We hope everyone is enjoying the summer heat. On August 9, 2020 we have our first event of the year, our annual Club Championship. The field is set and the tee times will start at 8:00 AM and we would like to wish each player good luck.
Tee Times - We have approached the mid-way point of the season and the daylight hours are now getting shorter. The last tee time for 18 holes will now be 4:50 PM. We will still have 9 hole tee times available up to 6:50 PM. We will progressively contract the tee times as the daylight hours diminish.
Green Fee Special - On August 2 we started a green fee special which is in effect on Sundays to Wednesdays After 1PM. The green fee rate for 18 holes is only $30. As of today the number of golfers taking advantage of this offer has been very good.
Members Scramble - The Members Scramble scheduled for August 15, 2020 is SOLD OUT. Thank you for the outstanding response. We look forward to a great day of golf and food with friends.
Turfcare Team - Our grounds team is working very hard to keep up with the hot weather. Despite the many days above 30 degrees and the winds that dry the course out, it is still in outstanding condition. We ask that each golfer ensures they give our Turfcare team the right of way on the golf course, thus if a Turfcare team member is in front of you, please ensure they wave you on before you hit. This will enable them to work in a safe manner. Additionally, we ask that if you wish to say hello or thank them for a job well done, please do so; if you have any constructive feedback please bring it to my attention in the office and I will discuss any issues with Jordy Sautner, our superintendent.
Monthly 50/50 - Congratulations to Gary Haubrich, he won $1059 in the July 50/50 draw. The August 50/50 draw is currently at $390.
Social Distancing - Please be reminded that it is still a requirement of the Alberta Government for individuals to social distance if they are not in the same household. We all need to do our part to keep our members and guests safe.
I would also like to thank our members for their continued support. Change is never easy and the amount of change this year has been significant, however, the overwhelming support has been very much appreciated.
