Dear members of IGFR International, dear Rotarians, Friends,


I can’t believe we are already in April. Not long now and early morning rounds of golf will be possible again as daylight hours extend faster and faster and announce spring is just around the corner. For golfers like us, the best time of the year starts now!


I want to share some exciting news with you all about our upcoming IGFR World Championship in Rome. We now have some 240 registrations, of which 195 are golfers and 55 are non-golfers. As you know, a great program awaits us in Rome, and registration remains open. 

Do check out all information on the beautiful golf courses, the surrounding program and activities, and of course the registration at

As a reminder, the 58th world championship will take place from 1st to 7th July 2023. 

And remember, one of the courses we will be playing is Marco Simone Golf & Country club, where the 2023 Ryder Cup will take place immediately after our championship – we can expect the course to be in excellent condition!


I very much look forward to see you all in the magical surroundings of Rome, the eternal City, for what IGFR International is all about: fellowship and golf.


With best Rotarian wishes,


Andrea Oddi
