Golf Vacations - - Chip Shots -

Casa de Campo Re­sort & Vil­las – home to the Caribbean’s premier, lux­ury golf ex­pe­ri­ences, in­clud­ing the iconic Teeth of the Dog course – has opened its new world­class Golf Learn­ing Cen­ter.

The state-of-the-art fa­cil­ity is led by Char­lie Epps, renowned in­struc­tor and long­time coach to twice ma­jor cham­pion An­gel Cabr­era. High­lighted by Track­man and BODITRAK tech­nol­ogy, it fea­tures two in­door hit­ting bays for rapid game im­prove­ment, year-round train­ing, in­di­vid­ual and group golf lessons and schools, and ex­pert club-fit­ting and re­pair.

Re­sid­ing on 21 acres of “pure grass,” the PGA Tour-qual­ity fa­cil­ity also show­cases prac­tice greens for hon­ing putting, chip­ping and pitch­ing games as well as un­lim­ited use of the pris­tine out­door range for full shots. On-course in­struc­tion is avail­able on the re­sort’s three Pete Dye-de­signed lay­outs in­clud­ing cel­e­brated Teeth of the Dog.

Ideal to im­prove in the scenic Caribbean, the re­sort is of­fer­ing a “Train in Par­adise Pack­age” start­ing at $823 (per per­son, per night). It in­cludes deluxe ac­com­mo­da­tions in Pete Dye Golf Lodge and Elite guest rooms, one golf les­son per day with a Golf Learn­ing Cen­ter pro­fes­sional, com­pli­men­tary club-fit­ting, daily green fees and break­fast, a four-pas­sen­ger golf cart to use through­out the stay, un­lim­ited use of the re­sort’s fit­ness cen­ter, and club stor­age and shared cart when play­ing the cour­ses.

In an in­no­va­tive ap­proach, the re­sort is also of­fer­ing a “PGA / LPGA Pack­age” for vis­it­ing teach­ing pro­fes­sion­als. It gives in­struc­tors full use of the Golf Learn­ing Cen­ter fa­cil­i­ties to pro­vide their stu­dents with a place to train and im­prove at one of the world’s elite golf des­ti­na­tions.

“Our new out­stand­ing Golf Learn­ing Cen­ter of­fers guests an ex­cep­tional set­ting to im­prove their re­spec­tive games with our ex­pert in­struc­tors and the lat­est tech­nol­ogy” says An­dres Pichardo Rosen­berg, Pres­i­dent of Casa de Campo. “We in­vite you to visit us for an ex­tra­or­di­nary golf ex­pe­ri­ence and dis­cover first-hand why our golf cour­ses, ac­com­mo­da­tions, cus­tomer care and ameni­ties are sec­ond to none.”

Since open­ing in 1974, Teeth of the Dog has been a “bucket list” lay­out for those seek­ing to play one of the top 50 golf cour­ses in the world. Dye’s de­sign hall­marks are all present: rail­road ties, vast waste ar­eas, penin­sula greens and tees, hand-sculpted putting sur­faces and a unique as­sort­ment of pot bunkers. “The Heaven 7” ocean­front holes are as­tound­ingly beau­ti­ful, caus­ing Dye to fa­mously quip: “I cre­ated 11 holes and God cre­ated seven.”

Twenty-seven-hole Dye Fore joined Teeth of the Dog in 2002. Its three nines – Chavon, Ma­rina and Lakes – are dis­tinct. Chavon fea­tures seven holes run­ning atop cliffs drop­ping 300 feet, Ma­rina me­an­ders down to a har­bor ringed by restau­rants and shops, and Lakes is art­fully crafted across tu­mul­tuous ter­rain. Golf course ar­chi­tec­ture afi­ciona­dos call Dye Fore “the most un­der­rated course in the Caribbean.”
