The Dominican Republic’s famous Casa de Campo that boasts the finest golf in the Caribbean region has again had its international reputation validated at the recent 2013 World Travel Awards. The awards are voted on by leading travel agents. At the so-called Oscars of the travel industry held for the Caribbean and North American region, Casa de Campo won the top award in the categories of:
World’s Leading Golf Resort 2013, Caribbean’s Leading Golf Resort 2013, Dominican Republic’s Leading Golf Resort 2013, and the Dominican Republic’s Leading Resort 2013. Casa de Campo is strong in sports, with renowned instructors from the equestrian, tennis, shooting and golf worlds.
The World Travel Awards, which for 20 years have been recognized around the globe as the travel industry’s highest accolade, celebrate companies, organizations, and brands that “are pushing the boundaries of industry excellence in product and service.”
This was the resort’s seventh straight win as World’s Leading Golf Resort, its sixth consecutive title as the Caribbean’s Leading Golf Resort (and its eighth win in 13 years), its 10th consecutive time earning the award for Dominican Republic’s Leading Golf Resort (making it the only winner ever in that category) and ninth straight win as the Dominican Republic’s Leading Resort (also making it the only winner ever in that category).
