A walk through this year’s golf rankings:

Since its inception, the Teeth of the Dog at Casa de Campo has had its razor-sharp canines into the psyche and game of golfers who hear of it, see it and are compelled to play. Beckoned from around the globe, this classic Pete Dye masterpiece – after 38 years – still never ceases to amaze the young and old, pro´s and amateurs, experts and critics from around the world. The only course with seven holes skirting the Caribbean Sea, the Teeth of the Dog is continued ranked as one of the best in the world.

New golf rankings just released:

  • Golf Magazine Sept. 2009, “50 Greatest Courses of the last 50 Years,” #8;
  • Golf Magazine Oct. 2009 issue “Top 100 Golf Courses in the World,” #42
  • Golf Digest, Oct. 2009 issue “75 Best Golf Resorts in North America, #32.

In each case the Teeth of the Dog is the ONLY course in the Caribbean to appear on these rankings.

Built entirely by hand, the Teeth of the Dog opened in 1971 with 6,888 yards and a par 72-layout. Pete Dye credits its creation to divine intervention, ¨I built eleven holes and God built seven,” says Dye, referring to the seven captivating sea-side holes.
