Golfing, Golfing, and More Golfing

Casa de Campo has some of the best golfing spots in the DR, and arguably some of the best in the western hemisphere! The resort boasts three beautiful and enormous Pete Dye designed golf courses – even Tiger Woods said these courses are a challenge!

The three golf courses available at Casa de Campo go as follows: the Dye Fore, the Links, and the Teeth of the Dog. Talk about peculiar naming, huh? Well, the names are quite fitting considering the complexity of each of them. All three span across the entirety of the resort, with each possessing at least 15 holes.

Fun fact: the Teeth of the Dog is the Caribbean’s #1 rated golf course, and even #27 in the world.

Kicking Back at the Resort

One thing that often intrigues guests is how enormous Casa de Campo is, so much so that it appears to be a small city itself. With over 7,000 acres of land, Casa de Campo is separated into a few distinct villas. Each villa presents guests with different themed rooms, views, amenities, and fun things to do in Casa de Campo. The similarity between them all is how incredibly easy it is to relax!

You can relax at the resort’s numerous stunning pools, or treat yourself with some rejuvenation at the premier spa on-site! Whether you want to lounge in the sun while gazing at the garden or get a massage and aromatherapy treatments, there’s always a relaxing thing to do in Casa de Campo!

Hit the Beach

No trip to the Caribbean is complete without bathing in the glorious sun rays and dousing yourself in bright blue ocean water. Luckily, Casa de Campo is just a few blocks away from the coastline of the Caribbean Sea, which makes it super easy to take a deep sea adventure at any time of the day!

Take your towel and lay in the sun, or let the waves pour over your skin during your beach activities in Casa de Campo. The resort’s pride and joy, Minitas Beach, is a private sanctuary where you can swim, snorkel, kayak, and more. There are also additional hidden beaches and islands such as Catalina and Saona Islands which are equally as beautiful and entertaining.

Ride Around on a Golf Cart

Regardless of whether you golf or not, one of the most interesting and exciting things to do in Casa de Campo is to ride around on a golf cart!

Renting a golf cart is available at the resort and courses. Depending on where you rent, you might be able to take them across the resort, though others may require you to stay within course limits.

Take a Boat Ride

You can even get a guide to take you to one of three popular destinations: Saona Island, Isla Catalina, and Palmanilla. Each of them offer different activities and views, so take some time to consider which one would fit your itinerary the best.

Have the Night(life) Experience of a Lifetime

Casa de Campo is popular for its golfing, beaches, and aquatic activities, but that doesn’t mean the resort lacks nightlife activities. In fact, there’s plenty of fun things to do at night in Casa de Campo!

There are paddle board rentals all around the coast, with the most popular destination being the nearby Minitas Beach. It’s a great way to cool down if you get too hot while relaxing on the sandy beach, and you’re free to take a dip in the water anytime, then continue on paddle boarding.
