Casa de Campo, the World’s Leading Golf Resort (2010), is making preparations to hopefully claim this coveted title for 2011 – with the completion of a new golf course and driving range, as well as the complete renovation of ‘The Links’ golf course and the driving range at the Teeth of the Dog.
Since 2001, Casa de Campo has been successful at the World Travel Awards – hailed as the ‘Oscars’ of the travel industry. Among Casa de Campo’s many awards, they have won the ‘Caribbean’s Leading Golf Resort’ no less than 5 times – in 2001, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010, as well as claiming the glory of the ‘World’s Leading Golf Resort’ for the last 4 consecutive years – 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. In 2009 and 2010, Casa de Campo was also the winner of Leading Golf Resort in the DR, Leading Resort in the Caribbean and Leading Resort in the DR. This year, having been nominated for no less than 8 different awards, Casa de Campo’s success looks set to continue!

With this year’s awards looming in the next 6 months, Casa de Campo is taking advantage of now to refresh, renew and renovate Casa de Campo’s already impressive golfing facilities.
This year in August Casa de Campo will celebrate the opening of it’s 5th Pete Dye designed golf course – the new ‘9’ (as yet unnamed) near Altos de Chavón and the Dye Fore – this new facility will afford golfers a different golfing experience when playing in Altos de Chavón as the new ‘9’ has been designed to join with the Dye Fore and create a different 18 hole course. As part of this course a new Practice Range has also been opened, meaning that as well as 5 golf courses, Casa de Campo now boasts 3 practice ranges.
As well as this, work is already underway to completely renovate the Links – a beautiful inland course with palm tree lined lakes. The Links course closed on Monday May the 9th and is scheduled to remain closed until mid-December whilst it undergoes a renovation, maintenance and improvement plan being overseen by Pete Dye himself. Also under renovation is the Practice Range at the Teeth of the Dog, which is planned to last a month.
With so much going on in Casa de Campo’s world of golf – Casa de Campo’s bid to take the ‘World’s Leading Golf Resort’ title for a 5th year running is well underway!
