We have a number of newly planted trees that have screens around them to protect them from becoming an easy meal for the deer.  Please deal with these as immovable obstructions (rule 24-2).  Golfers are allowed relief (drop within one club length, no nearer the hole, of his nearest point of relief) if the screen interferes with his swing or stance.
There is no line of site relief.  Play staked trees under the same rule.  Those trees with no stakes are in play.
We have had many nice comments regarding the new colour of the on-course washrooms and rain shelters.  Those projects were started last year with the donation of new flooring from Central Alberta Tile One and Shannon Moench.  Our members care!
This Sunday from 12-2 pm a member of The Raven at Verado and the new Tom Lehman course at Victory will be in the Clubhouse.  Doug Fasth will be promoting a Canadian PGA Pro-Am they will host this winter, and membership opportunities at both facilities.  Verado is 20 or 30 minutes west of downtown Phoenix.
Good luck to all participants in the Club Championship this weekend.  Let’s hope this good weather continues.  Following play Saturday Chef Marion is offering a Ukrainian Buffet and Vintage will entertain from 8:30 – 11 pm.  This is the third installment of our Summer Social Series presented by Procom Insurance.  Reservations recommended.
There have been several requests in the last week to 10 days that I remind the membership that those that eat sunflower seeds should keep the shells in their pocket and not all over the greens and tee boxes.
Congratulations to Gord Kingcott for a hole-in-one on #2 yesterday afternoon.  Not only was Gord lucky enough to be rewarded for a great golf shot…but he was participating in Men’s Night and wins a cash prize sponsored by Ing and McKee Insurance!!
As we play in various tournaments and Club events we take sponsorship of hole-in-ones, meals and prizes for granted.  Thanks to the partners at Ing and McKee and all our 2015 season sponsors.  Your generosity makes a difference!!
…and what goes around comes around.  While Gord benefitted from sponsorship yesterday he reciprocates with his involvement in the Sun Life Central Alberta Amateur.
It’s all good!!…and makes the Red Deer Golf and Country Club a great place to play and belong.
