Casa de Campo’s mecca for golfers around the world provides enthusiasts with plenty of opportunities to play. Recently, the resort has been host to the 3rd Annual Latin America Pro-Am, Grupo Viamar’s 1st Invitational Tournament, and tomorrow it will be the center for the Fundación MIR Family Weekend for Life golf tournament. A few short weeks from now, approximately 200 golfers are expected to participate in the 36th Casa de Campo Open that begins September 13th.
Founded by Gilles Gagnon, Director of Golf Emeritus, the tournament is the oldest and most popular golf event in Casa de Campo. Frequently sold out, it draws the participation of players and spectators from the United States, Aruba, St. Martin, France, Jamaica, St. Thomas, Curazao, Canada, the Bahamas, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Haiti, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic.
This year, registration and practice rounds begin on September 13th with a welcome reception that evening at La Terraza Dye Fore. The tournament will play on all three of Casa de Campo’s world famous courses, the Teeth of the Dog, the Dye Fore, and what will be the recently renovated Links, which is due to open after regular maintenance on September 3rd. This event is a 54 hole Individual Stroke Play competition using the Stableford Scoring system with classifications A, B, C, and D for the gentlemen and A, B, and C for ladies.
