In honor of the 3rd Annual Latin America Pro-Am golf tournament, one-hundred amateurs and pros came to Casa de Campo last week to play on the Teeth of the Dog from August 8-11th. Playing in Best Ball Net and Gross formats, twenty teams composed of families and friends competed with others from countries throughout Latin America. Sunny skies held out for them as they rose early and appreciated the resort’s magnificent views on the green.
