I am greatly honored to serve as President of the USCGFR for the next three years. My sincere thanks to the Board of Directors that had the confidence to select me for this position. My goal is simply to continue to provide quality golf tournaments and events for our membership, and to grow our participation in these events.
We just completed the 2019 National Championship in Monterey CA. Our tournament was played at the historic Del Monte Golf Course and the beautiful Quail Lodge Golf Club. Our host hotel was the Hyatt Regency Resort in Monterey. The non-golfers enjoyed a trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and a tour of the Monterey Peninsula and Pebble Beach on the Monterey Movie Bus. The ladies also enjoyed lunch at the world famous Tap Room at Pebble Beach. Our entire group enjoyed dinner at the Whaling Station on Cannery Row. We enjoyed great fellowship and perfect weather, sunshine and temperatures in the mid 70’s.
Finally, I would like to congratulate the champions of the 30th playing of our event, Dupont Kirven of North Carolina (Gross Champion) and Larry Newman of Florida (Net Champion).
A special thank you to the host club of this great event, the Pacific Grove Rotary Club.
Now the focus turns to our 2020 tournament which will be contested at Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada. We will play three premier golf courses, Niagara Falls Country Club, Grand Niagara, and St. Catherine’s Golf and Country Club. Complete details and registration information will be added to the website soon. Bring a friend! Let’s double our participation!
See you in Canada!
