A Great Short Drive

The Buzz usually doesn’t do much traffic reporting, but a new highway is destined to make life easier for traveling golfers. It’s called the La Romana Bypass, it’s in the Dominican Republic, and it’s only eight miles long. But upon opening in late November, the four-lane highway should reduce driving time between the capital city of Santo Domingo (and its airport) and La Romana—site of Casa de Campo, the top golf resort in the Caribbean and home of Pete Dye’s legendary “Teeth of the Dog” course (that’s the 15th hole, above)—to an hour, less than half what the trip takes now. The “Circunvalacion de La Romana” also will cut the drive from Santo Domingo to Punta Cana to under two hours. To meet the December deadline and the start of the winter rush, more than 1,300 workers are going 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Gracias!
