Golf Shop News – April 16, 2019

Good Afternoon Members,

What an amazing Masters Golf Tournament.  Which was better? Tiger Woods in 2019 or Jack in 1986?  The debate will continue as to which Masters you enjoyed more. Personally, I thought Tiger’s performance was amazing and will never forget it.  Thank you to all the members who participated in the Masters Draft.  Kevin Clark was the Champion winning $1240 in golf shop gift certificates.  For full results please click on the link below.

Attention all Senior Men wanting to play in the Walter Sandquist Senior Men League. The deadline is this Friday at 5 pm.  Please contact Kirk Evans at if you want to enter a team or be placed on the sub list.  The Walter Sandquist Senior Men’s League is one of the most popular leagues here at the Red Deer Golf & Country Club.

We have some pretty cool merchandise in the golf shop this year.  The feature item this week is a metal Red Deer Golf & Country Club personalized ball marker.  They come in three colors, gold, silver and bronze and we can stamp as many as 8-10 characters on the ball marker for you.  Retail is $25 but member priced to $20.  Here is an example of what my personal ball marker looks like.
