-a-lifetime experience," Pete Dye wrote in his book, Bury Me In a Pot Bunker. "Without proper heavy machinery to crack the coral, the tireless Dominican crew used sledgehammers, pickaxes and chisels." The result was a true masterpiece!
The Links: this course is interior at Casa de Campo with spectacular views of the Caribbean and the Resort. Its moderately hilly track, with tall bahia and guinea grass roughs plus multiple sand traps keep you on your toes. Thought by some to be reminiscent of traditional British and Scottish courses, there are five holes where water comes into play on this course making it a challenge unto itself.
Dye Fore: The numbers are staggering: 27 holes, 7,740 yards in length; 7 cliff-side holes dropping 300 feet to the Chavon River below; 40 mph gusting winds - and breathtaking 360 degree views! Introducing Pete Dye´s latest gem at Casa de Campo. Have fun.
