The Casa de Campo Association Challenge - A Championship of Golf Associations

January 27th, 2015

The Indiana Golf Association is excited to offer IGA members an exclusive opportunity to enjoy a world class competition and golf vacation. 
The Casa de Campo Association Challenge - A Championship of Golf Associations, is scheduled at the world-renowned Casa de Campo Resort in the Dominican Republic from March 14th to the 18th, 2015.  This unique opportunity allows IGA members to represent the IGA Team against Golf Associations from around the US and the world. Men and women will compete in net  flights in the quest of winning valuable points for their association toward the team championship.
Casa de Campo presents three Pete Dye designed golf courses that may be the best collection of courses at any resort in the world… it most certainly is the best collection in the Caribbean.  The Teeth of the Dog course set on the edge of the Caribbean is rated in the in the top 40 courses in the WORLD!  The newly renovated Links course is truly a fun and beautiful links style course presenting a different set of challenges from The Teeth.  The 27 hole Dye Fore course is built above the spectacular Chavon River and may be Pete’s best work ever.  Three completely different course personalities and challenges await you at Casa!  
Casa de Campo, the host of the Casa de Campo Association Challenge, is offering a plan that includes it all: room, meals, drinks, golf, prizes and even a golf cart for touring the Casa property. You will enjoy an array of spectacular restaurants and bars, a world-class tennis center, sport shooting, horseback riding, polo, a fitness center and, of course, lots of water in several resort pools and the palm fringed ocean beach.  Altos de Chavon, a 16th century Mediterranean village replica on the resort property, offers breathtaking views and is a cultural mecca for the arts. 
Make your air reservations early as flights to the Caribbean fill quickly. Casa’s program includes transportation from all three airports.  La Romana (LRM) Airport is a ten minute drive to the resort while Punta Cana (PUJ) is only 40 minutes away and Santo Domingo (SDQ) is 55 minutes on the new highway.
Please join your IGA friends and teammates for four nights and five days of excitement, enchantment, competition, and celebration!  To enter or if you would like more information, go to or contact:
