Paul Burke Dye, youngest son of Pete and Alice Dye, designed the 18-hole layout at La Estancia Golf Resort and it opened for play in 2008, some thirty-seven years after his father’s celebrated Teeth of the Dog course was unveiled at the nearby Casa de Campo resort.

Set within a residential estate on an undulating landscape near the Chavón River and the beautiful Tanamá ravine, the fairways are routed around a number of canyons and gullies and it’s safe to say that a fair amount of soil was shifted in order to form many of the playing corridors on such difficult terrain.

The short par three 5th is a standout hole on the front nine, playing downhill to a raised green that’s perched on the edge of a gorge. Water comes into play at the last two holes on the card; at the 17th, a pond fronts the front right hand side of the putting surface and a small lake runs down the left side of the fairway from tee to green on the home hole.
