La Romana, D.R. - Casa de Campo Resort & Villas will once again host the Casa de Campo Open golf tournament from September 14-18, 2016, bringing some of the region’s best players to two of the Caribbean’s most highly regarded golf venues.
This international golf tournament, now in its 35th year, is part of the Casa de Campo Resort & Villas tradition and will be played this year at the world-renowned Teeth of the Dog and Dye Fore golf courses. Designed by Pete Dye and built in the early 1970s, Teeth of the Dog is meticulously hand-carved from the rugged rock and coral of the Dominican coastline, and has earned its reputation as a hard-fought and challenging course. Dye Fore, also a Pete Dye-designed course, is a challenging cliff-side course, characterized by spectacular views of the Dominican mountains, the Chavón River, the Marina at Casa de Campo, and Altos de Chavón.
Robert Birtel, director of golf operations for Casa de Campo, commented, "We are delighted to once again host this long-established event, a tradition among our friends and family. Casa de Campo is recognized as the top golf resort in Latin America with three of the best golf courses in the region, making this event an honorable competition. ”
This event is a 54-hole Individual Stroke Play competition using the Stableford scoring system. There will be both net and gross division per classification for both men and women. Amateur Prizes will be awarded for both net and gross winners per flight. First place will be awarded in the senior categories.
“In addition to the tournament itself, we have prepared a wide variety of activities and entertainment for all participants and guests,” added Birtel.
