The British Chamber of Commerce announced that the 17th annual Traditional British Golf Cup is set to be played for the second consecutive time on the Teeth of the Dog here in Casa de Campo.
The prestigious tournament will take place on Thursday May 16th on the Teeth of the Dog in Casa de Campo and Steven Fisher, UK ambassador in the Dominican Republic, is the man in charge of the inauguration ceremony. Jose A. Rodríguez, President of the Chamber said “The tournament has become a tradition in Dominican golf and also serves to share and strengthen business relationships in a cheerful, relaxed ambience with plenty of camaraderie.” And also noted that the event is a great accomplishment since it marks 17 years since its first edition in 1998.
