We will move onto all 18 greens tomorrow morning.  Thanks for your patience!

We still have weak areas on some of the greens and appreciate your cooperation walking around those areas rather than across them whenever possible.

This Sunday May 26 is the start of our annual men’s Commercial League.  Good luck to all participants.

On Monday we host the PGA of Alberta’s Tournament of Champions.  It is a shotgun start so there will be no member play until 3 pm.  Red Deer Golf and Country Club will be represented by Head Professional Dean Manz and Club Champion Carter Graf.  They tee off on #1 for those of you interested in watching.

On Wednesday May 29 we will be running two shotgun starts. One at 9 am and another Men’s Night shotgun at 2:30 pm.  Please plan your day accordingly.

On Friday May 31 we will host our first Red Deer Golf and Country Club Couple’s Night.  Couple’s Night’s are open to RDGCC members only and their spouses/girlfriends.  It is a shotgun start and should be a lot of fun.  You can sign up at the golf shop.

The Scottsville Spring Parent Child tournament is Sunday June 2.  Sign up in the golf shop for this 5 pm shotgun start.

Our Riverview Insurance Solutions Central Alberta Seniors is Thursday June 6.  You can enter at the golf shop or the Administration Office.  Thanks to Derrick Peterson and the gang at Riverview for their continued support!

Alberta Golf recently held a course rating seminar at Canyon Meadows in Calgary.  Red Deer Golf and Country Club members Merv Dusyk and Laurel Goodacre were 2 of 40 who participated.  Hat’s off to Merv and Laurel for their commitment to the game, and here’s hoping they carry on throughout the process.  Alberta Golf needs people like them helping out…we will all benefit as a result of their efforts and expertise.

Speaking of Alberta Golf did you know that all Red Deer Golf and Country Club members belong to it and Golf Canada!  Stewards of the game, the volunteers and staff of Alberta Golf run rules clinics, and administer handicaps.  Other member benefits include up to $2,500 reimbursement for damaged, lost or stolen equipment, up to $2,500 reimbursement towards travel related equipment protection, availability of personalized equipment ID labels, broken window protection (up to $1,000), golf cart accident coverage up to $2,500, as well as access to the rules of golf.  Golf Canada is changing for the better and Alberta Golf is leading the way.

The Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship is fast approaching.  Volunteer forms are available at the Administration Office and online at Golf Canada.  We will have 156 participants from all over the world.  Sponsorship opportunities are available and we will utilize a volunteer pool of 100.  There will be more information sent out next week…but prior to that BIG thanks to Phil and Brenda Pattison, Barclay and Renee White, Ken and Kate Evanecz, Dale and Majella Russell, Greg and Eileen Atkinson, Rich and Linda Roberts, and Mike Phelps for accepting larger roles.  It is an event that the Red Deer Golf and Country Club is very well suited for.
