Our newest shareholder is Ron Goss. Ron is the owner of Black Creek Developments Inc. I’m sure you have seen several of his commercial projects being built throughout Central Alberta. Ron had been a member previously and joined again in 2018 as a non-shareholder. He is looking forward to many more years at the Red Deer Golf and Country Club. Welcome Ron, and thanks again for choosing the Red Deer Golf and Country Club!!
The recent weather (and Thanksgiving) has contributed to us making some changes to the Club Calendar:
- The Senior Men will have a fall wind-up on Tuesday September 25.
- The Solheim Cup has been moved to September 29 and 30.
- The Ironman will be held Sunday October 14………the final day for regular play will be Saturday October 13.
- Note that the COURSE WILL BE CLOSED Monday October 1st as we aerate the greens. Heath and crew will be pulling cores and the greens will take some time to heal. Guest green fees will be at our reciprocal rate of $60 plus gst Oct 02 thru Oct 08.
- ANOTHER IMPORTANT CHANGE is that the golf shop will open and commence taking telephone bookings at 7 am for the remainder of the year.
The Men’s Senior Wind-Up is a can’t miss as for the first time all year the A Division will duke it out against those bad boys in Division B. The $20 entry fee includes an entertainer and meal following play. You can sign up at the golf shop……and Kirk will team up singles where possible.
