The Golfing Fellowship of Rotarians – Scotland hasn’t had an official structure within GFR Europe or IGFR until now.

However the International Golfing Fellowship of Rotarians, IGFR, was founded at the birthplace of golf, at St.Andrews Scotland in 1964. From that time a world championship has been organised every year.

In 1964, 1965 and 1974 the championship took place at the old course of St. Andrews. In 1984, the 21st world championship took place at Gleneagles.

It has to be mentioned that separate from the IGFR championships, the Rotary Club of St.Andrews organises an international event for Rotarian golfers also every year. This club event is very much appreciated and makes an example of how Rotary clubs can promote the fellowship.

Now, we are looking forward to find some young Rotarian Golfers in Scotland to realize our aims and objectives and to help us promoting our fellowship throughout the country. GFR Scotland has to be established and become a strong representative partner within our international Golfing Fellowship without delay.

Please contact us if you want to cooperate! Thanks.
