The ultimate Caribbean golf getaway is now on sale.

From <a href="http://blogs.usatoday.com/golfersworld/2007/01/the_ultimate_ca.html">USAToday</a>:

There is lots of golf in the Caribbean, but only one Casa de Campo. With three golf courses, including the famed Teeth of the Dog, perennially ranked as the region’s best, plus the equally good new Dye Fore, no other Caribbean resort offers more golf.

But that’s just the beginning. Casa de Campo, in the Dominican Republic, is a huge, sprawling place with everything from a beach club to an equestrian center, to the world’s largest resort shooting facility, to live Vegas style productions. It has more restaurants and bars than you can count, from the hotel complex to the modern marina ringed with shops and eateries to Altos de Chavon, an entire village built on cliffs and designed to replicate an Italian mountain city. There are certainly some drawbacks to the vast resort, including often indifferent service and one lousy golf course (the Links), but in terms of choices, facilities, activities and golf, there is simply nothing else like it in the islands.

To make it even more enticing, winter rates were just dropped over 25%. Booking can be a bit confusing, since Casa de Campo offers both a la carte and all inclusive packages, but the latter is the way to go, with unlimited meals at tons of restaurants, unlimited booze, including top-shelf drinks at bars, and most activities. For example, through April 8th, a four-night all-inclusive stay in a luxury class room, with all meals, drinks, non-motorized watersports, horseback riding, tennis and one visit to the shooting facility, plus use of a golf cart for getting around throughout your stay is now just $902 per person for the four nights. This package does not include golf, but the golf packages don’t include the all-inclusive services, and it is easier to add golf to the special than vice versa. You can either pay as you go, if you plan on just a round or two, or add an unlimited golf supplement for $124 per day that includes one pre-booked round and unlimited replay, with cart. Bottom line comes out to about $350 per golfer and $225 per non golfer per night for just about everything you can imagine, plus reliably good weather, at the Caribbean’s premier golf resort.
