The Caribbean Golf Classic will be played on all three of Casa de Campo’s prestigious golf courses; the Teeth of the Dog, the Dye Fore and the Links this week from Wednesday May 21st to Saturday May 25th.

This tournament conducted by the Caribbean Golf Association will be held for the third consecutive year in the Dominican Republic with Dominican Golf Federation (FEDOGOLF) as host. Since the tournament was founded in 1996, Casa de Campo has been the host country a total of 11 times, but the tournament has also taken place in Puerto Rico twice, Jamaica three times, as well as West Palm Beach Florida and the Bahamas. Certainly seems like the Caribbean Golf Association love Casa de Campo to keep wanting to host the event here!

A total of 10 Caribbean countries, all members of the Caribbean Golf Association (CGA), will be taking part: Barbados, Bahamas, Cayman Islands, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Trinidad & Tobago,Turks & Caicos, U.S. Virgin Islands, Organization of Eastern Caribbean States and the Dominican Republic.

The Caribbean Golf Classic started in 1996 and is an individual and team event competed for by teams of unlimited number of players from each participating member country, playing eighteen holes each day. Players are divided into flights based upon handicap and sex and play Modified Stableford competition. The men’s teams will compete for the Robert Grell Trophy and the ladies for the Jodi Munn Barrow Trophy. Individual prizes will be awarded in each flight, and the team (country) with the most points wins the George Noon Trophy.

Last year the US Virgin Islands took home the trophies for both the George Noon Trophy and the Robert Grell Trophy, while Trinidad and Tobago were the winners of the Jodi Munn Barrow Trophy. 

The Dominican ladies team representing the country in this event consists of Debra Luna Pichardo, Vilma H. de Herrera, Nazaret de Ramírez and Lissette López Nieto de Carrasco.

Besides being a competition between the different teams representing the various CGA Member Countries, it is a social gathering that promotes camaraderie and good times between golfers of all skills and levels of play.

Whilst in Casa de Campo the competitors of the tournament will be staying in Casa de Campo’s “golf lodge” rooms as well as the newly renovated “Elite” rooms and as they are only playing 18 holes per day will have plenty of time for enjoying the Casa de Campo resort’s fabulous facilities and restaurants such as Minitas Beach, the Shooting Centre and the Beach Club by Le Cirque! We hope they all have a fantastic time!
