News release from the Red Deer Golf & Country Club


Celebrating 100 Years of Golfing Excellence

The Red Deer Golf & Country Club is celebrating their 100th Anniversary. A variety of club events will be held this summer to recognize the various aspects of the Club’s connectivity to the local community, and the golf community locally, provincially, and nationally.

In September, the Red Deer Golf & Country Club will be hosting the Canadian Men’s Senior Championship September 5th – 9th, 2022. It will be one of the marquee events culminating a season of golfing experiences for the storied Red Deer Golf & Country Club (RDGCC).

The Canadian Men’s Senior Championship has been held since 1962 and has become one of Canada’s most popular amateur golf events. One hundred fifty-six male amateur golfers aged 55 or over will qualify for this national championship by qualifying at the various Provincial championships held across the country. The field will include the finest Canadian Senior Golfers as well as some discretionary international exemptions. The champion will earn a coveted exemption into the 2023 U.S. Senior Amateur Championship.

Over 150 volunteers from both the Red Deer Golf & Country Club and the community will be on hand to host the National and International competitors and their families. Registration information and further history of the Championship, including past winners, can be found on the Golf Canada web site at 2022 Canadian Men’s Senior Championship. Registrations opened in March 2022.

The origins of Red Deer Golf & Country Club date back to July 3, 1919. The first course was located on leased land on what is now known as West Park Estates. At that time, the six fairways were quite short, and the Club had to install extra fencing to keep the cattle out. Sheep were acquired to keep the greens trimmed, and gophers left several unplanned holes throughout the course. Realizing the need for a better property and more land to enhance the golfing experience, 175 acres of land was purchased to the north across the Red Deer River. The course was organized on its current site in 1922 and is among the 150 oldest continuously active golf courses in Canada.

The Red Deer Golf & Country Club held an official opening for the new course and Clubhouse on August 22, 1922, while hosting the inaugural Central Alberta Amateur Golf Tournament,

Alberta’s oldest continuously running men’s three-day amateur tournament Red Deer Golf & Country Club has hosted numerous provincial and national championships over its 100-year history, including the Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship in 2019. “The legacy of hosting the Canadian Men’s Senior Championship will provide our members, guests and the community of Red Deer and central Alberta with an unparalleled golf and social experience and will provide an opportunity to enhance the sport of golf further;” said Hugh McPherson. -2022 Canadian Men’s Sr. Championship Host Committee Chair.
