Casa de Campo, who for the last 6 years has been awarded the “World’s Leading Golf Resort” at the World Travel Awards, has now been honored as one of the “Top 25 Golf Resorts of the World” by LINKS Magazine.
The listing, which will appear in the fall issue of LINKS, is part of the magazine’s special Anniversary Edition, which singles out significant people, places, and moments in golf past and present. In the listing of the world’s top resorts, Casa de Campo is the only property from the Caribbean.
In describing the resorts on this exclusive list, author Brian McCallen wrote, “It takes a serendipitous location coupled with peerless golf, a splendid hotel, excellent dining, and impeccable service to qualify.”
“It’s an honor to be included in this article,” said Gilles Gagnon, director of golf operations for Casa de Campo. “But in all honesty, we believe we deserve to be included. Our collection of Pete Dye-designed golf courses is second to none not just in the Caribbean but around the world.”
“LINKS is the most respected publication in the world of golf resorts and real estate,” said Peter J. Bonell, Chief Marketing Officer. “They made their selections without regards to advertising or any financial considerations, and we applaud them for that. We are very grateful for making their amazing list.”
Casa de Campo’s first annual DYE HARD CUP!
Later this year, from the 10th to the 15th of November, Casa de Campo is holding the first annual Dye Hard Cup to be played across Casa de Campo’s 90 holes of golf; the Teeth of the Dog (18 holes), Links (18 holes), the Dye Fore (27 holes) and the La Romana Country Club (27 holes), with a winner-take-all prize of $90,000!
Earlier this year, Casa de Campo was named the Caribbean’s best resort, and its “Teeth of the Dog” the best golf course, by Caribbean Journal, the leading digital newspaper covering the Caribbean region. Those are just the latest media honors for the resort and its courses. Others include; prestigious Gold Tee Award given by Meetings and Conventions (M&C) magazine; the “Certificate of Excellence 2013″ by Trip Advisor as well as the “Worlds Leading Golf Resort” by the World Travel Awards for the 6th consecutive year and the “Caribbean’s Leading Golf Resort”- for the 7th time, “Dominican Republic’s Leading Golf Resort” – for the 9th consecutive year, and the “Dominican Republic’s Leading Hotel” – for the 4th time.
