Teeth of the Dog
Ranked #1 on the top 50 Caribbean and Atlantic Islands list is Casa de Campo's Teeth of the Dog, one of the most memorable golf courses in the world. Built on the southern shoreline of the Dominican Republic between Santo Domingo and Punta Cana, this course is a must visit when travelling to the island. Pete Dye has designed dozens of world renowned golf courses and Teeth of the Dog is considered one of his finest creations. In terms of global recognition, it has firmly cemented itself as a Top100 golf course in the world, achieving this year after year.
Cutting 7 of the 18 holes out of the natural coral coastline adds misty breezes from the Caribbean Sea to the atmosphere, as waves crash in your backswing. Lush green grass is surrounded by sandy beaches and tropical palms throughout the property. From the back tees the yardage stretches 7,350 yards and holds a USGA course rating of 76.4. Many golfers have started their rounds with low numbers in mind but sadly and surely have finished with their tails between their legs.
