Attracting golfers from all around the globe, this classic Pete Dye masterpiece - after 38 years - still never ceases to amaze the young and old, pros and amateurs, experts and critics.
Casa de Campo is the only course with seven holes skirting the Caribbean. Built entirely by hand, the Teeth of the Dog opened in 1971 with 6,888 yards and a par 72-layout.
Pete Dye credits its creation to divine intervention, ?I built eleven holes and God built seven" Dye has said, referring to the seven captivating seafront holes.

The Brahma Light Drift Track opens on 19 September. Coming for the opening are Calvin Wan and Casper Canul of the American Drift Association.

Drifting is described in Wikipedia as a driving technique. It is a motor sport where the driver intentionally oversteers, causing loss of traction in the rear wheels through turns while preserving vehicle control and a high exit speed. A car is said to be drifting when the rear slip angle is greater than the front slip angle prior to the corner apex, and the front wheels are pointing in the opposite direction to the turn (e.g. car is turning left, wheels are pointed right or vice versa), and the driver is controlling these factors. As a motor sport, professional drifting competitions are held across the world.
Carlos Rodriguez, president of the Dominican Drift Society says they have been practicing the sport for the past 10 years.
