The Golf & The Tournament

3 FREE 18 hole Tournament Rounds!
FREE unlimited use of driving range!

Ok lets get to the Golf and the Tournament first, and further down on this page all non golfers/companion/spouse/kids can read about what they can be doing as well! Note: Your companion/spouse can play golf too, or instead of you if you do not play (they play on your behalf and your airline/agency). They can only win prizes though if you accompany them on the prize vacation!

/_assets/RUNkY2ZJOUxNejdjMW8xVzlBZWMwUT09

Entry and bookings for the tournament are invited from Airline and/or Travel Agency/Tour Operator Employees from around the world. There will be 3 x 18 hole rounds of golf with FREE Green Fees! one on each of the 3 spectacular golf courses on the 17, 18 & 19 October 2019

There will only be 48 golfers (12 teams of 4 players ~ players will be randomly allocated to a team on arrival at Casa de Campo) so space is very limited and this tournament will sell out very fast. You must be an industry employee with I.D. and can bring 1 companion or spouse and dependent children with you if you wish (occupying the same room). Spouses/companions can also play golf or play on your behalf if you are not a golfer. Strokeplay: Every player competes all 18 holes and counts the total number of strokes (with free stroke allocation based on handicap) and the person with the lowest total net score wins. (based on the cumulative scores of the 3 x 18 hole games)

/_assets/ZGtEVEFxTzFpanBCaldERWdjYlRpQT09

Golf will take place in the mornings only, with the rest of the day and evening/night entirely at your leisure ~ on an All Inclusive Basis (all meals, alcoholic/soft drinks included). So non golfers, you or your companion/spouse and/or kids, will only be without the golfer in the mornings! 

/_assets/eHZiRERnb1ZZTEliU2Z1ZXkvMWd1Zz09

The Tournament itself commences at breakfast on the 17 October 2019 and finishes with a Gala Grand Prize Giving Ceremony before dinner on the 19th October 2019. After dinner (which is again at your leisure), it is overnight at the resort and check out is by noon 12:00 on the 20th October. You may wish to arrive earlier that the 17th October (especially if you are traveling standby) whereby you can also join the welcome drink reception on the evening of the 16th October. In this instance you can book extra nights at our Super Special rate and arrive any time from the 14 October 2019, and if you wish to extend your stay after the tournament you may do so by booking extra nights at our super special rate valid up until 29th October

The Courses

Designed by the legendary, and World Golf Hall of Fame member, Pete Dye; Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore and The Links have been meticulously carved from the coral shores, craggy mountains, and rolling hills of the Dominican Republic landscape, and offer a one-of-a-kind golf experience. Only at Casa de Campo can you play a different course each day at the same resort, with three completely different experiences.

At Casa de Campo Resort and Villas, golf isn’t just a pastime; it’s a way of life. With courses carved from the earth along the pristine Caribbean Sea – fringing the ocean, overlooking the Chavón River, and winding throughout our spectacular grounds.

/_assets/NVc0LzV6QkwraS9ZbUxDR2hqaEVzQT09

Teeth of the Dog ~ Number 1 course in the Caribbean! Pete Dye’s signature golf course, the #1 course in the Caribbean, and the #39 ranked course in the world—Teeth of the Dog has a reputation that’s well deserved. Meticulously hand carved from the rugged rock and coral of the Dominican coastline, the hard-fought and challenging creation of Teeth of the Dog is an apt description for what playing a round can be like.Rated the No1 golf course in the Caribbean. Click Here for more information Note: Caddies and Caddie fees are compulsory on this course and payable locally in addition ot the golf tournament/vacation package price 

Dye Fore golf course ~ Let’s talk numbers! 27 holes; 7,740 yards long; 7 scenic cliff-side holes dropping 300 feet to the Chavón River below; and breathtaking 360 views. By our calculations Pete Dye’s masterpiece, Dye Fore golf course, has a winning formula. Characterized by spectacular views of the Dominican mountains, the Chavón River, the Marina, and Altos de Chavón, this challenging cliff-side course is a delight for players of all levels. Now some more numbers for you: 12 and 15 – two of the greatest par three holes in the world; 5 – the amount of holes on the Lagos course with lakes in play; and 1 – the number of strokes it takes to get started on the round of a lifetime. Click Here for more information

The Links ~ Rise to the challenge. Reminiscent of traditional links courses typically found in the British Isles, these 18 holes wind through the interior of Casa de Campo and offer spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea and the Resort grounds. And even though The Links course might not be right beside the ocean, there’s still plenty of opportunity to go to the beach—no less than five holes feature water hazards. Rolling hills and ocean views offer an unique and fun golf experience. Click Here for more information
