helped Dominican Republic maintain the status of Golf Capital of the Caribbean. The country’s flagship
courses include the Pete Dye-designed trifecta at Casa de Campo resort in La Romana, which features
Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore and The Links. From the British-inspired hills, lagoons and lakes at The Links to the challenging sea-facing holes at the world-famous Teeth of the Dog, Dye’s courses embody an exlusive combination of variety, difficulty and natural beauty.
Other courses at the top of every golfer’s bucket list include Cana Bay, located adjacent to the luxurious
Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana. On the north coast, Playa Dorada is a must, designed by the
legendary architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr., featuring five holes with sea views and one directly adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean. For an inland challenge, golfers flock to Guavaberry Golf & Country Club near the capital city of Santo Domingo. The course features a 15-foot waterfall and coral rock formations that add dramatic visual interest at holes 9 and 18.
