"Teeth of the Dog, the eighteen-hole design by Pete Dye at Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic, is set for what the resort describes as a ‘facelift’ in 2025.
Jerry Pate, a US Open champion who has been working as a golf course architect since 1978, is the course consultant at the resort and is overseeing the work. He is being supported by his senior designer, Steve Dana.
Teeth of the Dog is located on the Dominican Republic’s southern coast and regularly tops lists of best courses in the Caribbean. Dye’s design was built on rocky terrain alongside the Caribbean Sea, with seven holes playing on the coastline.
Work on the course includes a regrassing of tees, fairways, and greens with the saltwater-tolerant Pure Dynasty paspalum, developed by Pure-Seed Testing, Inc. and marketed by Atlas Turf International and Pure Seed, as well as sandcapping to enhance soil depth."
