The restoration will be done by Jerry Pate Design, the company owned by the winner of the 1976 U.S. Open and the 1982 Players Championship. After that latter victory, Pate threw Dye into the water on the new Players Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass that Dye had recently designed ... The updates to Teeth of the Dog will be the first large-scale work to the course since it opened.

"Pete Dye's Teeth of the Dog at Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic is widely considered the best course in the Caribbean. It opened in 1971 and Pete and his wife Alice, who had a winter home on the course, continued to tweak the layout for nearly half a century. Pro golfer Jerry Pate was the lowest scorer when USA won the 1974 World Amateur Team Championship on the course, and he has been a regular visitor since. He was a friend of the Dyes — he and Pete memorably shared a dip in the lake at the eighteenth at TPC Sawgrass following Pete's victory at the inaugural Players tournament in 1982 — and with his senior designer Steve Dana is now course consultant for Casa de Campo. In 2025, Pate and Dana will renovate the Teeth of the Dog."
