If the freezing winter temperatures are starting to get to you, don’t despair! Take a seat, pour your favorite ONE ROQ cocktail, and start planning your next golf trip. Although it may be cold in your part of the world, there are multiple world-class golf destinations where you can enjoy a game of golf in a sunny setting. Here are a few examples of balmy golf destinations that offer the perfect mix of good golf, memorable dining experiences, and comfortable accommodation.
Casa de Campo, Dominican Republic
If you like the idea of escaping the winter cold by embarking on a Caribbean getaway, open your browser and type in Casa de Campo. This premium resort is a top golf destination. It offers three Pete Dye golf courses that provide stunning views of pristine white beaches and the Caribbean sea. The three golf courses are Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, and The Links, of which Teeth of the Dog is the most well-known.
Apart from being ranked the #1 course in the Caribbean by Golf Magazine, Golf Digest has ranked Teeth of the Dog 27th in the “World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses.” Seven of the course’s 18 holes are scattered among the rocks and coral of the Dominican coastline, which means you can expect an adventurous and challenging game of golf.
As far as accommodation goes, you can either book a luxurious hotel room/suite or, if you’re playing golf with friends, a gorgeous oceanfront villa. The resort offers seven quality restaurants where you can enjoy anything from sushi to Mediterranean food to Dominican cuisine. After a day on the golf course, you can also unwind at one of the resort’s bars or lounges.
