The Dominican Republic Tourist Board will be among the attendees at Golf Live, an event due to take place at the London Golf Club in Kent from 20 to 22 May.

Visitors to the show will be able to learn more about the range of designer golf courses on offer in the Caribbean nation.

The likes of Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo and other legends of the sport have designed or been involved with the development of courses in the Dominican Republic.

Many golf complexes and links are located along the east coast, which is being developed into a tourist hub featuring marinas, luxury resort accommodation, hotels and other facilities.

Sabrina Cambiaso, executive director of the Dominican Republic Tourist Board, said the destination is excited by the prospect of showcasing its attractions at Golf Live.

She added: 'Our vision to grow the Dominican Republic's east coast into an upscale golfer's paradise is unfolding with great care to preserve and showcase the area's pristine beauty and eco-diversity.

'The Dominican Republic has invested a lot in tourism infrastructure and plans to add even more developments such as new highways, road signs and other enhancements by 2012.'
