The first “Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship” will be held between May 30 and June 5 of this year. Approximately 156 national and international players will compete for an overall prize of US$625,000.
The golf course is also home to three miles of pristine white sand beaches, and 45 holes created for championship golf. The Puntacana Resort & Club is without a doubt one of the best destinations where amateur and professional golf players will enjoy an exciting combination of beach and golf in the Caribbean. In addition, it is just a few miles from the Punta Cana International Airport.
The event is being coordinated by Golflink ,organizers of all the Web.com Tour tournaments in Bogota and Cartagena, also in Colombia. These tournaments came about through an agreement with the Puntacana Group and the American Professional Golf Association. The tournament is part of the PGA Tour.
The Puntacana Resort & Club is an important addition to the growing presence and impact of the PGA TOUR in Latin America, which now features the Web.com and PGA TOUR Latin America. Alongside these golf events will be the Olympic Games, to be held this summer in Rio de Janeiro. These various sports events will place Latin America and the PGA Tour on the world’s sport scenario, specifically the Latin America PGA Tour and the Web.com Tour. These two events will also place the Dominican Republic on the forefront of golf in the region.
The first “Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship” is a much awaited event that will also help attract new players not only to the sport, but also to the Dominican Republic, especially when the international golf community sees the incredible golf facilities and Caribbean beauty of the Corales golf course, one of the best in the world.
