to the USGFR!

Welcome to the United States Golfing Fellowship of Rotarians

Our 2017 USGFR National Championships were held in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, September 11-15. Attendees enjoyed outstanding golf, wonderful Rotary Fellowship and a beautiful setting. Thanks to Dennis Guiser and his committee from Illinois Beach Sunrise Rotary Club for their hard work. It was another outstanding event!

Patrick Eakes of Greensboro, North Carolina, repeated as National Gross Champion at our recent 2017 USGFR National Championships in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. 

Jim Sissons of Niagara Falls, ON, Canada was our 2017 Net Champion.

Competitors in this year's event played the two beautiful courses at the Grand Geneva Resort and Spa. It was the USGFR's second visit to this beautiful resort....our 2004 National Championships were also held there. Two rounds of the tournament were conducted on The Highlands course designed by Pete Dye and Jack Nicklaus and the third round was played on The Brute, a Robert Bruce Harris design featuring 68 bunkers and rolling greens averaging more than 8,000 square feet. Both courses were challenging layouts but the weather and scenery were superb!

While golfers were on the course, non-golfers were treated to several excellent tours of area attractions including visits to Black Point Estate, the Johnson's Wax tour and a Lake Geneva shopping outing. Attendees also enjoyed a sunset cruise on Lake Geneva.

Our hats are off to Tournament Chair Dennis Guiser and members of the Illinois Beach Sunrise Rotary Club for arranging another outstanding event. We sincerely thank them for their efforts!
