Hole # 14, par 3, 116 yards

Hole # 14

Hole # 14

If you haven’t played Collicutt Siding Golf Club and you live in Calgary then you should. Take Deerfoot Trail and head north towards Edmonton. At 2A to Crossfield, take the exit and turn left at the top of the ramp. Drive for 5 minutes and make a left on Western. Follow it to the golf course.

It is surprisingly good for golfers of all ages and skill levels. First of, something that I haven’t seen before – a kids’ tee box. On every hole, there is a set of lime coloured tee boxes that lets kids tee off on. Also, it is only golf course that you can run your cart on the fairway leading to a par 3.

Hole # 14 plays off the new clubhouse which was built in 2005. It is quite a nice looking clubhouse with a pro shop and restaurant facilities. From the white tees, the green is located on the other side of a creek that winds through the fairway. A large bunker in the front protects the pin.

I was first up and decided to hit a soft 9-iron. My ball flew straight towards the pin, over the bunker and just on the edge of the green. Rob was next. He hit a wedge high up and ended up in between my ball and the pin. Holly was next up. She played the white tees with the guys and ended up short and into the creek. Cindy played from the red tees decided to hit a hybrid. Unfortunately, her ball would clear the bridge but find the long grass on the other side of the creek.

I was first to putt and found the hole to be uphill. There was quite a lot of slope to it and I didn’t give it enough roll. I would end up with a bogey. Rob was next to putt and he also bogeyed the hole. No one walked away with a par. It looked like an easy hole but we all were challenged.

  1. Hi,
    I too am an avid golfer. Today, I’m working between shots while watching the President’s Cup. I’m contacting you regarding my Ent on the Green (EOTG) golf belt buckle invention. Over the past weeks I’ve been working on getting approval from Kickstarter for my campaign. Yesterday I got that approval email from Kickstarter. The best gold standard advice for Kickstarter campaigns is making the right audience aware of the campaign. I was hoping you would agree that the EOTG belt buckle would of interest to your readers.
    It could be a great story for Getting on the Green for these reasons:
    1. Innovative gear– The EOTG buckle is the world’s first (patent approved) buckle in which both your divot tool and marker are secured in a unique, stylish belt buckle.
    2. Simple design– The EOTG buckle has 3 pieces: the buckle, the ball marker, and the divot tool. The buckle has a low-profile design so that it is versatile and won’t be in the way. The color combinations options for the golfer to represent their teams are unprecedented in the industry.
    3. Made for guys like me– The EOTG buckle delivers your most needed tools reliably in the same spot right at your fingertips, so you never have to check your other pocket or run back to the cart.
    If you’re interested, please let me know how I can make the writing process easy for your team. I’m happy to send more hi-res photos. We launch Tuesday, the 15th at 8am PST.
    Thanks for taking the time to check us out.
    Best regards,
    Colin
