Casa de Campo players get ready! On September 21st, the 2nd Willy Pumarol Golf Classic tournament will be played on the Links – and with the participation of Willy Pumarol himself all players will have the chance to play with this up and coming Dominican golfer who is the first Dominican player to take part in the Latin American PGA Tour.
This tournament, the 2nd Willy Pumarol Golf Classic tournament “ruta al PGA Tour” is being played in honor of Willy and is part of the build up to his competing in the 2nd part of the Latin American PGA Tour this October.
Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the tournament is that every player will have the chance to actually play alongside Willy Pumarol, “all teams will have the opportunity to meet him, because he will play one shot for each team when the tournament is underway!” Willy Pumarol Sr. told Casa de Campo Living.
This tournament will be played in a pairs scramble format, in categories A (0 to 10 handicap) and B (11 to 24 handicap), male and female, and with the aim of supporting up and coming Dominican golfing talent, will also include golf clinics and training sessions, as well as exhibitions of golf clubs and supplies… and many other activities relating to the wonderful world of golf.
Prizes will be awarded for the “closest to the pin” and the “longest drive”, as well as for a hole in one – which sponsored by Santo Domingo Motors will be a model by luxury brand INFINITI (pictured right). Additional “surprise” prizes will be awarded to players who perform well.
According to Willy Pumarol Senior, father and manager of the host, the event’s goal is to give opportunities to the dedicated young golfers of the Dominican Republic, and to help raise the profile of the Dominican Republic in terms of golf and golfing talent, now that the country is represented in the PGA Tour.
“Men, women, seniors, juniors are all welcome, all types of teams can take part, this tournament is OPEN and is the celebration of the hard work of young professional Willy Pumarol (www.willypumarol.com) on his march to the PGA Tour. Fun is our GOAL!
The idea is to raise money to support the dream of a young Dominican kid, that has achieved all the best success in golf, and now we are aproaching the 2nd part of Latin American PGA Tour.”
— Willy Pumarol Senior, father and manager of Willy Pumarol
The tournament will be played on the Links golf course, Casa de Campo
The funds raised through the tournament will be used to cover the costs of the different stages of the Latin America PGA Tour that start in October this year in Puerto Rico and end in December in Argentina.
Willy Pumarol, apart from being the first Dominican to enter the PGA Tour, was recently named Player Ambassador of the Back9Network chain, that will soon serve as a golf communication platform internationally.
