Wes Heffernan
Wes Heffernan
Induction Class: 2015
Sport: Golf

During Wes Heffernan’s time at Mount Royal College, he dominated golf in Western Canada. The Calgary, Alberta native racked up four wins in six tournaments between 1997 and 1998. In September of 1997 he, along with fellow standout teammate Scott Baird, led the Cougars to an overwhelming 26-shot, team victory in the ACAC Championship. Heffernan won the silver medal finishing just behind Baird. 

Later that fall, Wes put together one his finest efforts as a Cougar, leading Mount Royal to a Western Canadian Championship at the Kamloops Golf and Country Club. Individually, Wes won the tournament by a landslide and got the ball rolling on one of the best tournament runs in men’s collegiate golf. 

Heffernan won his next three starts in early 1998, defeating some stiff competition from schools in the United States. In each of his three individual wins, he led Mount Royal to the overall team title each time.  

Wes rounded out his amateur career with an Alberta Amateur Title and a Canadian Amateur Co-Title. He turned professional in 2000 and was awarded with a trip to the RBC Canadian Open where he played alongside some of the game’s greats including Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia. 

In 2001, Wes had the biggest breakthrough of his career, qualifying for the US Open. He did not make the cut that year, but ever determined, he got back to the Open again in 2011 at Congressional Country Club and made the cut finishing 71st amongst the world’s best golfers. 

After nearly 15 years on the PGA Tour of Canada, Wes has amassed four wins including two titles in 2007. He is a five time Alberta Open Champion and has represented Canada internationally on four separate occasions. 

His accomplishments as a professional raised the level of college golf not only in Alberta, but around the country. The dominance of his Cougar teams in the late 1990s made Mount Royal a viable option for young golfers aspiring to go pro.
