August 16th Newsletter – Monte Vista Ladies Golf Day

Fifteenth ladies night and 57 ladies enjoyed a great day of golf.  The weather was unbelievable and ladies had the opportunity to enjoy a round of golf with friends.

NEW DIVISION:  We have decided that a Senior Ladies Division will be added to our Ladies Night but only when you play your own ball (not a 2 or 3 ladies scramble).  All ladies who are presently 65 years of age or older will qualify for this division.  The onus is on you to indicate the word “senior” next to your name on the score card.  If it not indicated as such, you will not be considered for the “senior” division.  Closest to the rope and pin will remain as one category.  We hope this new division will be inviting to other ladies.

This week, 6 ladies identified themselves as a Senior and the winner receives a $12 voucher:

  • Yolande Houle – Score 43


*****REMEMBER to write your full name clearly on score cards and your scores.  Your score cards must be dropped off in the metal box in Main Entrance of the golf course or given to Ladies reps.

*****Once you have taken 10 shots, pick up your ball and mark 10 on your score card for that hole.



When you pay your $5.00 for Ladies Night and $2.00 for Chase the Ace, you do not need to be present to collect any prizes.  Prizes are left with at the Pro Shop so you can pick it up when you join us for your next Ladies Night.

Today we played our own game on the front nine and were given a 3-foot string to help reduce your score.  $285 was collected and as agreed upon, $1 from the $5 is kept for our year end wrap up night.


IMPORTANT CHANGE:  In order to join our wrap up and enjoy a gift, ten (10) games must be played by September 27th and $5 for prizes must be paid from May 10th.  The wrap up night will take place on Wednesday, October 4th.  Rain or shine, the wrap night will take place and we will work in conjunction with Lillian to provide a delicious buffet.

***Wrap up Buffet tickets will be available to purchase on August 23rd for Lasagna, Garlic Bread, Caesar salad, coffee/tee and dessert at a cost of $15/person.


The balance of $228 is paid out by vouchers.  Once you pay your $5, add your name to the list.

  • Closest to Pin – $12 – Toni Calabrese
  • Closet to Rope – $12 – Sue Prudhomme (1 mm from rope)
  • Luck of the draw – $12 – Beverly Speck
