A Week Ahead at the RGC

May 23, 2018

Dear Members,

I hope you all had a great long weekend! Whether you snuck out of town for some camping or enjoyed the heat here in Edmonton, I hope you got to spend some much needed time resting, eating and drinking, and spending time with your loved ones.

A friendly reminder about two major closures taking place at our Club in the coming weeks. Firstly, the Arena will be closed May 26 and reopening June 7 due to annual maintenance. During this time, all Arena programs have either been adapted for off-ice training or have been rescheduled. As well, the Squash Court floors are being resurfaced/sanded from May 28-30. All courts, both Singles and Doubles, will be closed for the work. If we have any early opening updates about either project, we will inform the Members via our social media, Club signage, and of course your weekly newsletter. Thank you everyone for your patience and understanding as we complete this very necessary work.

Good news, baseball fans! I am happy to announce that the RGC will have full access to a 12-person suite for the duration of the Edmonton Prospects’ season at RE-Max Field. Additionally, we have also secured eight General Seating admissions for our Members for each home game. Beginning Thursday, May 24, bookings will be open for both the RGC suite and General Seating tickets. This year, our Suite is available at a charge of $100 per game for you to enjoy with up to 11 more people. The eight General Admission seats are available at no charge on a first-come-first-served basis. If you are interested in attending any of the games, the season begins May 31, 2018. Contact Member Services today for more information and to secure your seats.

With this beautiful weather every day, I have been seeing more and more people visiting our neighbours at Victoria Golf Course. This inspired me to remind you all about our reciprocal relationships with both the Highlands Golf & Country Club and Glendale Golf & Country Club. If you are a Member in good-standing with the RGC, you are welcome to visit and play at either Club at specific times outlined on our website here. A letter of introduction is required from our Member Relations Manager, Lenora, before you may visit either Club. Please contact Member Services for more information at 780.482.2371. Happy Golfing!

Speaking of golf, I am thrilled to announce the annual Hackers Cup Golf Tournament is back!  Following the many years of organizing by Member Brian Schmierer, the Club has taken the lead on this year’s tournament and hopes to build on such a fantastic event. On Thursday, July 12, slice and dice with fellow golf enthusiasts at Victoria Golf Course. The cost per Golfer is $145, which includes 18-holes of Golf with a shared cart, pre-dinner mix and mingle with drinks, and an RGC-style plated dinner. Plus, as is our style, there will be tons of opportunities to win prizes! Register today for this awesome event on GameTime. For more information, please contact Charlene Gray, Recreation Manager, at recmanager@royalglenora.com.

Lobsterfest, another Member favourite, returns June 8 at the RGC. This East Coast event includes dinner and drinks for $69.95++/Member. If weather is permitting, we will have this event on our beautiful front patio. Book your spot through Member Services by June 4 and get ready to pucker-up to kiss the cod! Following Lobsterfest, we have two great Member events – Father’s Day Brunch on June 17 and Canada Day on Sunday, July 1. Reservations are open for all three events now.

A friendly reminder that all documents and communication pertaining to the potential Redevelopment Project may be found on our website here.

Have a great rest of your week! Enjoy the sun and remember to drink lots of water.
