The board of directors of the Dominican Golf Federation (Fedogolf), headed by its president Carlos Elmúdesi, visited the facilities of Vistas Golf & Country Club on Friday, July 8.
The Fedogolf board was received by the president of Vistas Golf & Country Club, Marcos Malespín, along with its directors.

During the meeting, Malespín said he was honored to receive the Fedogolf board and expressed his interest in continuing to invest in the development of golf as the sport with the greatest impact on the arrival of tourism to the Dominican Republic.
