The beautiful inland Links course at Casa de Campo may not seem as exciting or challenging as its sea-side and cliff-hugging siblings, but don´t be deceived.
The Links is interior on the Resort property with spectacular views of the Caribbean and the Resort. Its moderately hilly track, with tall bahia and guinea grass roughs plus multiple sand traps keep you on your toes. Thought by some to be reminiscent of traditional British and Scottish courses, there are several lagoons and even lakes with wading birds. There are five holes where water comes into play on this course making it a challenge unto itself.
Ask any golfer who has played The Links and you will hear that this course is equally as challenging as the Teeth. It´s a demanding, merciless course for the unwary, with water coming into play on five holes.
This year, the Links will be closed for renovation beginning May 2011. Mr. Dye will do a major renovation which will include changing the grass on the greens, new irrigation system, bunkers, tees, etc. The Links course is scheduled to reopen March 15, 2012.
