Teeth of the Dog

Casa de Campo, Dominican Republic

This resort put the Dominican Republic into the consciousness of the "course collecting" American golfer back in the 1970s, when trailblazing modernist architect Pete Dye designed Teeth of the Dog.

Rates start at $295, 18 holes of golf for $135; 855/877-3643 or
