Congratulations to the Ing and McKee Insurance Commercial League team for winning both the regular season and playoffs.  Darcy Cavanaugh, Brad Romans, Blaine Cust, Dan Roadhouse, Jonathan Wenger, Gary Oosterhoff, Bill Robinson, and Patrick Monaghan are all 2x champions!  Well done!
Is it too early to talk about Thanksgiving?  The Red Deer Golf and Country Club will offer a turkey dinner special in addition to our regular Prime Rib on Sunday October 11.
The Red Deer Golf and Country Club is pleased to offer Troon cards again for the 2015/2016 off-season.  The Troon card is a frequent player card that offers special rates and offers at participating Troon facilities.  Benefits include up to 50% off golf fees, a one-time 2 for 1 at the Troon card rate at most of their courses, a best rate guarantee, 25% off rental clubs, golf shop and restaurant discounts and many more.  RDGCC members and other Alberta Private Club members have an opportunity to buy the cards at a significant discount. 
Here is an example of the 2016 pricing:
Arizona Two-Some   $212.00 (regular 425.00+)
Arizona Four-Some   $349.00 (regular 699.00+)

Red Deer Golf and Country Club members must sign up prior to Monday October 19.  Prices are in US dollars and once we pay for all RDGCC members the appropriate Canadian dollar amount will be billed to your account.
In 2015 we had roughly 30 members purchase Troon cards and most indicated that they will again this year.
RDGCC members are fortunate to also have reciprocal arrangements with Desert Island Golf Club in Rancho Mirage and Ironwood in Palm Desert.
Congratulations to long-time Red Deer Golf and Country Club member Jim Horne on recording the first eagle of his career.  Jim was roughly 100 yards out to a back-pin on #14.  After checking all 3 traps and the fringe surrounding the green he peeked in the hole and there it was!  Great shot!!
