Emma Woodhouse was 1 of 20 golfers from Cayman who made the trip last week to the world famous Casa de Campo golf resort on the southern coast of the Dominican Republic. There were approximately 170 players taking part from all across the Caribbean. In addition to competing in the main tournament Emma was 1 of the 4 ladies representing Cayman in the “Dessie Henry Trophy”, a separate ladies only event run within the general competition.
Whilst the ladies all tried their hardest the team from Jamaica was too strong and won the trophy by a large margin. The men fared better coming second overall in the general competition and there was some success in the Woodhouse household. On the final day Emma’s husband Paul had the best score of any golfer over the three days of the tournament!
Whilst she was disappointed at the result Emma had a fantastic time, met some old and made some new friends and was very grateful to the Cayman Islands Golf Association for enabling her to attend. Below is a picture of one of the truly spectacular courses she played. It is called “Teeth of the Dog”
