It has always been said that the key to success is the consistency… and here in Casa de Campo this is certainly true in the case of the Casa de Campo Open Golf Tournament, Casa de Campo’s longest running golf tournament, this year marking it’s 33rd year.
The 33rd edition of the Casa de Campo Open Golf Tournament was played from Wednesday the 10th to Sunday the 16th of September at the golf courses; Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore and The Links.
The Casa de Campo Open Golf Tournament was first played in 1981, and since then has been one of the Casa de Campo’s most outstanding golf tournaments, attracting players from all over the world, who every year enjoy the breathtaking golf courses in Casa de Campo; Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore and The Links. This year we were visited by more than 200 golfers from the United States, Aruba, St. Martin, France, Jamaica, St. Thomas, Curacao, Canada, Bahamas, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Haiti, Italy, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Australia and Dominican Republic.
The tournament was simultaneously celebrated on all three of Casa de Campo’s magnificent Pete Dye designed golf courses; Teeth of the Dog, Links and Dye Fore, with one round of golf played on each course each day – an excellent way of not only trying all the challenging golf courses Casa de Campo has to offer, but also of enjoying the unique beauty and stunning views each course has to offer.
For the opening of the oldest and most popular golf tournament in the history of Casa de Campo, participants enjoyed a welcome dinner at The Beach Club by Le Cirque at Minitas Beach.
Following the inauguration and practice rounds across Casa de Campo on Wednesday, the golfers played the 3-day tournament from Thursday to Saturday, following which the prize-giving ceremony was held at the Flamboyant Conference Center at the Casa de Campo Hotel. During the prize-giving ceremony the players enjoyed a cocktail and a delicious dinner.
Ricardo Tovar got a Hole-in-One on the Dye Fore!
