A big thank you to all the Red Deer Golf and Country Club member volunteers. Your enthusiasm and expertise helped make the Sun Life Central Alberta Amateur and Guardian Capital Alberta Men’s Senior Championship successful. What an unusual and appreciated advantage it is when a club can call on 30 or 40 members to donate time for the benefit of others. Thank you!!
This Sunday August 09 we will close the first tee for maintenance at 6 pm. Our grounds crew will be needle tuning and top-dressing greens. This will affect play for a few days but is not nearly as disruptive as pulling cores. Our crew will apply a heavy top-dressing and do what we can to speed recovery. Heath wants to open the surfaces and break up thatch while they are healthy and growing. Sorry for the inconvenience!
The final edition of our Summer Social Series presented by Procom Insurance has been so well received that we are changing the format somewhat. Friday August 28 Randi Boulton and her band will entertain. Demand has been so good that we will close the Clubhouse that evening at 5 pm and only allow those with reservations upstairs. We will have a limited menu available in the Men’s Lounge for those following golf.
Reservations can be made by calling the office at 403-347-5441. We will announce the dinner arrangements (specials or buffet) later this week.
Our draft beer lines are wearing out and causing service problems and the occasional leak in the Ladies locker room. The trunk lines are scheduled to be replaced Monday August 17. That day there will be no draft beer. The washroom in the Ladies locker room will also be unavailable all day. Members and guests will be directed to the Junior Girl’s locker room. Ladies will have access to their lockers but workers will be in their locker room on and off until the job is complete. Thanks for your cooperation!
This Friday and Saturday we are back to tournament mode and host the Cadillac Member/Guest and the Central Alberta Ladies. Both committees have been hard at work and we look forward to good times and good golf at the beautiful Red Deer Golf and Country Club.
