(LA ROMANA, Dominican Republic) – Casa de Campo Resort & Villas – home to the Caribbean’s premier, luxury golf experiences – announces its celebrated Pete Dye-designed Teeth of the Dog and Dye Fore layouts are now featured on TrackMan indoor golf simulators worldwide.
Using state-of-the-art drone footage, TrackMan digitally rendered all 18 holes of Teeth of the Dog and 27 holes of Dye Fore with its innovative 3D technology. The spectacular ocean-hugging par-3 fifth hole on Teeth of the Dog, one of the most photographed in the game, will be displayed as the loading image on all Trackman simulator bays during the week of Feb. 15.
Teeth of the Dog has long been a “bucket list” layout for those seeking to play one of the world’s top 50 golf courses. Dye’s design hallmarks are all present: railroad ties, vast waste areas, peninsula greens and tees, hand-sculpted putting surfaces, and a unique assortment of pot bunkers. “The Heaven 7” oceanfront holes are astoundingly beautiful, causing Dye to famously quip: “I created 11 holes, and God created seven.”
Twenty-seven-hole Dye Fore joined Teeth of the Dog in 2002. Its three nines – Chavon, Marina and Lakes – are distinct. Chavon features seven holes running atop cliffs dropping 300 feet, Marina meanders down to a harbor ringed by restaurants and shops, and Lakes is artfully crafted across tumultuous terrain. Golf course architecture aficionados call Dye Fore “the most underrated course in the Caribbean.”
“We are thrilled our Teeth of the Dog and Dye Fore courses will be featured on TrackMan simulators around the globe,” says Jason Kycek, senior vice-president of sales and marketing. “Our partnership with a cutting-edge company like TrackMan allows us to showcase our world-class golf courses here in paradise to a whole new audience of future guests.”
In addition to the two courses at Casa de Campo, the TrackMan technology allows virtual play on some of the world’s most famous golf destinations such as Royal Portrush, Innisbrook, Muirfield Village, PGA National as well as four layouts at legendary St. Andrews Links in Scotland including the iconic Old Course.
Casa de Campo also showcases two TrackMan simulators at its world-class Golf Learning Center. The facility features two indoor hitting bays for rapid game improvement, year-round training, individual and group golf lessons and schools, and expert club-fitting and repair. Residing on 21 acres of “pure grass,” the PGA TOUR-quality facility also showcases practice greens for honing putting, chipping, and pitching games as well as unlimited use of the pristine outdoor range for full shots. On-course instruction is also available.
