Casa de Campo (La Romana Country Club)

Private: A course for members and their invited guests only.

Est. 1990

Casa de Campo (La Romana Country Club): Opened some 20 years after Casa de Campo's highly acclaimed Teeth of the Dog golf course, La Romana Country Club serves as the private members' course for this impressively large resort and upscale residential estate. You'll need to be accompanied by a member, or have a quiet word with the resort concierge, if you want to sample any of La Romana's 27-holes. If you do tee it up here, a pleasant, Caribbean parkland-style layout awaits, although nothing quite as jaw-dropping as its more renowned neighbours, the "Teeth" and Dye Fore courses. The Country Club course weaves its way through pleasantly undulating terrain and alongside, but never too close to, the estate's high-value residences. The fairways here are forgivingly wide, although in true Pete Dye tradition, a wonderful array of bunkering is deployed to catch any wayward drives, and staunchly defend the greens. Water is seldom in play, although the long par-3's, often well-over 200 yards from the tips, will ensure you don't have too easy a time on this well-designed and immaculately presented layout.

Did you know?

Casa de Campo was created thanks to the vast resources of the Gulf & Western Co. Their mill in La Romana used to produce 300,000 tons of sugar a year, making it, at that time, the world's largest single producer of sugar. The executive in charge of sugar production in the late 1960s was a Cuban exile named Alvaro Carta. As a way of investing some of the company's growing profits in his adopted Dominican homeland, he decided that the country and its economy would benefit from a full-service resort, with golf as its cornerstone.

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.
