Last Saturday the 31st of October, Casa de Campo Living was invited to play in the ‘Torneo entre Amigo,’ which was held at La Estancia golf resort. Approximately 70 golfers played in the tournament, players had travelled from Casa de Campo, La Romana, and even Santo Domingo to play in this event – which was a big success and great fun!

The evening event – the dinner and prize giving began as soon as all the golfers started to come off the course, to relax and enjoy a few drinks before the dinner was ready.
Gladys Quinoñes, who is in charge of the catering for La Estancia as well as having her own catering company ‘Eventos y Catering‘ had decorated the inside of the club house beautifully – with flower decorations and simple, smart place settings. The dinner was served ‘buffet style,’ the perfect option for the many hungry golfers! On offer at the buffet was salad, lasagna, fish, beef, mushroom risotto, roasted vegetables, among other tasty options as well as an array of sinful deserts.
Following a very hearty meal, the prize-giving section of the evening started – beginning with a seemingly never-ending raffle where it felt like nearly everyone won one of the many prizes; vouchers for use in the La Estancia Pro Shop, golfing weekends and hampers of milk! Next, trophies for the tournament winners were given out.
