April Turf Conditions

The course is in great condition! All 18 holes are open with excellent greens!

Golfers have been ecstatic to notice the improvement of our turf conditions in relation to our drainage improvements. We have so far installed approximately 25 kilometres of drainage improvements on our course. We will install another 10 kilometres this spring! 

On February 26th our team wore pink to support anti bullying day. 

Bullying is a problem in schools, workplaces, homes and over the internet. Although everyday awareness should be raised regarding bullying, February 26th was a special day dedicated to this. Wearing pink symbolizes that we as a society do not tolerate bullying of any kind.

SueBin Kim

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

 
After the one day event held at Langdon Farms Golf Club in Portland, Oregon SooBin Kim returns home one step closer to her dream. The Redwoods Graduate and Coach Brian Jung saw a great opportunity for competition in this Amateur event, “it is such an exciting feeling to have come down and played so well, I birdied 16 and 17 which helped to finish strong.”  
 
Through 18 holes Kim shot 3 under par, 68 to tie Taylor Babcock; with only 1 available spot the two would enter into a playoff match where Kim claimed her victory on the second playoff hole.
 
SooBin Kim has earned a spot in the LPGA Safeway Classic August 29th – September 1st at Columbia Edgewater Country Club in Portland, OR – this event will be the very first LPGA event for Kim where she will play with the best professionals on the LPGA tour.
 
Kim is currently ranked 3rd in Canada as an amateur player and back in 2008, Kim was the Canadian National Champion. Following the LPGA Safeway Classic Kim will head back for her Junior season at the University of Washington; currently ranked 9th in NCAA Division 1 Women’s Golf and as a sophomore, Kim was ranked 4th in the NCAA Division 1 Women’s individual rankings.

 

WE WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND A WARM WELCOME TO THE NEWEST MEMBER OF THE REDWOODS TEAM;
ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENT CAMERON WATT!
 
Cameron Watt - Assistant Superintendent

 

Cameron joins us from Kananaskis Country Golf Course following the worst flood in Alberta history as it ravaged through both Mt.Kidd & Mt. Lorette courses to pretty much destroy everything in its path; it took one day to tear the courses apart. Cameron was the assistant superintendent at Mt. Kidd for 15 months and during his time they had just re-done 29 of the 36 greens. “It is heartbreaking to see the courses in this condition.” 

 

     Before Redwoods: 

Cameron’s passion for golf began at age 13 where he first picked up the game and has never looked back. When Cam was 16 he started working at a local course in Kelowna; Shadow Ridge as a cart washer & outside services where he remained through high school. After graduation, Cam was ready for more responsibilities; he found a place on the maintenance team at Sunset Ranch for his first experiences in turf care. After 1 year of turf care he was hooked and felt the desire to pursue an education in horticulture; he moved out to Langley for a 2-year program at Kwantlan in turf management. Heading home for the summer Cam landed himself a job at Predator Ridge where he became the lead foreman for 4 years following graduation. Following Predator Ridge, he relocated to Two Eagles Golf Course for 5 years as the assistant superintendent and in 2012 the opportunity was offered to move to the beautiful Kananaskis country for a position as assistant superintendent at Mt. Kidd. 

     Outside of Work: 

Cameron’s passion is golf and still enjoys a great round when not on the course working. Away from the golf course Cam also enjoys a number of other activities; as a teenager in Kelowna he spent a great amount of time on the mountains snowboarding; Big White was his preferred choice! From outside to inside, it turns out Cam has expressed his excitement to be back in an area with a number of curling clubs as he really appreciates a good curling match. 

A man’s best friend, if Cam could do all of these activities with his dog Baxter he would but during summer he spends his time with Baxter on hiking adventures. 

WELCOME CAMERON, ANOTHER GREAT ADDITION TO OUR TEAM!

Langley's Sue Kim won her first Symetra Tour event in grand style Sunday, firing a final round nine-under 63 and then birdieing the first playoff hole to beat American Laura Kueny.

 

Kim, a former B.C. Junior Girls champion, earned $15,000 for her win at the Decatur-Forsyth Classic in Decatur, Ill. She finished the event at 10-under par.

Sunday's bogey-free 63 included nine birdies for Kim, who had started the final round tied for 36th.

The Symetra Tour is the official developmental tour of the LPGA Tour. The top 10 finishers on its money list at year's end earn full playing privileges on the 2014 LPGA Tour.

The win moved Kim into the top spot on the money list with nearly $32,000.

Kim has conditional status on this year's LPGA Tour.
