The Brief

As new owners of an old golf course (circa 1895) we would like a fresh and energetic logo that is simplistic and reflective of the historical nature of the course and the pioneering oil heritage that shaped the community.

Course Description:

Heritage Heights, located in Petrolia, Ontario, Canada, is a challenging 18 hole golf course open for green fee and tournament play. The golf course is unique in that the back nine was opened in 2001 within a newly developed residential subdivision (Glenview Estates), but the front nine was built in the 1890’s! Both nines are distinctly different from one another, offering a variety of hole designs and individual challenges.

The course’s history is linked to the petroleum industry that started in the area well over 100 years ago. There are still some abandoned oil wells and historic pump rigging visible on the course.

Course History:
In the late 1890s, Glenview, as the course was named then, was a six-holeHistoric Glenview Golf Course circa 1890’s private course built by Jacob (Jake) Englehart, one of Imperial Oil’s first vice-presidents. It was a hangout for oil barons and the rich and famous from all over the world.

Jake Englehart was the owner of one of three Oil Refineries operating in Petrolia at that time. The three refineries later merged forming a new company called The Imperial Oil Company Limited. At the time, Petrolia supplied 90 percent of Canada’s oil.

In 1891, Jake and his new wife, Charlotte Eleanor, honeymooned in St. Anne’s, Scotland and fell in love with Scottish courses. Englehart vowed he would build a course when he got home. The course is believed to have been opened in 1895, and was called Glenview.

Englehart’s original course of six holes was constructed on 18 acres of Bear Creek flats. Back then, the first tee was almost right outside the front door of the mansion, next to Bear Creek. It was a par-22 course measuring about 1,330 yards. The holes remained virtually unchanged for 100 years. After expanding to nine holes, the course was bequeathed to the town, and incorporated as the Glenview Golf and Country Club in 1922. The original clubhouse was built on Queen Street but was torn down in 1965 because it had become too small and too noisy for neighbours. In the early days, when Petrolia was “dry”, the clubhouse was a popular spot.

A new clubhouse opened in 1965 and a curling rink in 1969. In 2001, the course expanded to it’s current 18 hole layout, with the new nine being built within the Glenview Estates subdivision. The Englehart Cup trophy which dates back to the 1920s, is presented annually to the club champion. Past winners include oil barons such as C.O. Fairbanks in 1932-1934. (From The London Free Press – Summer 2001).

Target Audience

The logo should attract all age demographics, tourists, hosts of tournaments, and patrons for the restaurant and bar.

lots of great entries so far, really liking the options that look good both multicolored and single colors. Would like to see more options with oil heritage and since 1895

Hi, I still haven’t received any payment for this competition, which ended more then a month ago so I’m not sure where the problem is since I’ve provided the artwork as requested. Could you please help me here, BDUB?
