Dominican Republic's Casa de Campo to Host David Ortiz Celebrity Golf Classic

November 16, 2017 -

Casa de Campo Resort & Villas – home to the Caribbean’s premier, luxury golf experiences, including the iconic Teeth of the Dog course – will be hosting the 10th annual David Ortiz Celebrity Golf Classic from Nov. 30 – Dec. 3.

Benefiting the David Ortiz Children’s Fund, the four-day social extravaganza and golf outing welcomes the biggest names in sports and entertainment joining the Red Sox slugger’s efforts in raising funds for lifesaving heart surgeries for children in his native Dominican Republic and throughout New England. To date, the surgeries made possible by the charity have saved the lives of over 600 children.

A variety of VIP, golf and social packages offer guests a “once-in-a-lifetime experience” at the world-class resort including a round of golf with a celebrity captain on the Pete Dye-designed Teeth of the Dog, widely recognized as the No. 1 course in the Caribbean. Packages also include luxury accommodations, access to all-inclusive fine dining, event entertainment as well as the chance to celebrate Ortiz’s humanitarian accomplishments and career with the man himself.

Over the years, it has been attended by some of baseball’s biggest stars and legends including Robinson Cano, Adam Jones, Alex Rodriguez, Dexter Fowler, Dustin Pedroia, Pedro Martinez, Manny Ramirez, Josh Donaldson, Mariano Rivera, Hanley Ramirez, Kevin Millar and Tim Wakefield as well as other athletic icons like Ray Allen, Bill Russell, Alonzo Mourning, Bobby Orr, Troy Brown and Lawrence Taylor.

Previous show business attendees include Chris Tucker, Eliza Dushku, Anthony Mackie, Dasha Polanco and Anthony Anderson, as well as musical entertainers like T.I. and DJ Pauly D.

“Retiring has given me the chance to really focus on doing what I love most, which is helping people,” says Ortiz. “If there is someone I can help, especially kids like these, that’s my mission. I want to be remembered for this just as much as my accomplishments on the field.”

To date, the event has netted $4 million and has given Ortiz the opportunity to showcase the beauty of his home country while improving the lives of children in need. Founded in 2007, The David Ortiz Children’s Fund was created in partnership with CEDIMAT Hospital to provide pediatric cardiac surgeries in the Dominican Republic.

In 2009, the Fund partnered with MassGeneral Hospital for Children to extend its life-saving mission to New England. Funds from the organization directly support various programs including life-saving cardiology surgeries, pediatric examination rooms and the Child Life Specialist in MGHfC’s Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
