Casa de Campo proudly displays its three courses designed by Dye. It is interesting to highlight some of the ideas and premises applied by this genius in the creation of golf courses so that each detail bears his mark, and precisely that of his masterpiece fulfills each one of them:

  1. The courts must be designed for all types of players, from a 36 handicap to a professional. It is important to get new players and challenge those who know.
  2. The player must remember each hole after playing. Your experience should be second to none.
  3. Fairways should be wide: "Narrow fairways and tall grass are bad remedies for poor design," said Dye.
  4. Wide greens reduce their stress when there are many players. That translates into fewer maintenance products, lower cost and greater care for the environment.

Every year, Casa de Campo presents a calendar of amateur championships that place it at the forefront of Caribbean golf. Undoubtedly, two of the most important in the region are the Casa de Campo Open (which celebrated its 40th edition in 2021) and the Pro Am Latin America, in which leading professionals participate together with hundreds of amateurs from all over the world.
