With the 37th annual Copa Casa de Campo tennis tournament played just a few short weeks ago (click here for photos), now it’s time for Casa de Campo’s second longest running tournament – the Casa de Campo Open golf tournament.
The Casa de Campo Open golf tournament will be played this week from this Wednesday September 10th to Sunday September 14th.
The Casa de Campo Open golf tournament, founded by Casa de Campo Director of Golf, Gilles Gagnon in 1981 is a Casa de Campo classic – originally played only on the Teeth of the Dog and the Links, but now played on all of Casa de Campo’s world-famous courses – including the 27-hole Dye Fore complex in Altos de Chavón.
Taking part in this year’s tournament are more than 200 players from the United States, Aruba, St. Martin, France, Jamaica, St. Thomas, Curazao, Canada, the Bahamas, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Haiti, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, and of course the Dominican Republic, who joined by their wives, husbands and friends brings the number taking part in the celebrations up to more than 300!
The annual celebration will open with a welcome dinner and cocktail at the Beach Club by Le Cirque on Wednesday. The tournament will then start in earnest at 8am on Thursday morning September 12th with competitors teeing off around Casa de Campo’s golf courses; the Teeth of the Dog, Links and the Dye Fore.
Following 3 days of friendly yet fierce competition, the 33rd annual Casa de Campo Open will come to a close on Saturday evening with a magnificent cocktail, dinner, dance and prize-giving ceremony at the Flamboyant conference center.
But that’s not all! On Sunday morning at 7:30am, the golfers will be given the chance to take part in the annual Caddy/Amateur Scramble, which will this year be played on the Teeth of the Dog.
