We sent Georgie Bingham & her new husband off on a Honeymoon golf trip to Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic, we asked for her feedback on her experience upon her return.

Why did you choose the Dominican Republic?

We booked a relatively late-in-the-day honeymoon at Casa de Campo via Your Golf Travel. The Dominican Republic is a brilliant destination when you want hot weather in the British winter; it’s one flight and very easy to get to.

Casa de Campo

What was the accommodation like?

Casa de Campo is an enormous resort complex so big every room comes with a golf buggy to get around on whether you are there to golf or not. The distance between the two ends of the resort is nearly half an hour which means a huge amount of variation (and lots go shuttling!).

Casa de Campo Premier Suite

We stayed in a Premier suite which was in every way perfect; modern, recently built or refurbished, with every mod con. We took a full inclusive deal and were not disappointed with the food and drink – there’s a huge range of restaurants and food available and the breakfast and lunch buffets were especially good. The hotel has every facility you could want, a huge range of sports, a concierge service, spa, salon, and really good health facilities and gym.

What did you think of the golf courses?

There are 3 golf courses available to hotel guests and we played each course twice. Every golfer is assigned a caddy, we tipped them about $50 a round which is more than the lowest recommended amount. They were great fun and every round was different due to our caddies (which I liked).

Teeth of the Dog Course

Teeth of the Dog is probably the most famous course at Casa de Campo, 7 of its holes hug the coast giving it a real bucket list feel – and if you are on form it’s an absolute treat to play (albeit probably the slowest course because there’s a lot of photo opportunities!!) If you are wayward it’s a tough old track. It’s received high praise and high rankings in the golf media and golf travel world and it’s a must play.

Dye Fore Course

Dye Fore was my surprise favourite of the holiday; located up in the cliffs about a km away from the sea, it has extraordinary views over a river canyon and rainforests and is tough but spectacularly beautiful. Dye Fore is actually a 27 hole course but we played the Chavon and Marina 9s twice – Chavon is the most spectacular as four of the first six holes feature a drop off a cliff a couple of hundred feet if you slice. I really loved this course, it was tough, it was harder to get and stay on the greens but they were fantastically fair with a putter which I enjoyed. It was my pick of the three courses.

The Links Course

The Links is the final and most understated course at Casa de Campo but isn’t a walk over or unspectacular either – as with all the courses here it was immaculate, and there was so much water to negotiate that made it really tricky. Unlike Dye Fore the pins were more fun for target practice; staying on the green wasn’t as hard as it was above sea level!

The Links at Casa de Campo

You do get paired up on the tee at Casa de Campo which we found fun, it’s full of Americans who bomb down for weekends and golf days so it can be quite rowdy and have a bit of a frat-boy feel to it at times – but the beauty of the resort and the golf was the sheer size means that you can always choose to go somewhere else to golf, sunbathe, eat, drink, enjoy the sunset.

Would you recommend Casa de Campo to your friends?

We thought it was incredible value, we absolutely loved the staff and the service and ate like Kings. We’d thoroughly recommend it.
