Biella Golf Club Welcome
Dear golfers, companions, International and National Golf Associations members, Authorities, ladies and gentlemen
On behalf of all the Biella Golf Club members, I would like to give all of you my warmest welcome to our Club, on the
occasion of the tenth Reply Italian International Under 16 Championship, named after Teodoro Soldati, the youngest
Italian champion, winner of the eight edition. I am sure that many of you had the great pleasure to meet and know him
around Europe and that they will remember him forever..
The championship keeps confirming quality and quantity of its players; this year we have reached the number of 144
players , representing 20 nations. The winner of this edition will receive a very prestigious award: a wild card for the 2016
I would like also to underline that in a few weeks two young champions competing here in the previous editions will
defend Europe in the Ryder Cup: Thomas Pieters from Belgium and Matthew Fitzpatrick from England.
It is a great pleasure to host the Championship and the whole of you on our Club. It is the site of one of the more discreet
but also one of the greatest golf courses of Italy. We hope the excellent players of the championship will value it this week.
Our staff has prepared course, Club house and facilities in the best possible way.
To all foreign guests: we sincerely hope that all of you will have a pleasant and memorable stay in our country. To all the
golfers, our best wishes to find here the right atmosphere to live together a great competition week.
Thanks again for being here with us , wishing this event to be the springboard to success for new champions.
