Dominican Republic, the undisputed “It” golf destination, is  widely known as having the most magnificent golf courses in the Caribbean and Latin America. Besides boosting a growing list of world-class designer golf courses, the island also provides golfers with an array of accommodations such as “all Inclusive” full service hotels, oceanfront condos and luxury villas all with breathtaking views of Caribbean landscape.

That’s the reason why I have founded  The Golf Republic. We take pride in offering our clients our collection of lodging accommodations, golf courses and services that were especially hand picked to provide our customers with a lifetime memory in this magical island that we call home.

But who I am ?

I was born and raised in the Dominican Republic, and when I was 16 years old I moved to the United States in order to get a better education. As I was always passionate about helping the tourism industry in my country I majored in Hospitality Management at East Carolina University, where I focused on hotels. After graduating from college I moved to New Orleans where I worked as a bartender, but later decided that it was time to move back to the DR where I could apply my knowledge in the growing tourism industry that the country was exhibiting.

My journey started as the Golf Groups Coordinator of Puntacana Resort and Club where I handled the logistics and operations of many tournaments and golf groups from all over the world. Three years later, I was hired as the Sales & Marketing Manager of a world renowned DMC where I traveled and promoted the DR as the best golf destination in the Caribbean.


After years of working in the tourism/golf industry I decided to follow the advice of many of my clients and created The Golf Republic, a golf travel agency that promotes the Dominican Republic and offers clients the finest accommodations with the best services at affordable prices.

As for living well, besides eating healthy and exercising, I believe that being kind to others and not letting problems get the best of you are a perfect way to live a happy life where you are content with yourself.
