IAGTO names the Dominican Republic the best golf destination in the Caribbean and Latin America for 2013

The Dominican Ministry of Tourism has recently announced that the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) has named the Caribbean nation as the “2013 Golf Destination of the Year in the Caribbean and Latin America” making this the second time that the Dominican Republic has won this prestigious award. The award was officially presented to representatives of the Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism at the annual IAGTO convention held from the 12th to the 15th November 202 in Vilamoura, Portugal.

Notably, the award comes at a time when the island’s tourism officials are seeking to develop the Dominican Republic’s golf tourism profile and will certainly lend credibility to claims that Dominican Republic holidays are the ideal option for golf lovers.

Pretra Cruz, Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism Director in Europe, had the following to say of the award, “Dominican Republic is thrilled to receive this distinguished award as the best golf destination in the entire Caribbean and Latin American in 2013 from the golf world's most savvy travel planners… World-class golf, magnificent unspoiled nature, championship course design and friendly, high-quality services are abundant among our list of 28 superb golf courses. Each course features exciting and breathtaking vistas and unique challenges created by the golf world's best designers”

Golf enthusiasts planning holidays in the Dominican Republic will be spoiled for choice with a list of world-class golf courses on offer in all corners of the island including the Central and Northern regions of the island with courses such as Aromas, Playa Dorada and Playa Grande.

Alternatively, for the perfect blend of golf and a luxury Caribbean sun, sea and sand holiday experience travellers can also opt for a stay at one of the best golf resorts in the Dominican Republic - the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in beautiful Punta Cana. This all-inclusive Hard Rock hotel comes equipped with access to an impressive Jack Nicklaus designed golf course - the Cana Bay Golf Course. This perfectly architected course with the gorgeous Punta Cana coast serving as the backdrop was the site of the 2012 Dominican Republic Open - part of the PGA LatinoAmerica Tour.

With the Dominican Republic firmly in the spotlight as a top golf destination, booking Dominican Republic holidays may become more popular with those travellers hoping to getting in touch with their inner Rory McIlroy while enjoying some Caribbean sun, sea and sand.
