We’ve written this piece as a supplement to our guide about Rich’s favourite golf courses on the island. Click here to read more about how the Dominican Republic has become a serious golfing destination for amateurs and professionals alike.
Rich and I live twenty minutes away from Puerto Plata, where the PGA Latin America Tour held their first DR Open, the first event of its kind here. This comes part in parcel due to the rejuvenation projects which have been taking place all across the North Coast of the Dominican Republic. This has solidified the island’s standing as a serious golfing destination.
The tournament was held from June 8 to 11, at the Playa Dorada Golf Course. We attended, although to be honest, I’m not much of a golfer myself… but Rich took some beautiful shots for everyone to see. Take a look!
