  • Nationwide Tour Comes to TPC Stonebrae with the Fresh Express Challenge

    08 Apr 2010

    The Nationwide Tour comes to TPC Stonebrae in Hayward, CA on April 12 with the Fresh Express Classic.  Together with football legend Jerry Rice, this tournament aims to raise awareness and funds to help fight childhood obesity. 

    Some WGT employees were invited to the press day and to play a round of golf with Jerry Rice and a number of sports journalists.  The golf course is a sprawling beast that will prove to be a formidable challenge for the professionals competing in the Fresh Express Classic. Hole #12 is a stunning 625 yard par 5! Nestled in the hills above Hayward, CA, nearly every hole has sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay. 

    WGT wishes to thank TPC Stonebrae, Jerry Rice, and Fresh Express for including us in the event.
