Dueños 2016 Golf Tournament

This post is also available in: Spanish

Always one of the most popular and well-attended activities of the Dueños celebration is the golf tournament which was a great success this year! Plus, it featured another golf event that attracted many golf lovers and even beginners – Night Golf! Dueños 2016 was definitely a fun filled weekend with something for everyone.

On Friday October 28th, after the welcome cocktail where all the Dueños received their goodie bags and umbrellas, most of them headed to the Teeth of the Dog driving range. The popularity of Night Golf has increased considerably with more residents and visitors of Casa de Campo spending their Friday evenings practicing their swing with multicolored LED golf balls. There are plenty more reasons to try this fun sport too – music, drinks, BBQ and an animation team that includes an LED lit man walking around! The unique experience  is for the whole family, and even allows players to practice their short game with putting. Everyone had a blast and it was a great end to the first day of Dueños weekend festivities.

The next day, Saturday October 29th, we rose early to enjoy the excitement of the Dueños golf tournament and prepare for the long day’s sport under the sun. The tournament played on two of Casa de Campo’s world renowned courses: the Teeth of the Dog, the Dominican Republic’s #1 golf course, and on the impressive Links course.  In the men’s division, Gustavo Betances Pichardo earned the gross champion title, while Enrique Ricart and Gustavo Betances took home the second and third place gross champion awards, respectively. For the ladies, Maricarmen Morales happily earned gross champion, and Margarita Zapata came in second.
