The 2nd annual DR Golf Exchange is taking place from the 5th to the 10th of September, opening with activities in Casa de Campo this weekend.
The Dominican Golf Travel Exchange unites tour operators, members of the press and golf professionals from all across the world, as well as representatives of the Dominican Republic’s 25 fine golf courses, with the aim of bolstering golf tourism.
This special event will open this Saturday September the 5th in true Casa de Campo style with a chic cocktail and dinner around the pool of the Casa de Campo hotel. [Last year, a similar gathering took place for the inaugural DR Golf Exchange – click here for photos.]
