The Club hosted its Annual Caddie Tournament on July 27th. More than 70 caddies, including some invited from the Casa de Campo Hotel, took part in the event. Competing in three divisions, almost RD$200,000 in prize money was awarded from club members donations.
Winners in the A, B and C Categories were Federico Folche with RD$16,000, Ramón Rivera with RD$14,000 and Diógenes de León with RD$12,000. Club members kept score for the caddies.
The Club also sponsored a Chavón River outing for the caddies and their families. “It’s our small way of saying thanks for their services to the club,” explained Tom Wahl, club manager.
In addition to prize money, caddies were treated to a post tournament party and dinner with 50 cases of Presidente served. The group received donated golf items including clothing, shoes, hats, clubs and bags gifted by members and the club
