Australian Golfing Fellowship of Rotarians is a fellowship within the Rotary organization and is part of what Rotary is about, that is fellowship within its membership. It is also part of the 4th Object of Rotary: that is “The advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service”.
Also it is part of the four way test: “will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?”
Our Rotary organization has many facets from service within our clubs to community and world service, but one of the most enjoyable parts of our Rotary life is the FELLOWSHIP within our Club, our Districts and the whole world of Rotary Clubs.
Rotary has many fellowships from fishing, caravanning, motor biking, bridge to various vocations, one of the more active fellowships is the Australian Golfing Fellowship. Each year we meet in a town or city somewhere in Australia and have a golf tournament over a week. This week is rotated on a State by State basis annually.
Rotarians travel from all parts of Australia, Hobart to Cairns, Victoria to Western Australia and Darwin for the week of golf and fellowship. Generally we have around 100 Rotarian golfers with 30- 40 playing partners and 20-30 non playing partners.
Each year there is an International Golfing Fellowship of Rotarians, once again the tournament is held over a week and is held in various countries around the world. We travel to Europe, America, Asia and Australia and a wonderful week of golf and fellowship is had by all who attend.
