Sometimes fate knocks on your door or in this case, a window! One of Ignat Kaneff’s first homes under construction backed onto a golf course and one day a ball came crashing through his window; that’s how he discovered golf.
“The golfers told me they would fix my window and invited me to play golf,” explains Iggy. “I hit a good ball—250 yards, which landed on the green.” But when Iggy applied to join a prestigious golf club, he says his application was turned down. “They didn’t accept guys like me from Bulgaria” he says. “So I was ambitious enough to want a golf course of my own.”
A passion for golf was born. KaneffGolf now consists of 6 properties and 144 holes of golf. Plans are currently under way for a new golf course in Caledon, Ontario.
