With the participation of 13 festively decorated golf carts, the 1st Holiday Golf Cart Parade was a huge success and such merry fun, that it will now become an annual Casa de Campo holiday tradition, which we hope will continue to grow ever year!

At 3pm on Saturday afternoon, Santa, a host of Santa’s merry helpers, Mrs Santa Claus, elves, a reindeer and even 2 festive doggies gathered together with Casa de Campo’s villa owners at Minitas Beach and to the tune of “Jingle Bells”, “Feliz Navidad” and “Merry Christmas” set off through Casa de Campo to Altos de Chavón.

This stunning golf cart was so adorned with Christmas decorations and toys, there was barely space the girls to sit in it! This festive golf cart was created by Daniela Hernandez, Maria Jose, Clara Gil, Isabelle and Andrea Widmann and Erin Black and the girls won a 1 month membership at the La Terraza tennis club – donated by the Casa de Campo hotel.

Most Ambitious: Santa’s Giant Hat!

This giant Santa’s hat took the Santoni family hours of hard work, skill and ambition to build, but was well worth it as they won a dinner at the La Cantina restaurant in Altos de Chavón.

Congratulations to everyone who took part! We look forward to seeing you all again next year!
