The Red Deer Golf and Country Club is having a good year. The course opened and has remained in great condition, and our Food and Beverage team and golf shop have had a full schedule with very few rain-outs. Many of our staff have left or will be leaving soon for school. I’d like to thank each and every one of them for choosing to work at the Red Deer Golf and Country Club, and their efforts on our behalf this summer.
All Adult members can pick up two discounted green fee tickets at the Administration Office. The coupons allow a guest fee of $60.00 instead of the regular member accompanied fee of $85.00. Other than during our 9, Wine & Dine Saturday afternoon/evening we expect a quiet weekend at the Club. Why not invite some friends, use your coupons and show us off!!

Chef Marion will prepare a Ukrainian Buffet and Wooden Nickle will entertain. Reservations are mandatory. The dinner is $35.00.
Congratulations to Connor Dawes for a hole in one on #5. Connor hit a 6 iron from the blue tees…he’s 13 years old and another RDGCC Junior playing great golf! Connor no doubt beat his father by 2 or 3 shots that hole. Brian is a former PGA of Canada Professional and the way things are going he may want to spend a little more time on the range…at least if he plans on remaining the best golfer in that house!!
Our roster book reads: “The Club expects a round of golf at the RDGCC should not take more than four (4) hours. It is each playing member’s responsibility to keep up to the group in front. Those players who cannot maintain the proper pace of play must let faster players behind play through. Our four (4) hour pace of play is not a measuring tool, common sense and courtesy is. If there is room in front of you and a group waiting behind please wave them through, then maintain pace.”
Cross your fingers and toes for an extended period of great weather this Fall.
