Where2Golf says: 

Casa de Campo (The Links course): Although often demoted to third in line in the Casa de Campo hierarchy, perhaps an afternoon option, the Links course is another excellent Pete Dye design, and definitely not to be overlooked. Although lacking the dramatic oceanside holes of its illustrious neighbour, the Teeth of the Dog, or the stunning river views of Dye Fore, this very pleasant parkland-style, resort course is certainly no pushover. Gracefully weaving its way through unintrusive, upscale housing, the fairways here are lined with a dazzling array of tropical flora, as well as artistically crafted bunkers of every shape and size. The flatness of the opening two holes changes dramatically at the par-4 3rd, one of several holes played to small, elevated and heavily contoured greens. Around the putting surfaces all manner of bunkering and lunar-like mounding will test and challenge your short-game, on what you'll discover is generally a "forgiving tee-shot", but "testing second-shot" golf course. Although absent on the front-nine, water makes its present felt during the middle section of the inward-nine. Both the par-3 13th and 16th holes are defended by ponds fronting the greens, while back-to-back par-4s at 15 and 16 are wrapped around the same small lake, bringing water into play for anything hit too far left off the tee. Its hard for The Links to steal any limelight from Casa de Campo's Teeth and Dye Fore courses, but if those to golfing behemoth's have given your game a mauling, the Links might just be the place to put it back in order.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

Did you know?

Transforming Casa de Campo from a concept to reality in the late 1960s, involved finding a suitable plot of land on which the dream could unfold. The land that was selected for the resort was a huge 7,000 acre plot to the east of La Romana. Like the original links-land used for the earliest golf courses in Britain & Ireland, the terrain that became Casa de Campo was too sparsely vegetated for cattle grazing, and too infertile for agriculture, which in Dominican's case implied sugarcane production. Although it may not have the look and feel of a classic British links layout, the Links Course at Casa de Campo occupies a tract of Dominican "links-land", on which grazing and agriculture were not possible.
