2020 President's Report

2020 has been a different experience for all of us. Many of the regular events at SSR were cancelled or modified to comply with the Covid-19 restrictions.

The big difference this year, is the increased play by members and green fee players. As a result, the course is somewhat stressed, and the level of wear and tear is much more that normal. I am encouraged to see the increased level of maintenance and the commitment of ownership to execute the plans developed by our General Manager and his team.

The Adopt-a-Hole program continues to be very helpful. Thank you to those who have volunteered. We recognize that it is somewhat difficult to access the course during this busy period so this will be a discussion point going forward.

I want to thank the entire Board for their efforts this year. Even though Covid-19 has put a damper on many events, we have had a very successful year. I want to that Jimmy Fraser and Dianne Feist for their creative thinking to ensure the Men’s and Ladies Clubs were active during this period. Thanks to Paul Klarenbeek for the work on the handicap committee and Senior Men’s.

Dianne Feist and Susan Fraser have completed their term on the Board and are resigning. Thanks to both of you for the work you have put in during your term.

It has been a pleasure working with the SSR Team. The SSR Staff have been an incredible support and I thank Jeff and his team for everything they do.

It is my view that we are moving in a very positive direction and I look forward to a successful 2021.

2021 Ladies Club Captain Report

2021 AGM Report

We have had a busy season and are very happy with the participation in our events. We hosted 3 Member Tournaments plus the Championship.

We congratulate our Club Champion, Marion Radcliffe who fought a battle against highly skilled players to win Low Gross. Our overall Low Net Winner is Shelley Schwaerzle.

We have re-launched the Ringer Board and next year we will be able to run that program through Golf Genius.

A very popular program was the Clinic with the Pro which was run by our Head Pro, Mike Loewen. We hope that Mike will be willing to do that again next year.

We also launched a Newsletter and the Lady members appreciate the communication feature. They are all posted on the Sunset Ranch Ladies website.

We have 2 Leagues which were very well attended all season. Thank you to the organizers of these 2 leagues.

The Ladies Classic needed to be cancelled this year but the Ladies 2 Ball was very successful, once again. We look forward to the Classic to come back in 2022.

There were 2 Home and Away events organized with Predator Ridge and with Harvest Golf Club. A third with Spullamacheen was cancelled due to the wildfires in the area.

The Ladies Club is looking forward to the 2022 season and we have a wish list which Jeff, Mike and Cody don’t know about yet but we are confident that they will be as willing to help as they have been this year.

We have many people to thank for our successful season and look forward to working with our new recruits for 2022
