James “Jim” Clark

Golf, Toronto

In 2017, the Invictus Games were held in Toronto and golf was included for the first time in the Game’s history. Jim was asked to be the Sport Chair for Golf of the event, he recalls:

“The Invictus Games were created by Prince Harry for ill and injured soldiers and he plays an active role in the event. I was thrilled to be asked to be the Sport Chair for Golf. We held it at St. Georges in Toronto which is one of the finest golf courses in Canada and worthy of this prestigious event. While we expected the Prince to come to the golf competition for a brief visit, scheduling changes meant that I had the honour of touring him for 90 minutes around the course. He met athletes and was certainly a distraction to the competition but it meant for a lifelong memory for me.”
