The Australian Golfing Fellowship of Rotarians
The Australian Golfing Fellowship of Rotarians is a fellowship within the Rotary organisation. And is a part of what Rotary is all about, that is “fellowship within its members”.
It is also part of the 4th objective 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 the golfing fellowship is part of the four-way test. Building “Goodwill and better friendships”.
Rotary has many facets including the opportunity to provide service to local communities, nationally and internationally. But one of the most enjoyable parts of our Rotary life is the FELLOWSHIP within our clubs, our districts. And the whole world of Rotary clubs.
Rotarians worldwide have developed fellowships based on interests and vocations including: fishing, caravanning, motor sport, and bridge. One of the most active fellowships is the Australian Golfing Fellowship which organises an annual golf tournament held over a week and rotated state by state. Rotarians travel from all parts of Australia for a great week of golf and fellowship. And generally, there are around 100 Rotarian golfers. With 30-40 playing partners and 20-30 non playing partners.
In addition to the annual Australian Golfing Fellowship of Rotarians Tournament there is also an International Golfing Fellowship of Rotarians tournament. This is held annually in various countries around the world. International tournaments have been held in Europe, America, Asia and Australia. And a wonderful week of golf and fellowship has been enjoyed by all who attended.
The Rotary Club of Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland are the hosts for 2021. And they look forward to providing a wonderful week of golf and fellowship for Rotarians and their partners. The Sunshine Coast has a lot to offer. So make this event a must on your calendar for 2021.
Welcome to the Sunshine Coast
Our Golf Course details
Maroochy River Golf Club is the Sunshine Coast’s most prestige links golf course. And it has a spectacular venue for weddings and functions.
Designed by Graham Marsh, the 18-hole par 72 layout is unique. Because it is basically a links-style course. With wide fairways, few trees and lots of strategically placed bunkers. For instance, what makes it challenging is the water, which is a feature of almost every hole. And the wind. It’s a rare day that the wind does not affect play. But one important benefit is that it keeps golfers cool in even the warmest weather.
With the iconic Mt Coolum as a spectacular background, Maroochy River is an all-purpose golf complex. Offering superb practice facilities, a well-stocked pro shop, a modern clubhouse with outstanding bar and bistro facilities, a function room capable of hosting weddings, conferences and dinners, and – most importantly – friendly staff who make every visitor feel welcome.
