Fox Harb’r’s fairways have also been challenged by the likes of Bill Clinton, Bobby Orr and the world’s number-one golfer, Tiger Woods.
TIGER WOODS, CHARLES BARKLEY & HANK HANEY
The 2009 Nike Golf Invitational allowed golf aficionados a one-of-a-kind opportunity to spend the day with one of the world’s greatest athletes. With a limited media and guest list the affair was truly an up close and personal experience in a relaxed and very intimate setting. The event featured a nine-hole exhibition match between Tiger Woods, Charles Barkley and celebrity golf swing coach Hank Haney. “I’ve never been to this part of Canada before and it’s beautiful,” Tiger Wood commented. “The event was great and it was really fun to play with my friends Hank and Charles; we don’t get a chance to play with each other very often. I’m also thankful that we were able to raise a lot of money for my foundation and for Canadian junior golf.”
