PETE DYE - GOLF COURSE DESIGNER
THE MAN, THE LEGEND
Considered to be the best golf course designer of the last 60 years, Pete Dye is a true legend. Casa de Campo Resort and Villas is proud to feature three Pete Dye-designed courses, each distinct from the last, but all challenging in their own way.
With a hands-on and organic style that was solidified by visiting the birthplace of golf, Scotland, Dye’s signature elements—like railway ties and tiny pot bunkers—have been influenced by the history of the game.
In addition to creating the best course in the whole Caribbean, Casa de Campo’s own Teeth of the Dog, Dye has also designed world-renowned courses like the Stadium Course at the Tournament Players Club at Sawgrass, the PGA West course, the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, and Whistling Straits, as well as collaborating with Jack Nicklaus on the Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
There are only a few places where you can play the beauty, challenge, and vision of golf’s master course designer, Pete Dye. At Casa de Campo, however, you can play not just one of his golf courses, but three, including one of the best in the world, and #1 in the Caribbean, Teeth of the Dog. On each and every hole, a new test of skill awaits. Will you go for the long drive to carry the water hazard between you and the green? Or, will you play strategic shot to hug the edge of the fairway opposite a deep sandy bunker on the other side? With its oceanfront holes, dramatic dog legs, and multi-leveled greens surrounded by coral and water, there is always a new adventure waiting on Teeth of the Dog.
