Congratulations to Don Rathgeber for his hole-in-one on #5 yesterday. Looking at his membership file Don has been a member here since 1991 and yesterdays was his first ace. He was playing with Bob Schnell, Jim Foster and Grant Edmonds. His Thursday buddies were glad he had one credible witness. Don was heard later upstairs to say that had he known people would be so nice to him once he started buying drinks on the host tab he would’ve paid more attention, aimed better, and tried harder on par 3’s years ago!! I predict another ace for Don in the very near future.
During the week of the Canadian Women’s Amateur we have requested and been given a number of tee times at other provincial golf clubs where our members can play at no charge. We hope that all Red Deer Golf and Country Club members visit and watch the ladies competition one or two times…but appreciate that a week without golf can be painful.
The tee times will be available by telephone only one week in advance. So Monday July 15 call for Monday July 22. Call 403-340-4460 commencing at 7 am each day. The following rules for booking will apply:
1. Members can book a maximum of one tee time per phone call.
2. First come first served.
3. Each Red Deer Golf and Country Club member can play each host facility a maximum of one time during this no-charge period. **Note that there are limited times each day (especially Thursday) and that every club listed may not have provided a time each day.
Thanks to the Edmonton Country Club, the Derrick Golf and Winter Club, Priddis Greens Golf and Country Club, Earl Grey Golf Club, Blackhawk, Speargrass Golf Club, Highlands Golf Club, the Glencoe Golf and Country Club, the Glendale Golf Club, the Winston Golf Club, Northern Bear, Silver Springs, and Carnmoney Golf Club for their cooperation as we host the 106th Canadian Women’s Amateur. Power carts are at regular rates. We hope you choose to support these friends with a beverage or meal before or after your rounds. We appreciate all clubs for supporting us.
