30th Annual Charity Golf Tournament in support of hospice calgary

Monday August 26, 2024 at the Winston Golf Club

Our Story and hospice calgary

Formally a funeral home, The Cat ‘n Fiddle was born in the spring of 1992. The original owner thought it would be fun to get a bunch of patrons together and form a little tournament. This had evolved into a true charity tournament when Stuart McAllister and his family took over in 2000. Stuart chose to support the neighboring Rosedale Hospice, seeing the value in what they do for the community and even more importantly experiencing how a Hospice helped his own family.

Fast forward to 2012, Stephen Gillette acquired The Cat ’n Fiddle. After a near death experience in 2011, he looked more in depth into what Hospice Calgary offers the community. Agreeing with Stuart’s assessment, the support of The Cat ’n Fiddle charity events were kept in their direction. Since 2012, we have proudly raised over $750,000 and look forward to our best year yet!

Hospice Calgary supports children, teens and adults coping with life-threatening illness, sudden or expected death. The Rosedale Hospice is Hospice Calgary’s seven bed facility where cancer patients and their loved ones can focus on quality of life at the end of life. It is a quiet, peaceful home where patients are cared for in a supportive environment. Rosedale Hospice offers a life affirming alternative to hospitalization or dying at home, focusing on quality of life.

We truly value their support to our city and are proud that we can help them continue their great work with proceeds from our tournament sponsorships.

The Course

The Winston Golf Club is a semi-private club conveniently located just minutes from downtown Calgary at the junction of Deerfoot Trail and 16th Avenue North (QE2 and Trans Canada highways). With Nose Creek flowing between the front and back nine, The Winston is a city-center oasis of water, mature trees, greens, and gardens.

First opened to the public as the Regal in 1923, the golf course has matured over ninety years to become one of the finest in the area. The course has seen many changes in its day including a major re-design completed in 1992 by renowned golf architect Les Furber.

Today, the maturity of the well-maintained course adds to its allure. Tree lined fairways, abundant water hazards, and many well-placed bunkers offer a beautiful challenge to golfers of all skill levels. The championship 18-hole course plays between 5,401 and 7,037 yards from four sets of tees. There is a driving range, two putting greens and a short game practice area.
