Teeth of the Dog Golf Course

Last updated: 21 March, 2024

A serious contender for the best course in the Caribbean, CdC has 18 salivating holes of golf meticulously carved out of the rock and coral of the south-eastern shores of the Dominican coast. This Pete Dye masterpiece is no pushover.

When the trade winds blow it plays every inch of its 7,350 yards (from the tips), but its genius is in its tempting risk/reward layout: gamble off the tee and your reward is a much easier second shot, but get it wrong and the course will absolutely bite back. No wonder its motto is ‘All bite, No Bark.’
