88. Priddis Greens

Priddis Greens Golf & Country Club

  • Hawk course
  • Priddis, Alberta (48KM southwest from Calgary)
  • 10th in the Province
  • Bill Newis, Wade Horrocks
  • 1986
  • 84.1513 points

Being far enough from downtown Calgary makes Priddis Greens an oasis away from the bustling city, yet close enough that it has always been a staple on lists such as these. As a result, the club hosts two eighteen hole layouts, but we see the spacious Hawk routing as the preferred of the two.

The opening five holes are mostly up on the top of the property near the clubhouse until the dramatic par 4, 6th, and it is this drop into the valley that poses some of the most interesting questions for Bill Newis. The solutions to such questions provide some of the most exciting golf holes, such as the elaborate 8th and the heroic 11th. In recent years, southern Alberta architect Wade Horrocks has touched up the golf course, but the fact remains that the par 5, 18th continues to be a disappointing finish to an otherwise pleasant golf course.
