Ninth annual Casa de Campo Spring Shootout in Dominican Republic

LA ROMANA, Dominican Republic -- The 9th Annual Casa de Campo Spring Shootout will be held from April 21-25, 2013, at the finest resort in the Caribbean. The 54-hole stroke-play event—open to all amateurs, male and female, with a handicap—will be played over the top golf courses in the islands: Pete Dye's world-famous Teeth of the Dog, Dye Links, and Dye Fore layouts.

Winners from each flight will compete in a shootout over Teeth of the Dog on Wednesday, April 24, until four players—two men and two women—remain. They will battle over the Dog's 9th hole until individual champions are crowned.
