Welcome to Jesse Bjornson, the newest shareholder of the Red Deer Golf and Country Club. Jesse has played for several years as an Associate, and knows this is the Club he wants to play long term. Jesse owns Bjornson Insurance Agencies (The Co-Operators) and regularly participates and sponsors Club events. Thanks for your support Jesse!!
Congratulations to Rob Weddell for a hole-in-one yesterday on #17. The ace was his first at the RDGCC (his other was made at a Club in Mesa) and Jason Langelaar, Garth Evans, and Rob Bucholz made up his foursome. Robbie says it was a great shot…..but listening to him describe his rounds upstairs he must have been surprised that it took so long. It always sounds to me like he’s never hit a bad shot!!
