Laura Kearney was born and raised in the Dominican Republic, and when she was 16 years old she moved to the United States in order to get a better education. As she was always passionate about helping the tourism industry back in her country, she decided to major in Hospitality Management at East Carolina University, where she obtained her Bachelor’s degree. After graduating from college she moved to New Orleans and worked in the hospitality industry for a while but later decided that it was time to move back to the DR where she could apply her strong knowledge in the growing tourism industry that the country was exhibiting.
Her journey in golf started as the Golf Groups Coordinator of Puntacana Resort and Club where she handled the logistics and operations of many golf tournaments and golf groups from all over the world. During her time in Puntacana Resort and Club, she also helped develop a golf program by directing meetings between the hotel management and the golf courses where partnership agreements were implemented.
Three years later, she was hired as the Sales & Marketing Manager of a world renowned DMC where she traveled and promoted the DR as the best golf destination in the Caribbean. After years of working in the tourism/golf industry she decided to follow the advice of many of her clients and created The Golf Republic, a golf travel company that promotes the Dominican Republic and offers its customers the finest accommodations with the best services at affordable prices. These days, The Golf Republic is positioning itself as the number one golf travel advisor of the island and is focusing in expanding its services internationally.
