Last Wednesday April 9th, Benetti Yachts hosted a gorgeous oceanside cocktail to welcome the more than 400 guests of the 29th annual Casa de Campo Sugar golf tournament hosted by Alfy Fanjul.
Over 200 golfers playing in teams of 2 took part in the annual golf tournament, headed by Alfy Fanjul, President and CEO of the Central Romana Corporation in La Romana, which raises funds for the Fundación MIR.
Arriving to the Casa de Campo resort on Wednesday April 9th, the enthusiastic golfers headed straight out onto the courses for a practice round on the Teeth of the Dog, Links, Dye Fore or the La Romana Country Club, before convening later that evening at the Marina Casa de Campo for the welcome cocktail.
This year, IBI Yachts selected La Casita in the Marina Casa de Campo as the location for the gathering, and it could not have been more perfect. Overlooking the majestic Marina Casa de Campo lined with yacht after yacht glowing in the moonlight, guests enjoyed Chivas 18 and Atlantico rum and a mesmerising tango performance, while getting to know their fellow competitors.
Acting as hosts of the occasion was Tommaso Bilotta, the Azimut-Benetti Vice-President for the USA, as well as Mauro Caslini President and CEO of IB Nautica, who took a few moments to welcome everyone alongside the tournament host, Alfy Fanjul.
Also sponsoring this enchanting evening was Dedon, Chivas 18, Pratesi and IBI Yachts.
Following the welcome cocktail with Benetti, the 29th annual Casa de Campo Sugar golf tournament continued with practice rounds on Thursday, and the tournament rounds on Friday and Saturday. Ladies teeing off around the Dye Fore (Lakes/Marina), as well as the Links, while the gentlemen golfers will play on the Teeth of the Dog and the La Romana Country Club. The event then came to a close with the prize-giving and dinner party at the La Romana Country Club on Saturday evening.
