Eden Roc at Cap Cana is pleased to announce the inaugural Eden Roc Golf Classic, which is being staged across Punta Espada Golf Club, a Dominican Republic golfing masterpiece and the first Signature design by Jack Nicklaus in this destination.
The inaugural Eden Roc Golf Classic is Dominican Republic’s newest International golf tournament which is set to become a mainstay on the amateur golf travellers’ calendar. This tournament is aimed at raising the profile amongst golf travellers of these two stunning properties and Cap Cana itself, as well as widening their International tour operator and travel agent relationships. The tournaments hotel and golf combination has also never been done before, which will prove appealing to golfers and non-golfers alike.
Guests will be staying at Eden Roc Cap Cana, which is the Dominican Republic’s only Relais & Châteaux member hotel. Boasting 60 sumptuous accommodations ranging from lavish boutique villas with their own private pools to elegantly designed Beachfront suites and four recently unveiled charming Ocean Villas that offer complete privacy, Eden Roc at Cap Cana is a unique and secluded property nestled in the exclusive, beachfront community of Cap Cana at the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic.
Partnering with this stunning hotel, three rounds of tournament golf will be played across Punta Espada Golf Club. Opened in November 2006 it is already listed among the world’s finest, with the renowned Golf Week publication ranking it as the "#1 Best Golf Course in the Caribbean and Mexico" and Golf Digest as the #63 in the World. Eight holes play along and over the sea. From all points of Punta Espada, golfers are blessed with extraordinary views of the Caribbean, where the sea contrasts against the emerald fairways and the perfect greens.
The Eden Roc Classic is a 54-hole stroke-play relaxed and social team tournament, with the winning team being crowned the inaugural Eden Roc Classic Champion 2019.
Giles Greenwood commented “The travelling golfer is lucky to have many tournaments to choose from, however for all these different golf events, this is the first time Eden Roc Cap Cana has been featured within a tournament programme. One of the most recognisable hotels for the general leisure traveller, It’s rapidly growing in popularity with the discerning golfer, so creating this tournament and combining it with Punta Espada Golf club will prove a very welcome addition to the international golf events calendar”.
Stefano Baratelli, Managing Director of Eden Roc Cap Cana commented “We are delighted to be partnered with Seventy2 Golf for this inaugural premiere golfing event. Eden Roc Cap Cana is in prime golfing territory and fits perfectly with this event due to our close relationship with Punta Espada. We are looking forward to hosting more of these events in the future."
With spaces limited we expect this exclusive event to sell out quickly. The tournament takes place from December 1-8, 2019.
