Nicolas Lorio, president of Wegolf, the travel agency that organizes the championship, commented: “We are more than happy with how the championship was carried out, it far exceeded our expectations. A few years ago we had been developing the idea of a continental tournament under this modality and it was something we created from scratch, a championship that did not exist before. On behalf of the entire team, the participants, volunteers, and the entire Casa de Campo service, we thank you for being the ideal place to host this great event, and we hope it will be for many more years.”
“For Casa de Campo it was an honor to have an event of this magnitude. We received players from different countries, most of whom had never been to Casa de Campo. Both fans and non-golfer companions had the privilege of being able to enjoy our excellent Resort and our majestic golf courses designed by Pete Dye. We are very happy to have this important relationship with WeGolf, one of the most recognized travel companies in Latin America. We are looking forward to having them again in Casa de Campo in 2023”, said Manuel Relancio, Head Pro of Casa de Campo.
The second edition of the championship already has a date: it will be played from May 8 to 12, 2023, and will double the number of participants this year. There will be 240 golfers playing simultaneously on the Teeth of the Dog and the Dye Fore, Pete Dye’s jewels in Casa de Campo.
We look forward to seeing you all next year!
