The Awesome Invitational Golf Tournament


It’s been 35 years since Dr. William Francis, affectionately known to his beloved patients as Dr. Awesome, founded what would become the longest-running fundraising event in Humber River Hospital Foundation history.

We’re celebrating this momentous occasion with an over-the-top experience at one of Canada’s top-rated golf clubs – St. George’s Golf & Country Club.

Ranked 41st in the world by Golf Digest Magazine, the course at St. George’s is a true test of golf. Built on glacial land, hand-selected by Stanley Thompson, the classically designed course is full of character and speaks to the land’s natural beauty. The opportunity to explore its every nuance and secret, keeps members coming back every time.

St. George’s has hosted the Canadian Open five times, most recently in 2010. This is your opportunity to play a round like the pros do and enjoy the day, while giving back to your community.

Dust off the clubs and pop your collars for a day to remember!


Golfers will enjoy a day on the beautiful and prestigious St. George’s Golf and Country Club, with personalized service that sets the AWESOME apart including:

Breakfast of champions (buffet)
On-course snacks, tastings and cold drinks all day
Exquisite gourmet lunch-time grill
Lost ball retrieval service
Deluxe golfer participation gift
Delicious dinner
