April 26, 2022 — Member Newsletter

The ‘In like a lion’ proverb is sure the case this Spring, but hopefully, ‘out like a lamb’ will follow soon! Our Annual Easter Egg Hunt was a success, with over 3,500 eggs found by our youngest members with a little help from the Easter Bunny. We wrapped up ski season with some fresh snow at Deer Valley while golfers enjoyed opening swings on the Front 9 of the Signature Course. This past weekend, members sang their hearts out at Karaoke Night at the Club – who knew we had such talent here at Red Ledges!

Tennis and Pickleball Etiquette

To ensure we are respecting other players and keeping a fun and safe environment on the courts please observe the following when using our facilities.

  • Practice responsible court booking behavior.
    • This means arriving and leaving on time for reservations.
    • If you cannot make a reservation, please make sure to cancel your booking.
  • Be courteous to those playing on an adjacent court.
    • Wait until a point is over to walk across to your court or move a pickleball net.
    • If your ball rolls onto another court please call out “Let” or “Ball on”, this is to ensure the safety of a player who may step on a ball.
  • Roll away Pickleball nets after use and put any equipment back in storage bins.
  • Please leave furniture in their position, leave courts as you found them.
  • Pick up what you bring in, including your personal gear and any litter.

  • Please always repair your ball marks on the greens.

  • Allow faster golfers to play through.
