August 23rd Newsletter – Monte Vista Ladies Golf Day

Sixteenth ladies night and 58 ladies enjoyed a great day of golf.  The cooler weather definitely had no impact on our numbers and the light rain did not deter these determined ladies from golfing.  Great job troopers!  Way to hang tough!

LAST NIGHT FOR 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, 8 ladies identified themselves as a Senior and the winner receives a $16 voucher:

  • Score 48 – Sue Pitre

*****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 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 back nine and all ladies got 2 Mulligans for 9 holes.


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 at 6:30 pm.

October 4th will be a 4 ladies scramble and if you play, you MUST ensure that you will complete your 9 holes by 6:30 pm.  Ladies Night will continue in October as long as daylight permits.  A 4 ladies scramble will always be the format and if you only have 3 players, alternate the 4th shot on every hole.


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 is now available for purchase…Lasagna, Garlic Bread, Caesar salad, coffee/tee and dessert at a cost of $15/person.

The balance of $232 is paid out by vouchers.  Once you pay your $5, add your name to the list.

  • Closet to Rope – $16 – Yolande Houle

Luck of the draw receives a $12 voucher:
