There is nothing more ROTARY than GOLF
Is it the TRUTH?
Absolutely, we never lie on the golf course, especially about our stroke count. Golfers are very honest people.
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Of course, the course and game is set so all golfer have an equal opportunity. Tee off from Black, Blue White or Red and then we have a “handicap”. What could be fairer?
Will it build GOODWILL AND BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
The best friends in the world are your “golfing buddies”. There is nothing more friendly than four guys or gals playing a round of golf every Thursday or Saturday morning or spending four days in Palm Springs, Scottsdale or Hilton Head. And nothing brings more goodwill than friends playing a round of golf.
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
The 21st Annual Rotary Open will benefit our Rotary Club of Grand Rapids Charities Foundation supporting it’s many philanthropic projects and programs.
We hope you will join us on Monday, August 7 at Blythefield Country Club where all is TRUTHFUL, FAIR, FRIENDLY AND BENEFICIAL TO ALL . After all, it is GOLF!
