Home TO DYE FORE!

If you like challenges, here’s one that might tickle your fancy. 90 holes of golf designed by the legendary architect Pete Dye including the world-famous “Teeth of the Dog” course, with a winner-take-all prize of $90,000 on the line!

Welcome to the inaugural Dye Hard Cup. Along with Teeth Of The Dog—the number-one course in the Caribbean according to Golf Digest—the Dye Hard Cup will be played on the three nines at Dye Fore, spread along cliffs high above the Chavon River, and The Links, featuring spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea. Also included is the resort’s private course, La Romana, another of Dye’s devilish designs. Dye Hard, indeed! 

The format is open to both professionals and amateurs and the 90 holes are played as an individual gross stroke-play competition with one contestant pocketing the whole $90,000. The number of holes in each round will correspond to the number of holes at each Casa de Campo course: The opening round is 27 holes on La Romana. The second round at Dye Fore is also 27 holes. Round three is 18 holes on The Links. And the final 18 is on Teeth Of The Dog, the ultimate test. 

“We are looking forward to hosting some tremendous golfers for six days of great competition and camaraderie,” said Peter Bonell, Chief Marketing Office. “Their talents will be challenged by the beautiful but difficult tests that Pete Dye has blessed us with at Casa de Campo.” 

But there’s more to the Dye Hard Cup than just great golf and a chance at $90,000. Players also get five nights’ lodging and all food and beverage at Casa de Campo. 

The festivities kick off on Sunday, Nov. 10, with a welcome reception at The Beach Club by Le Cirque, the resort’s leading restaurant and lounge, nestled against the Caribbean Sea. The all-inclusive registration fee for contestants is $5,000. Non-golfers are $3,000, and instead of golf have unlimited access to horseback riding, tennis, and non-motorized watersports at the resort’s private Minitas Beach. If you ever wanted to Dye Hard, this could be the way to do it.
