Congratulations and thanks to the organizers of the 13th Annual Love of Children Golf Classic.  The tournament teed off this morning in chilly conditions.  Last night we hosted their Black Tie Gala…a well attended and successful evening.  The Love of Children is Central Alberta’s premiere charity golf event and we are proud to have hosted all 13.  The tournament has raised close to three million dollars for various pediatric care areas at the Red Deer Regional Hospital .

Lynn Booth is chairing a 100th Anniversary Committee.  That group is looking for member suggestions on events, themes and ideas on how to make 2022 a special year.  If you have any Red Deer Golf and Country Club photos or memorabilia that might interest Lynn’s committee please drop it off any time at the Administration Office.

In August on Wednesday the 9th we host a Battle of Alberta Golf Tournament in support of the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre.  The Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames are supporting the tournament which takes place during the Ivan Hlinka/Wayne Gretzky World Junior Hockey Tournament.

Since the tournament goes Wednesday and many of our members won’t get their usual round in I have pre-booked a number of times between 12:30 and 2:30 pm at the Ponoka Community Golf Course.  It is a fun well-conditioned golf course and they have made it available at a cost of $60.00 including a power cart.  If you want to play or reserve one or more of these times call me at 403-347-5441.

Chung Mah and his organizing committee have some terrific ideas to rejuvenate our Club Championship.  Please save the dates (August 25 & 26) and plan on playing.  There will be a fun horse race and banquet on Sunday.  Sponsorship opportunities exist…please call Chung, Dean Manz or myself if you are able to help out.

Our next 9 Wine & Dine will be Saturday June 16 with a full on Pasta Night available following play.  Guests play for a $45.00 green fee which includes a $20.00 food and beverage credit for use upstairs following play.

Father’s Day is Sunday June 17.  We will have lunch and dinner specials with “Dad” in mind.  Please call 403-347-5441 to make your reservation.

The poster is up for the Red Deer Golf and Country Ladies Invitational.  The theme this year is Polka Dots and Plaid.  Sounds like a fun day Saturday August 11.  Check the Ladies locker room for details.

June is a busy month at the beautiful Red Deer Golf & Country Club.  On June 18 we host a group from the Royal Mayfair, June 25 The Rounders, Thursday June 28 a memorial that closes the Clubhouse from 1:30 – 4:30 pm and Friday June 29 the Canadian Society of Club Managers and their Club Presidents.

Very pleased to inform that the Red Deer Golf and Country Club was rated #82 in Canada based on the Canadian Golfer Magazine Reader’s Rankings.  A distinction Red Deer Golf and Country Club members can all take pride in.

Our first Discount Golf Day will be Monday July 2.  All guests will play for $60.00 plus GST that day.  Coupons aren’t required that day but for those of you haven’t picked yours up they are available (2 per adult member) at the Administration Office.  The coupons can be used any day.
