Dear Rotarian Friends

The Organization Committee is looking forward to welcoming you all to the 44th IGFR European Championship which will take place from 24th to 29th September 2018 in the Adriatic Riviera.

The H.Q. of the Tournament will be based at the Rimini Grand Hotel which has always been considered as the symbol of "La Dolce Vita". The Hotel is well located between the 3 Golf Courses, one close to the sea and two parklands. Our unique Mediterranean climate provides a perfect setting for playing golf in September. The location is easily accessible from Central/North Europe through the motorways network even to the Bologna and Rimini airports. The Hotel is also well positioned to offer exclusive excursions, north to Ravenna, the "mosaic city, UNESCO World Heritage "and south to Urbino and San Marino (an independent very small country).

The Area is also well reputed for the quality of hospitality, the good food and the high liveable life. We are proud to be hosting again another IGFR Championship, the third in five years, and we are looking forward to giving all of you a warm and friendly welcome back to Italy.
