The 38th edition of the annual Casa de Campo Sugar Golf Tournament, hosted by Alfy Fanjul, was an incredible success. Nearly 300 international golfers gathered from April 12th to 15th, 2023, to participate in the tournament, which took place on various courses, including the Links, Dye Fore, Teeth of the Dog, and La Romana Country Club.
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! The atmosphere was electric with friendly banter and laughter, making it a fun-filled evening. 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. 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.
With the help of his daughters Crista Ryan and Lilian Fernandez and long-time friend Jamie Niven, Mr. Fanjul presented numerous prizes to the winners of the tennis, padel tennis and golf tournaments, including beautiful jewelry from Everett Designs for the women, custom-made suit by Paolo Pontiggia for the men and trophies.
After dinner, the band quickly set up for a lively evening surrounding the pool that had everyone on their feet and dancing the night away.
Overall, it was the perfect ending to an extraordinary week and a fantastic event, with golfers and guests enjoying the festivities.
