August 21, 2023—Golfpac Travel is pleased to announce the prestigious honor of being chosen as a marketing partner by the Ministry of Tourism of the Dominican Republic.

“The Dominican Republic has worked tirelessly to ensure that our destination provides visitors, industry members and workers with the best resources and guarantees to feel safe and confident while supporting the tourism industry in the country,” David Collado, Minister, Ministry of Tourism of the Dominican Republic said in a formal letter solidifying the partnership with Golfpac Travel.  At a recent Press Conference held in Miami, Collado appeared with Golfpac Travel Managing Partner Marc Bender and said, “We are really excited to partner with Golfpac Travel and hope you bring many more traveling golfers to the Dominican Republic.”

Golfpac Travel also partners with many great courses as well as resorts in the Dominican Republic including Casa de Campo, which features the world-famous Teeth of the Dog and Punta Cana Resort & Club, which features Los Corales with six holes overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

At the same press conference in Miami, Bender said “The Dominican Republic is a bucket list destination with world famous golf courses and beautiful resorts with welcoming hospitality, and Golfpac is thrilled to partner with the Ministry of Tourism to promote travel to the area,” 

The Dominican Republic is famous for having the most magnificent golf courses in the Caribbean and Latin America and is the undisputed leader of golf in the tropics. At least seven of the Dominican Republic’s courses have consistently topped Golf Week Magazine’s Top 50 courses in the Caribbean and Mexico, including Punta Espada in the top 10, Los Corales Golf Course, where since 2018, a PGA Tour tournament continues to be hosted, and Teeth of the Dog at Casa de Campo, in the number one spot since 2009. There are at least 86 sea-facing holes and 39 ocean-side courses, offering tee time by the sea, or along lush inland courses designed by the most acclaimed golf course architects, including Pete Dye, Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones Sr., Gary Player, Tom Fazio, Nick Price and Greg Norman.

The Dominican Republic features stunning vistas – including waves crashing over dramatic coastlines, coconut palm groves, lush sun-kissed fairways, gentle mountains and exotic nature – set the scene for uniquely designed and distinct golf courses and opportunity for adventure. Golf champions and hobby players alike cannot resist playing the island’s challenging courses blessed with clear blue skies, azure seas and constant beautiful weather.
