From May 12 through May 18, the 2014 DR Open returns to paradise for this prestigious stop on the Latin American circuit of the PGA. Once again, the eyes of the golf world will be on the Dominican Republic, where leading golfers from the Americas and Europe will come together to challenge the majestic Teeth of the Dog (Casa de Campo) golf course.
Teeing Off in Paradise
The Dominican Republic’s reputation as a great golf destination continues to grow. It helps to have world-class golf courses designed by some of the best architects in the sport such as Paul B. “Pete” Dye.
Of course, to be able to tee off with a background of the awe-inspiring hues of the Caribbean Sea as they harmonically fusion with the lush tropical greens helps, too.
Teeth of the Dog Golf Course
‘Almost by accident, I saw before me the most beautiful seaside location for a golf course, little did I realize that my wonderful discovery would be the start of a lifelong devotion to this Caribbean country and its warm, gracious people.’
Pete Dye, architect & designer of Teeth of the Dog golf course
Located in beautiful La Romana, this challenging golf course was built in 1970 by the world-famous golf course architect Pete Dye. In addition to its incredible design, the course’s claim to fame is without a doubt its awe-inspiring setting.
Currently, Teeth of the Dog is ranked as the 43rd best course worldwide.
The 2014 DR Open
From May 12 through May 18, over 140 golfers from throughout the Americas and Europe will meet in La Romana for the 2014 DR Open to take up this challenging 18-hole golfer’s paradise.
