The 106th Canadian Women’s Amateur will be held Monday July 22 – Friday July 26.  156 participants from around the world.  We already have a few on the course for practice rounds.

The golf course and practice facilities will be closed to member use Monday thru Friday inclusive.  We will re-open on Saturday July 27.  We had expected to re-open on Friday evening, but will use that time for a maintenance procedure on our greens.  Remember no hitting balls, use of the putting green, or instruction available that week.

The clubhouse is open to members and guests throughout the competition.  We invite you to bring your friends, watch some great golf and to enjoy a good meal and cold beverage.

Thanks to all Red Deer Golf and Country Club members for their terrific support of the Canadian Women’s.  Over 100 volunteers will make the tournament a success.  31 of the players have been billeted.  Community-minded businesses have stepped up and sponsored in a big way.  Many of the top-ranked ladies amateur’s in the world are coming to Red Deer.  We hope you all take the time to watch some good golf and support the tournament.  In any event sincere thanks to all for letting us host the Red Deer Golf and Country Club way.  Special thanks to Host Committee Chair Phil Pattison and his wingmen Barclay White and Mike Phelps for their efforts the past 8 or 9 months.

On Saturday July 20 we host a wedding on 8a and a reception in the clubhouse following.  The upstairs in the clubhouse will close at 2 pm that day…and the driving range be closed from 3 -5 pm as guests get to and from the ceremony.

The RBC Wealth Management Central Alberta Amateur will be held August 3, 4, 5.  There are still spots available in this popular event.  Entry forms are available at the golf shop or thru Admin.

The Red Deer Golf and Country Club Ladies Invitational is Saturday August 10.  Posters are up in the ladies locker room and entry forms are available at Admin.

Chairman Chung Mah and his committee have done good work organizing the Club Championship which is scheduled for August 24 and 25 with entries being taken in the golf shop.  The entry fee is 100% spent on prizes with golfers also getting a burger bar, a full serve banquet at the prize presentation, breakfast sandwiches, and special prices on drinks.  There is entertainment Saturday following the horse race.  The Club Championship is a “can’t miss” event for our members socially…and a great way to annually measure your game.
