Greens after 1 week

These are after 1 week of growth. In one more week they will be perfect. Now thats how much we care about greens. Come golf Redstone this spring and see the Redstone difference

What makes you scratch your head?

It all started with the internet, then email, facebook, texting, youtube, on demand video and video games.  I have been encouraging people to get our children playing organized sport instead of playing with their PDA’s.  Heck it doesn’t need to be organized just play.  Obviously owning a Golf course I would love to see them golfing. But I really don’t mind if they never play golf as long as they play something.  Canadian Tire has a great program.  See below.

“Participating in sport helps kids develop physical and social skills. It helps build self-esteem. By helping kids get into the game, we’re equipping them with determination. And we’re giving them confidence that will extend beyond practices and games.

No kid should be left on the sidelines but in Canada 1 in 3 families cannot afford to enroll their kids in organized sports. That’s almost 750,000 kids every year who want to play, but just can’t.

Jumpstart aims to change that. Across Canada, Jumpstart has 330 Chapters, which are made up of volunteers from across the Canadian Tire enterprise and local community groups, such as local Parks and Recreation Departments, Boys and Girls Clubs and the YMCA/YWCA, among others.

Money raised within each Chapter stays within the community and goes directly to help kids participate in sport, dance or other organized physical activities. Jumpstart funding helps families that need a financial hand with registration, equipment and/or transportation costs.”

Lets get kids playing again! 

 On Saturday May 16th we have a charity Tournament called Jumpstart.  $10 dollars from every entry goes to Jumpstart.  Register by following this link.  http://redstoneresort.com/dining-and-events/events/.
