Santo Domingo (PRNewswire).- After a hugely successful inaugural event, the Golf Travel Exchange for Dominican Republic is thrilled to announce that it will return for a second year in 2015. From September 5 – 10, golf tour operators, international golf media, golf course directors, hoteliers, DMC’s and more will have the chance to meet, network and experience first-hand what makes Dominican Republic the #1 golf destination in the Caribbean and one of the best in the world.

The summit will once again be hosted at the elite Casa de Campo Resort in La Romana. The luxurious accommodations paired with the three world-class courses on the property make it a perfect fit.

The announcement was made by Teddy De Lara, Executive Director of TARGET Consultores de Mercadeo and director of the DR Golf Travel Exchange.

"The event is designed to showcase the rich and unique golf culture of Dominican Republic and prove to the world why we have earned the rank and reputation as one of the top golf destinations in the world."

In addition to networking with other professionals and learning about the country’s vast golf offerings, attendees will also have the opportunity to experience it first-hand. All attendees will be able to participate in a golf tournament at Dye Fore golf course, designed by Pete Dye. Additionally, attendees will be able to enjoy golf rounds at Cocotal Golf Course at Melia’s Caribe Tropical Resort and Punta Espada Golf at Cap Cana.
