Whenever I take a stroll on the Teeth of the Dog (normally early in the morning or late in the afternoon for sunset), I am always mesmerized by the ocean – avidly staring out watching the waves, the passing boats and hoping to see a dolphin. However, on this particular morning, my walking partner, Philip Silvestri turned his back on the ocean – and was rewarded by getting this super rainbow shot!
I love this photo! There are so many wonderful and beautiful photos of the Teeth of the Dog golf course, but the majority focus purely on the ocean or rather the golf course and the ocean – so many in fact you would think that there was nothing else worth photographing on this incredible and varied golf course.
So next time you rock around Casa de Campo’s Teeth of the Dog golf course, whether on foot, golf cart or bike – take a look around you and take a moment to really appreciate just how beautiful it is!
The Teeth of the Dog golf course: for non-golfers!
You don’t golf? So what! Golf or no golf, everyone one in Casa de Campo should do a tour of the Teeth of the Dog. The best holes of the Teeth of the Dog for sightseeing are holes #5 – #8 and and #15 -#17, all of which skirt the Caribbean sea and therefore have the best views!
A tour of the Teeth of the Dog – walking, by bike or on golf cart
• Enter by Minitas Beach – to the right side of Minitas Beach there is a grassy area (a vacant villa plot), here you can drive/walk/bike through to get to hole #5 of the Teeth of the Dog
• Once you’re at hole #5, follow the course along with the ocean on your left hand side
• At the end of hole #8, follow the path away from the ocean until you get to the road, turn left onto the road until you find the golf course again
• Get back onto the golf course (this will be the end of hole #17)
• Again follow the golf course along with the ocean on your left hand side
• At the end – either turn back and do it over again, or follow the path back to the road

Tips for visiting the Teeth of the Dog (as a non-golfer)
#1: Go at sunset or sunrise – at this time you will have the best views and you won’t encounter golfers
#2: Take your camera!
#3: Beware of golfers – remember the Teeth of the Dog is first and foremost a golf course, so you should always give right of way to golfers. Look around you, if there are golfers on the course – keep your distance and make sure you are well out of their way.
