On Saturday the 10th of April, the Sugar Open invitational golf tournament came to a final close following 4 days of golf and 4 nights of lavish cocktail parties and dinners.

The prize-giving ceremony and dinner was held at the La Romana Country Club in Casa de Campo, where the dining tables had been set up around the swimming pool and decorated with beautiful flowers and lights.

Inside the Country Club the Sugar Bazaar stalls remained open so that those ladies and men unable to attend the Ladies Luncheon were able to indulge in a little shopping as well!

As this year was the 25th anniversary of the first Sugar Open, special 25th anniversary Sugar Tournament frames were awarded to all the previous winners of the tournament starting from 25 years ago! In the photo at the top you can see these frames.

The prize-giving ceremony was conducted by Alfie Fanjul, who heads the event every year.

We are currently waiting to receive the photos taken by our CasaLife photographer during the prize-giving ceremony – so that we can publish them here for you!

In the meantime, here are my photos of the evening:
