Casa de Campo welcomes Caribbean golfers
Casa de Campo is hosting the 18th annual Caribbean Golf Classic, an event organized by Fedogolf (the Dominican golf organization) and conducted by the Caribbean Golf Association this 17-21 April.
The tournament, regarded as one of the top golf events in the Caribbean, will be played on Casa de Campo's three most famous Pete Dye designed golf courses: Teeth of the Dog, Links and Dye Fore.
The tournament is a great opportunity to showcase the talent of Caribbean island golfers and brings them together to build relationships. Teams from the Bahamas, Barbados, Cayman Islands, Jamaica, Organization of Eastern Caribbean States, Puerto Rico, Trinidad and Tobago, Turks and Caicos and the US Virgin Islands will join the Dominican hosts.
The Caribbean Golf Classic is played individually and in teams, with an unlimited number of players from each country. Men compete for the Robert Grell trophy, and the women compete for the Dessie Henry trophy. A third category, named "Ladies Team Championship," will be played to win the Jodi Munn Barrow trophy.
Teams and players from each participating country will play 18 holes each day. Players are divided into flights, based upon handicap and gender, and play a Modified Stableford competition.
The team/country with the most points wins the George Noon Cup.

Latin American PGA in the Dominican Republic
The Dominican Golf Federation announces the celebration of the Fourth Dominican Open, part of the PGA Latin American Tour, for the second time. The tournament will take place at the Cana Bay course at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana. The president of the PGA Tour Latin America, Jack Warfield was in Santo Domingo to announce that the event will be played from 26 May to 1 June 2013 at the Jack Nicklaus-designed course. More than 140 professional golfers from nine countries will play four rounds of golf at the 18-hole course. A Pro-Am tournament is scheduled for Tuesday, 28 May. Prize money is US$150,000. This is the ninth round of the PGA Tour Latin America.
Pros Willy Pumarol and Julio Santos will be playing for the Dominican Republic.
The PGA Latin America is seen by its promoters as an opportunity to help in the further development of elite players across the region. The timing for the Dominican Open is right, especially now that golf will be again included in the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games in 2016.
Players coming for the tournament are mostly from Latin America, but players from the US to Australia have registered. A total of 24 countries are represented this year, up from 19 last year as new members have joined from Australia, Canada, Ireland, South Korea, Sweden, Wales and Taiwan.

Long weekend for Labor Day

This means it will be celebrated on Monday, 29 April, converting the weekend of Friday, 26 April to Monday, 29 April into a long weekend. With the peak foreign holiday season over, local hotels are offering a range of packages in a bid to attract local travelers. Tourists should also take note the weather is great during this time of the year, and rates are slightly lower.
