Long known as the ultimate beach getaway destination, the ‘DR’ is known for its friendly people and its long strands of beach against the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. Every year though, Golf becomes a higher priority for its visitors, a country that had only a handful of courses 20 years ago, now boasts over 30 layouts around the Island and some of the best in world to bring a little excitement to your winter getaway.
The best locations are along the South Coast of the DR, in the La Romana and the Juan Dolio area, less than an hour from the capital, Santo Domingo, there is a growth of golf and beach visitors every year, led by that classic Golf Resort, Casa de Campo. With 3 incredible courses to choose from, the Teeth of the Dog course is ranked #45 in World annually, as it hugs the coastline and the pounding surf of the Caribbean Sea. Certainly one of Pete Dye’s finest ever. The other 2 layouts on property are most enjoyable and no push over in their own right. Golf not to be missed! In nearby Juan Dolio, be sure to visit Guavaberry GC and the Los Marlins GC, both a perfect country club retreat for the day.
