Casa de Campo Resort & Villas Becomes Official Destination Partner of the Swag Series

LA ROMANA, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC – Casa de Campo Resort & Villas – home to the Caribbean’s premier, luxury golf experiences, including its iconic Teeth of the Dog ranked No. 20 in Golf Digest’s “Top 100 Courses in the World” – announces its partnership with Swag Golf to become the exclusive destination partner of the golf brand’s inaugural competition, the Swag Series, operated by Am Golf Trips.

Swag Golf is a premium, limited-edition golf accessory, equipment and apparel company. The Swag Series will feature 14 events across the U.S., fielding 100 players in a unique, 18-hole, two player better ball format. The series opened for registration on Feb. 15 and culminates during its National Championship event in October at Big Cedar Lodge in Branson, Mo.

Casa de Campo prizes will be offered throughout the competition. They include a four-night stay for two people and multiple rounds of golf on Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore and The Links for anyone who makes a hole-in-one on any of the designated Par-3s. The winners of the series will also be offered a four-night stay for two in the resort’s superior rooms and include the same golf experience. For any Swag Series participant booking a stay at the resort, there are many complimentary value-adds each guest can tap into. All prize information can be found here.

The Swag Series will consist of two divisions: gross and net. Teams of two, each playing their own ball, will have a chance to compete for each prize. A verified USGA handicap is only required to compete in the net division.

This customized partnership between Casa de Campo Resort & Villas and Swag Golf was conceived and brokered by The Erlick Group, a New York-based entertainment sponsorship agency that has represented an expansive portfolio of distinctive properties for 30 years.

Teeth of the Dog has long been a “bucket list” layout for those seeking to play one of the top 50 golf courses in the world. Dye’s design hallmarks are all present: railroad ties, vast waste areas, peninsula greens and tees, hand-sculpted putting surfaces and a unique assortment of pot bunkers. “The Heaven 7” oceanfront holes are astoundingly beautiful, causing Dye to famously quip: “I created 11 holes and God created seven.”

The resort’s world-class Golf Learning Center is a “must visit” when on property. Highlighted by Trackman and BODITRAK technology, it features two indoor hitting bays for rapid game improvement, year-round training, individual and group golf lessons and schools, and expert club-fitting and repair. Residing on 21 acres of “pure grass,” the PGA Tour-quality facility also showcases practice greens for honing putting, chipping and pitching skills as well as unlimited use of the pristine outdoor range for full shots. On-course instruction is also available.
