Central Romana team wins DR Open ProAm
On Wednesday May 14th, the DR Open in Casa de Campo was officially inaugurated with the ProAm golf tournament, which was won by the team of golfers representing the Central Romana Corporation; Juan Velásquez, Julio Zeller and Carlixto Gabriel playing with professional golfer Nelson Ledesma from Argentina.
With the participation of approximately 100 golfers from across the world, the golfers of the DR Open ProAm teed off around the Teeth of the Dog at 9am. Each group of 4 consisted of 3 amateur golfers, mostly familiar faces of the Dominican golfing community, and 1 professional golfer competing in the DR Open.
The DR Open golf tournament, being organised by the Dominican Federation of Golf (FEDOGOLF) is the 7th stop of the NEC Series – PGA Tour Latinoamérica, and is the first time the Casa de Campo resort has hosted a professional golf tournament.
As the ProAm golf tournament was part of the DR Open, which is a PGA event, the professional golfers were not permitted to use golf carts, and instead walked the entire 18 holes of the Teeth of the Dog, while the 3 amateurs playing alongside them were permitted to use their carts, as was the press, much to my relief!
