Pete and Alice Dye are infamous for their complex and challenging PGA Tour courses. It is to no surprise that they are the masterminds behind Casa de Campo’s golf courses. In the late 1960’s, the Dyes visited the Dominican Republic to explore the sugar cane and lone sugar mill area in La Romana. They saw an opportunity there, and they were right — creating a luxurious golf experience. Though the original intention was just for the couple to have tee time, today in La Romana, you can find nearly 4,000 homes and 54 golf holes for travelers near and far. Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, and The Link courses wrap around the Caribbean coastline while the houses sit back on the land where the views can still be seen.

The Dyes used to live on the golf courses where they spent their winters at their home near the seventh hole of Teeth of the Dog. Though the couple sadly passed away within the last two years, their legacy and passion continues to live on. They had an eye and appreciation for combining golf and real estate to create a paradise on earth of rolling green hills overlooking the ocean.
