Golf To Dye Fore In This Tropical Caribbean Paradise

Dye Fore - Chavon - Hole 1

The Dominican Republic is one of the largest countries in the Caribbean and is blessed with a tropical climate that makes it a year-round tourist destination. There are miles of golden beaches along its coastline which is also home to the majority of its highly regarded golf courses, including the world-famous Teeth of the Dog at Casa de Campo. This Pete Dye masterpiece has been a bucket-list favourite for more than half a century and is one of the most beautiful golf courses in the world.

Not so widely known is that the vast Casa de Campo with its huge array of accommodation and recreational facilities has further golf options of a quite different nature, especially the three excellent loops of nine that comprise the improbably-named Dye Fore. They are beautifully located up in the hills to the east, but each has something different from the others.

The Chavon hugs the high cliffs looking down over the river that runs to the coast from the mountains. Five of the holes on the Lagos nine flirt tantalisingly with one of several large lakes.
