Miss Spain in DR
Miss Spain 2008 has moved to the beaches of the DR at the invitation of the Spanish Globalia hotel and airline group (Air Europa, Air Dominicana and Oasis hotels). The 52 candidates, who will compete for the right to represent Spain at the 2008 Miss Universe contest are here until 13 February and will tour cultural and nature sites, which will provide lovely settings for photographs.
Francisco Perez, regional director of Miss Spain, said they would be visiting the beaches of Boca Chica, Juan Dolio, Bayahibe and other parts of the country. The group is also traveling with 28 Spanish journalists.
The Ministry of Tourism is collaborating in the promotion. The Miss Spain contest will be televised on Television Espanola's Channel 5.
This promotion follows last year's Miss France, which brought the French beauty contestants to the DR for visits to Casa de Campo in La Romana, and Samana.
Faldo Legacy Course
The new golf course at Roco Ki Resort is the Faldo Legacy Course, the first designed by Nick Faldo in the DR, using local vegetation and highlighting the spectacular landscape. The Troon course is half way to completion, and its first nine holes are already playable. Holes 17 and 18 are designed to take a golfer's breath away. No. 17 is a short par three to a green, neatly placed on a rocky cliff between 90 and 135 yards away, with waves crashing all around. Construction is progressing on the course so that it may fully open jointly with the Westin Roco Ki, scheduled for a summer opening.
