For the month of February…your golf shop will be open from 9 – 5 Monday – Friday and Saturday 10 – 4.  This is a great time to get clubs re-gripped or to stop in for a visit and view the new stock as it arrives.

Would a small corporate outing for 24-48 of your best clients and key staff work for you?  We have several dates available and would love to host and show off your golf course.  Call me at 403-347-5441 to inquire.  We also have some Mondays open for larger shotgun start tournaments.

The City of Red Deer is a vibrant place.  Have you purchased tickets on the Kinsmen Dream Home yet?…the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre Dream Home?…the Red Deer Hospice No Show Gala?…or tickets for the fast approaching 2019 Winter Games?  Red Deer Golf and Country Club members often play lead roles in such events.  Their enthusiasm, vision and community spirit is contagious and makes this city a better place.  Congratulations and good luck to all…

Here are some more changes to the rules this year:

Alignment
No one can help the player with his alignment for the stroke.  This is an essential skill which the player must do for himself.

A caddie is NO longer allowed to stand behind the player to help with alignment.  At the moment the player begins to take his stance, the caddie must not deliberately stand directly behind the player.  The penalty is two strokes in stroke play.

There is one exception which applies only on the Putting Green.  The penalty can be avoided if the player backs away and starts again without the caddie directly behind him.  Provided the player backs away and starts again on the Putting Green, there is no penalty.

The player cannot set something down (such as a club) to help with alignment for a stroke.  Once this is done the penalty is two strokes in stroke play.

Clubs and Balls

Clubs
No matter how a club is damaged, even by abusing it, the player can continue to use the club in its damaged state for the rest of the round, but he will NOT be allowed to replace it.

There will be NO replacement of a club unfit for play (such as a cracked driver face), unless the damage is caused by an outside influence or natural forces.  No matter what the nature or cause of the damage, the damaged club is treated as conforming for the rest of that round only.

The player will be allowed to have the damaged club repaired but the repair is limited to the original components of the club – the same grip, shaft and clubhead.  Damage that existed prior to the round must not be repaired.

A club MUST still conform when starting a new round or when starting a play-off in stroke play, if it is to be used.  There is NO penalty for carrying a non-conforming club, only for using it.

Balls
The player is NO longer required to announce that he is lifting the ball to determine if it is cut or cracked or for identification.  Simply mark the ball and lift it.

Cut or Cracked replaces the term Ball Unfit for Play.  Hence a ball out of shape may not be replaced.  A ball can only be replaced if it is cut or cracked and that damage happened on the same hole.
