PGA Tour heads to Dominican Republic

The PGA Tour is taking its talents to ... south of South Beach, announcing Tuesday that it will have an event in the Dominican Republic starting in 2018. The Corales Punta Cana Resort & Club Championship will be held from March 22-25 next year and will be played the same week as the WGC-Dell Match Play. As an opposite-field event, golfers won't get into the Masters for winning, but they will still be able to rack up some FedEx Cup points and partake in a $3 million purse.

The Corales Punta Cana Resort & Club Championship was a Web.com Tour last year but will enjoy elevated status in 2018. It is taking the place of the Puerto Rico Open, which has yet to find a new spot on the PGA Tour schedule (or a new tour altogether), according to Ryan Herrington of Golf World.  "Hosting the very first PGA Tour tournament in the Dominican Republic is an honour both for Punta Cana Resort and Club and for the Dominican Republic itself," said Frank Rainieri, the resort's chairman and founder.

"This is an affirmation of the exceptional golf facilities we have down here, and we are thrilled to expose the international golf community to the Dominican Republic. The Web.com Tour's Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship debut in 2016 was a standout moment on the calendar for us and we are thankful for that experience. We look forward to another outstanding tournament on the Web.com Tour in May and then to grow our relationship with the PGA Tour beginning in 2018."

If you are wondering what are the best things to do in Punta Cana, wonder no more. This 62 mile strip has beaches facing both the Caribbean and the Atlantic ocean, therefore is never short of water activities. Fly over the Taino mountain, snorkel around the reef and shipwrecks, get a spa treatment ona floating spa or drive speedboats fast and furiously, there are many Punta Cana excursions available that are nothing but fun and exciting with a bit of relaxation in the mix. Picture yourself in a James Bond movie in the paradisiac islands of Catalina and Saona while swiming with sharks and stingrays, drive around the mountains and get up close and personal with the local communities or have a dinner party on board of a catamaran cruise, there´s always a great Punta Cana tour or daytrip in hand. Are you ready for Punta Cana?
