On Saturday, January 14th, the La Romana Country Club golf course in Casa de Campo hosted over 100 players participating in the Fundación MIR Magical Splendor Golf Tournament 2023.

The tournament has been a tradition in the community and thanks to the generous participation from the golfing community, the more than 2,000 children enrolled in MIR schools will be able to continue with their education. 

Upon arrival, the players were greeted by the staff of the Fundación MIR and then, they all had the opportunity to practice their swings and putts before starting the tournament. During the tournament, the players also received numerous goodies and treats thanks to the event sponsors. 

The Fundación MIR Golf Tournament was played “Scramble” style, with teams working together to obtain the lowest score on each hole together.  Each teammate hits a drive and then the best of the four balls is then played.  The teamwork style of scramble tournaments keeps the game fun and more community-focused than individual score-driven. It is the perfect format for fundraisers, keeping the energy all about teamwork and the community! 

The tournament may be more about putting the FUN into fundraising, but the competition was still in the air!

The Golf Tournament Awards Ceremony took place during this year’s Magical Splendor Gala event that evening where the winners were presented with trophies and prizes.

Below are the results of the 2023 Fundación MIR’s Annual Magical Splendor Golf Tournament.
