Good day Golfers, The golf course is looking superb and the forecast is great for the coming weeks. The golf club is doing very well this year despite the numerous restrictions. We would like to thank all golfers for their patience and understanding. It has been a challenge for everyone, including the employees, and your support is greatly appreciated.
June 50/50 - The June 50/50 jackpot was won by George Starkewski, from Calgary. He took home $942. He will be graciously donating $471 back to the club, as well as purchasing some balls and other items from the pro shop all in an effort to support our club. Thank you Mr. Starkewski.
Club Championships - We will be hosting our annual Club Championship Event on August 9, 2020. We will be starting tee times at 8 AM and will book as many tee times as participants. New this year will have the ability to book your own foursomes from the event participants. This will enable you to play with your buddies, friends, or family member as long as they are in the event. Once the number of participants is determined, and the tee sheet is blocked for the event, you may also select your preferred tee time. The cost is $50 if paid by July 27 and $60 after that date. The last day for entries will be August 5, 2020.
Mid-Season Memberships - We will be offering our mid-season memberships this year starting July 15, 2020. See our pro shop staff for more details.
Hitting Nets - The new hitting nets are almost completed. This facility will be a true asset to our club. We will now have a practice area that is functional and aesthetically pleasing. Once the final touches are completed, it will be open for use. For this year golfers will need to use their own golf balls to practice as we do not have an efficient system to ensure all practice balls are sanitized. More information will be forthcoming regarding this area in the coming days.
July 50/50 - The current jackpot is $117. Get your tickets in the pro shop
Members Match Play - presented by Body Building Depot - Great job of completing the matches by the specified timelines. Good luck to all competitors. If you require assistance with scoring please do not hesitate to ask.
Srixon Golf Ball Sale - The order for golf balls should be coming in early next week and we will have the balls you ordered ready for pickup when you check in to play. For those not on the tee sheet, I will contact you directly to make arrangements to pick them up. Thank you for your support - we sold 189 dozen balls.
Deck - The final touches were completed to the deck and it looks outstanding. We have two 50 inch TVs on display - thank you Hugh Bice for your generous donation.
HALO Golf Event - We are hosting a fundraiser for HALO. For the week of July 6-12, 2020 golfers may play a 9 hole round of golf in support of HALO. Details can be found on our website, in the pro shop, or on the website for HALO Air Ambulance.
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. I want to take this time to thank the hard-working team in the pro shop. They have had to deal with a significant amount of change this year and have handled it in the most professional manner. The service level and support each team member displays is nothing short of outstanding. Thank you, Krystal, Eric, Brady, Lauren, Jaubron, Victoria, Lindsay, and Claire.
