Teeth of the Dog Golf Course
This was the first golf course designed by Pete Dye in the Dominican Republic. The course is currently ranked as the number one golf course in the Caribbean.
Last year Casa de Campo unveiled a statue of Pete Dye at the entrance of the Teeth of the Dog Golf Course, the only course in the world with seven holes at the very edge of the Caribbean Sea. This stretch of the golf course is known as the “seven holes created by God.”
