Dear Rotary friends,
The IGFR 2016 Organising Committee is very pleased to invite you to the 53rd IGFR World Championship.
From 10 to 16 July 2016 the city of Rotterdam with its famous port and architectural masterpieces will become the centre of golf and Rotary fellowship. There will be something for everyone: both the recreational golfers and the near professionals, the avid golfers and the non-golfers.
The competition will be played over four of the best golf courses in the Rotterdam area. One of these courses has hosted the Ladies European Tour, another will host the European Tour from 2016 through 2018.
The 4 and 5 star hotels chosen by the Committee will offer you a high standard of hospitality. The House of Friendship will be located in one of them: the “ss Rotterdam”, the former flagship of the Holland America Line.
Rotterdam is easily accessible by train and car, or by plane through Rotterdam The Hague Airport or Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
If you would like to join a pre or post tour, we can offer you a wide range of activities from a cruise to Norway to a visit to Amsterdam. There is also an attractive programme on offer to non-golfers during the tournament week: they are going to explore various picturesque parts of our country.
We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to Rotterdam in 2016!
For the IGFR 2016 Organising Committee,
Jan G. den Hartog, IGFR Board Member
