Everyone knows about the Dominican Republic's cigars and their brilliant white sandy beaches. Also Christopher Columbus was the Dominican Republic's first tourist in 1942. Also known as the island of Hispaniola, the nation shares a border with Haiti and settled by the Spanish, becoming a convenient base for their onward conquest of much of the western hemisphere.
With 26 golf courses to choose from, the Dominican Republic is rapidly becoming the premier golf destination of the Caribbean and, with five Pete Dye courses (3 resort courses and 2 private) at Casa de Campo, including the magnificent Teeth of the Dog, the Dominican Republic really does live up to the hype.
Stunning vistas and incredible coastlines are in abundance in the Dominican Republic creating the backdrop for some of the most dramatic golf courses in the Americas. White-sand bunkers border lush-green fairways and immaculate greens creating destinations which are as impressive to admire as they are to play! With year-round temperatures of 78°F to 88°F, the Dominican Republic is the perfect golfing getaway. The best of the golf can be found on the Eastern end of the Island, with easy access via Punta Cana International airport. Here you will find a dozen great golf courses within an hour’s drive, including the two world famous resorts of Punta Cana and Casa de Campo.
