Course Review and Comments

Overall, it is easy to understand why Casa de Campo is rated the #1 golf resort in the Caribbean and #25 in the world! It is a complete resort and despite being the oldest facility (I think) in this part of the DR, it does not show its age, but shows its maturity - especially with seamless operations and facilities.

Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments The layout of Dye Fore's original front and back nine (called Marina and Chavon) are both exhilarating and challenging! Two completely different views and experiences, yet with traditional Pete Dye style and consistency. Each 9 boasts unrivaled views of the ocean and the river Chavon, which make it difficult to focus on the shot at hand. Each hole is significant in its own way, as well, leaving golfers with the (unique) ability to remember each and every hole - something that we know is difficult to do when traveling to different courses. The new nine (Lagos) has undulating fairways and tricky greens, and while not as visually spectacular as the Chavon and Marina, it is an equally challenging nine holes.
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments The Marina nine were recently completely replanted with Seashore PasPalum in 2013, and opened by December of 2013 to great reviews! While the Chavon greens are a tad older, they are still in good playing condition. The new nine (Lagos) condition is as perfect as you can get. All three courses are maintained with meticulous attention, making it hard to find a bad lie that you didn't create on your own!
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments The staff at Casa de Campo are the most accommodating and friendly that I have met in the Dominican Republic! With three very busy and very diverse courses, their staff does a great job at escorting you to your cart, caddy and clubs in record time!
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments A new driving range was added to the Dye Fore facility and is conveniently located between 1 and 10. The 19th hole, pro shop and practice facilities at Teeth of the Dog are comfortable and convenient.
