Fareen “Far” Samji is the 4-time ILDC Canadian Women’s Long Drive Champion. Born and raised in Mombasa, Kenya, Fareen immigrated to Canada in 1988 with the sole intent of an opportunity for higher education. While studying at McMaster University, she played on the varsity women’s tennis team and only played golf in the summer months. Even as a recreational golfer, she carried a 5 handicap and her power drives off the tee were her strength.
In 1999, after graduating with an undergraduate degree in Psychology and a second degree in Kinesiology she earned her tour card and played on the Future’s Tour, Players West Tour, Challenge Tour, Asian Tour, South African Tour and Canadian Tour, sporting one win and several top 5 finishes. Through every tour, her driving distance was always the mainstay of her game.
