Marcos Malespín said, “today we inaugurate this dream as a symbol of our confidence in the country, in the climate that our government has fostered for investment and the development of initiatives in favor of the best interests of our society, to generate well-being, work, and security for all Dominicans.”
Likewise, he highlighted that with the complimentary offer of tourism, they feel very proud as a company to generate, during the work, more than 2,500 direct and indirect jobs and for having prioritized the provision of national products over imported ones.
“It fills us with satisfaction that we filled a gap that there was with tourists from the capital, who had to travel many kilometers to the east of the country to play a high-quality golf course, and now thanks to this project, that is just a few minutes from the city center, they have the opportunity to enjoy a golf course with PGA standards. Moreover, now all the hotels in the capital can expand the range of services offered, including our golf course,” he added.
