Luckiest Man at Redstone

Matt Wolohan, the luckiest man at Redstone. Matt is a regular prize winner at mens night and tournaments and lived up to his name again last Wednesday winning another draw prize. This was our official starting week for Ladies and Mens night. It is a time for our members and guests to renew their friendships and rivalries. Redstone was the Mens night sponsor with the winners walking away with some great pro shop merchandise to start the year off right!

Thank you to Grace from Unforgettables at 907 Spokane Street in Trail for sponsoring our sunny/snowy/rainy Ladies Night. We had a very hardy group of 31 Ladies who were not scared off by a “little” weather. A reminder to all you ladies who are not members we have an incredible Ladies night special every Tuesday for $35.00 this includes your 9 holes of golf, dinner voucher for up to $12.00 and ladies night games. Dont have anyone to play with? Call the pro shop at 250-362-9141 and we can book you a tee time with a great group of girls!
Next weeks Mens & Ladies Night sponsor is Sysco. Call the Pro Shop to book your tee times!!!

Are you staying in town for the May long weekend? Saturday May 16th we are hosting the Canadian Tire Jumpstart Tournament. This is a two person team scramble format for a great cause. The Jumpstart program is more than just getting kids active. It is about giving financial strapped families the same chance for their kids to participate as their peers. No kid should be left out. Register now and lets raise some money for a great cause. Register on our website or give the pro shop a call.

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/.
