Teeth of the Dog, Dominican Republic

Teeth of the Dog on the Dominican Republic is one of my most memorable trips for golf and pleasure. I stayed at the resort for a week with the family and it was fantastic. We enjoyed the facilities and the private golf cart allocated to each room allowed us to drive around the resort and for dinner down the harbour. The driving range is easy accessible when you stay at the resort and I practised almost daily for some hours.

Teeth of the dog course is next to the driving range and if you also want to play Dye Fore its a short drive away. I played both courses and Teeth of the Dog is by far the best experience as expected. Dye Fore is a different layout set up higher in the hills away from the ocean and I would have preferred to play Teeth twice instead.

I played Teeth on my own with a caddie during the afternoon where the course was quite. The weather was great, but it was more windy than usual according to the caddie. The first hole is a short par 4 which I didnt manage to par, but made bogey.

Eagle putt on 3rd hole

I hit a good drive on 3rd and managed to get 6 iron the green. Eagle putt that I holed and suddenly I was 1 under par.

Famous 5th par 3

It is special to stand on the 5th tee and looking out on the ocean. The wind was strong on this short but tricky par 3.

9th hole a long par 5 where you stand to move more inland. I made birdie to be out in 1 over par 37, which was very nice.

I hit a good drive, but a poor second shot and resulted in a finishing bogey. Overall a good score of 76 with an eagle and 2 birdies. I played in just over 2 hours and had fantastic time on this great course with memorable views.
