1983 - Gord Edwards

Gord Edwards, Golfer, 1983-Present

“I played my first round on Mt Kidd in 1983; the year it opened and the year my wife and I moved to Calgary from Ontario. Through the years it became an annual event for my son and I to pitch our tent in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park so that we could bike, hike, camp and take in a round of golf or two.

My son and I would try for an early afternoon tee time so that we could grab a shower and then go upstairs to the restaurant for a beer and a meal before dusk. There we would sit, chat and look over the beauty of the mountains and golf courses. What a feeling. Life was good. The Nakoda First Nation has a word for that: “wastec”, meaning “all is well”. I am looking forward to your opening next year to experience that “wastec” feeling with my son again.”
