-Sinclair and Langlois to Act as Honorary Chairs-
Bath, Ont. (July 23, 2014) – The Great Waterway Classic is pleased to announce that two members of The Tragically Hip — bassist Gord Sinclair and guitarist Paul Langlois — have thrown their support behind the PGA TOUR Canada event and have been named Honorary Chairs for this years event. The Great Waterway Classic will take place at Loyalist Golf & Country Club in Bath, Ontario from August 21-24.
The Hip is no stranger to the Loyalist area as the band’s recording studio, The Bathhouse, is located just around the corner from Loyalist Golf & Country Club. Sinclair and Langlois also have a strong passion for golf so it is a perfect fit for them to be apart of this event.
“We are thrilled to have rock legends Gord and Paul come support The Great Waterway Classic,” said Tournament Director Brad Parkins. “Not only are they locals, they are Canadian icons and are acclaimed as one of the best Canadian rock bands of all-time.”
Not only will Sinclair and Langlois have honorary titles for the week, but they will both also be participating in the official PGA TOUR Canada pro-am on Tuesday August 19.
Events for The Great Waterway Classic get under way on Monday August 18, with the golf tournament itself beginning on Thursday August 21. Tickets are available by calling 1-877-508-1069 or by e-mailing email@example.com. Tickets are $10 a day or $25 for a 4 day pass.
