Tackling ‘Teeth of the Dog’ in the Dominican Republic
During our visit to La Romana in the Dominican Republic we awoke early one morning to meet with a record-breaking group of golfers (28) and head to Casa de Campo to tackle “Teeth of the Dog”.
It is a beautiful course and many of the back 9 holes were sea-side and gorgeous.
There were a couple more waterfront holes on the front 9 and all of the par 3s paralleled the water. It was very exciting to confront the wind and the water but I managed to finish the day without losing one ball!
We were in the first foursome and so we had time for a drink and a sandwich before the rest of the players finished. It is a beautiful spot and we thoroughly enjoyed the day.
It was a pretty quiet afternoon back on the Ship. After watching a glorious sunset, we went to the Plaza for a musical performance by a local group which had amazing guitarists. We then adjourned to the pool deck for a casual dinner.
The following day was a “Marina Day” which was spent on Catalina Island, a few miles from La Romana. There were tented areas with picnic tables and a large, thatch-covered bar with small stools. We were greeted at the dock with singers and a special rum cocktail which was surprisingly good.
The Ship staff had been hard at work bringing linens and a delicious buffet lunch ashore. Soon after we finished and were reclining on the beach under our umbrella when it began to rain. About 90% of the guests left but we stuck it out because we knew it would clear. It eventually did and we spent the rest of the afternoon in the clear waters watching one of our barmen juggle wine bottles and cocktail shakers in a very professional way. Lots of fun.
