It has been over 40 years since the Teeth of the Dog was opened for the first time and it continues to amaze even the most avid golfers. With18 jaw-droppingly-beautiful holes—including seven right along the ocean, every hole is unique and scenic. It comes to no surprise that Pete Dye’s first creation in Casa de Campo has been constantly on the list of the best golf courses in the Caribbean, and in the world, and considered by many golf lovers a must-play golf course. Just a few months ago, the Teeth of the Dog received 2020 with news that it had been ranked as No. 1 of Latin America and the Caribbean, and just last week one of the world’s Top golfers Davis Love III has placed it as his number 1 course to play in!
A two-time Ryder Cup captain, and six-time Ryder Cup team member, Davis Love III is one of the most respected players in golf today. Davis has amassed 21 PGA tournament victories, including the 1997 PGA Championship, and twice winning the Players Championship (1992 and 2003), and still takes part at the highest standard. In addition to his competitive career, in 1994, he launched a golf course design company with his brother, Mark, and in 2013, he began hosting the RSM Classic Golf Tournament. Davis Love III is a highly respected and earned his well-deserved place in the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2017.
In a video posted by Golf TV in Twitter Davis explains why he considers the Teeth of the Dog his number 1 golf course. Find the video below:

On July 13th, the Teeth of the Dog reopened after the closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with none other than Miguel Ángel Jiménez “El Mecánico”, multiple champion of the European Tour and PGA TOUR Champions, who “premiered” it with a superlative level of golf. The Spaniard, an honorary member of Casa de Campo, made nine birdies in a round he shared with his wife Susanne Styblo, Robert Birtel (CDC Professional Golf), and Gilles Gagnon (Director Emeritus of Golf at CDC). Find the video of the opening day here.
Golf is a game that lends itself to social distancing and this means Casa golfers can once again reacquaint themselves with the courses, but always remember that it is vital that everyone continues to follow best practice when it comes to dealing with the current pandemic.
We hope you enjoy the first of what we are sure will be many rounds of golf!
