Casa de Campo (Dye Fore course)

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 2002

Casa de Campo (Dye Fore course): For over thirty years, the toast of Casa de Campo was Pete Dye's legendary Teeth of the Dog golf course, one of the Caribbean's most acclaimed layouts. Then, in 2002, the great man unveiled another in his world-class collection of inspired designs. Challenging "The Teeth" for top honours at Casa de Campo, but very different from its stablemate, the Dye Fore course is another immensely scenic, challenging and daring layout. Blessed with incredible terrain, the front-nine enjoys many fabulous views onto the Caribbean Sea, the wonderfully crafted holes sweeping down and back from the River Chavon. The views of Casa de Campo's marina and the river flowing out to the ocean are, like the holes themselves, stunning. Not to be outdone, the fabulous back-nine is played on one side of, and high above the river, which spectacularly carves its way through a valley of rocky cliffs, tumbling forests and the majestic river below. Many of the back-nine greens seem to hang out over the valley, while a look backwards from the long par-5 10th provides a memorable view of Casa de Campo's rustic, hilltop village - Altos de Chavon. With many British links-style influences, including dramatically undulating holes, and even a dry-stone wall to guide your drive at the short, uphill par-4 17th, this very open (and usually windy) back-nine is as thrilling and challenging a loop of golf holes as you are likely to play. When asked for his opinion, the acclaimed Welsh golf writer, Dai Faw, declared Casa de Campo's Dye Fore "a golf course that was certainly one to die for !" How right he was.

Did you know?

The Dye Fore golf course starts and finishes in the lofty environs of Casa de Campo's famed Altos de Chavon - a re-creation of a medieval European village. It was conceived and created by Roberto Copa, a former Paramount Studios set designer, and Charles Bluhdorn, the then chairman of Gulf+Western. Its construction began in 1976 when a nearby road and bridge crossing the Chavón river had to be blasted through a mountain of stone. Bludhorn had the idea of using the stones to build a 16th century Mediterranean village. Narrow, cobbled alleyways and shuttered limestone walls are home to several restaurants, quaint shops featuring local crafts, the charming St. Stanislaus Church with its plaza and sparkling fountain, and galleries exhibiting work from an on-site design school. A Roman-styled 5,000-seat amphitheatre has hosted many notable bands and singers, while the Génesis nightclub provides a popular venue for guests from the Casa de Campo resort.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
