Occidental Hotels and Resorts sponsors golfing holidays in the Dominican Republic

The exciting “Occidental Trophy 12” annual Golf Tournament, sponsored by Occidental Hotels and Resorts, was recently held in the Dominican Republic. This amazing event, organised by the Madrid-based hotel company, is part of the world-famous Central American Inter-Club Golf Tournament which has taken place in various Latin American countries such as: Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. By making Santo Domingo the proud host of the tournament in 2012, Occidental Hotels and Resorts endeavoured to promote golfing holidays in the Dominican Republic.

The Golf Channel followed every moment of the thrilling competition, where some of the top amateur players in the world participated. Many executives, diplomats, and friends of Occidental hotels gathered at the stunning La Romana Country Club in Santo Domingo, which boasts some of the best golf courses in the Dominican Republic, and took pleasure in watching over a hundred golfers have fun while they tested their skills in the game.

A fun treat for the enthusiastic competitors was a glamorous Gala, where a lucky golfer won a relaxing week at the Dye Villas, an exclusive hotel which is part of the RCI Registry Collection in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, USA. This prize was a generous donation from RCI and Occidental Vacation Club. Luis Namnum, President of Occidental Vacation Club, stated he was very happy with the way the event had gone. “We were glad to be co-sponsors once again,” he said “125 players participated and the course proved challenging and terrifically satisfying at the same time. Each year the event grows and it´s always a great time. We were especially grateful to RCI for donating one of the top prizes.”

The “Occidental Trophy 12” Golf Tournament is the seventh event of its kind, and is part of the Infoglof America International Circuit, which began in 1998. This event was originally organised by Occidental´s Vacation Club´s parent company, which owns 11 all-inclusive resorts that have over 23, 000 members. Some of these amazing resorts are located in Aruba, Mexico, Costa Rica and of course, the Dominican Republic. Occidental Vacation Club´s properties in the Caribbean country are among the highest-quality golf resorts in the Dominican Republic.

Occidental Hotels and Resorts and Occidental Vacation Club worked very hard for the realisation of the event as well as for the promotion of their venues. Although their main goal was to promote golfing getaways in Latin America, they also intended encourage more people to take Dominican Republic holidays in their resorts and clubs. The Occidental Vacation Club´s venues will not only be terrific for golf- lovers, but for all types of visitors, as they feature limitless meals and snacks, a la carte dining in specialty restaurants including unlimited alcoholic beverages. The opportunity to do sports(tennis on a lighted court, water polo, aqua aerobics and kayaking) and use the fitness centre will be also be given to the client, as well as access to the supervised Kids Club (from ages 4-12) and nightly shows and live entertainments.
