On Wednesday, April 20th, golfers headed down to La Marina to celebrate the opening of the 37th Annual Sugar Golf Tournament hosted by Alfy Fanjul. IBI Yachts with Azimut Yachts presented the event at La Casita in La Marina and featured some of their megayachts. With a beautiful view and live music, this breezy seaside restaurant was the perfect location for the nautical-themed celebration. After arriving early in the day for practice rounds on the golf courses, many players and their spouses enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere getting to know their competitors a bit better, and getting up to date with long-time friends. Over 200 players participated in the Sugar Golf Tournament this year and were welcomed by Alfy Fanjul who also encouraged anyone interested in the spectacular yachts on display to contact Mauro Caslini, president of IBI Nautica. The yachts served as a beautiful backdrop to the party setting, fulfilling another great start to the Casa de Campo Sugar golf tournament. This edition continued with practice rounds on Thursday and tournament rounds on Friday and Saturday. Ladies teed off around the Dye Fore (Lakes/ Marina) as well as the Links, while gentlemen golfers played on the Teeth of the Dog and the La Romana Country Club. Guests also enjoyed a weekend of shopping at the MIR Sugar Bazaar in the La Romana Country Club clubhouse and many social events. A prize-giving ceremony and dinner party at the La Romana Country Club brought the tournament to a close on Saturday evening. Stay tuned for all the photos!
