On Saturday, April 23rd the golfers and guests of the 37th annual Sugar Golf Tournament celebrated the end of another very successful event. The magnificent 4-day affair hosted by Alfy Fanjul brought together some of the world’s most interesting and successful businessmen and women.

Welcome cocktails

With the pressure of the competition behind them, golfers arrived at the LRCC for the party and prize-giving ceremony, ready to relax, drink, and get on the dance floor! Upon arrival, guests first encountered the MIR Bazaar which filled the clubhouse with booths from local and international vendors and all kinds of tempting products. A portion of all sales from the bazaar went to benefit Fundación MIR. After a little browsing and shopping, guests sipped on cocktails by the pool, with numerous “first-timers” to the Sugar Golf Tournament mingling with veterans who have competed for over three decades. The atmosphere was very friendly and fun. Before the buffet-style dinner, Alfy Fanjul took the opportunity to once again welcome and thank his guests, happy to have had another great year.

Awards Ceremony

Along with the help of his daughters, Crista Ryan and Lilian Fernandez, he presented numerous prizes to the winners. First up, were the ladies from the Sugar Tennis Tournament, followed by ladies golf, and last but not least men’s golf. The ladies received beautiful jewelry from Everett’s Designs (based in Altos de Chavón and longtime supporters of the tournament), as well as lovely embroidered napkins from Batey. Male golfers, on the other hand, received La Romana Country Club pins and shiny silver trophies to mark the occasion.  After the awards were handed out and all the fabulous pictures captured, the band quickly set up for a lively evening surrounding the pool that had everyone on their feet and dancing the night away! It was a wonderful event to end an extraordinary weekend!
