As is the tradition, the welcome event for the Casa de Campo Sugar golf tournament was hosted by Benetti Yachts with IB Nautica. This elegant cocktail celebration was this year celebrated at the oceanside restaurant of La Casita in the Marina Casa de Campo and was livened up with a seductive tango show.

While, the more than 400 golfers played practice rounds on Wednesday and Thursday the 9th and 10th of April, it wasn’t until the evening of April the 10th at the dinner hosted by Raysa and Alfy Fanjul at Casa Grande that the tournament pairs were decided and the tournament rounds were played on Friday and Saturday the 11th and 12th of April. The lady golfers teed off around the Links and the Dye Fore course, while the gentlemen played on the Teeth of the Dog and the La Romana Country Club golf courses.
