USCGFR comes to California

The 30th Annual National Championships of the United States-Canada Golfing Fellowship of Rotarians returns to California this October 6-10.

The event will be held on the Monterey Peninsula and the three day tournament will be contested at Old Del Monte and Quail Lodge. The tournament hotel is the Hyatt Regency Monterey at Old Del Monte.

This annual tournament is being hosted by the Rotary Club of Pacific Grove but, because we're an offshoot of the Fellowship, the Monterey Bay Golfing Fellowship of Rotarians is serving as the unofficial host. Jim Pescatore is not only the tournament chair but also the incoming President of the USCGFR.

We really want to see a successful event this year and we encourage all MBGFR members to participate. We guarantee you'll make new Rotary friends from around the world! The USCGFR National Championships were last held in California in 2013 in Indian Wells and we had great participation from MBGFR members. Let's repeat that this year!

A number of MBGFR members are already registered so please join us! Visit www.uscgfr2019.com for complete information and to download a tournament registration form. 

We want to see you in Monterey in October!
