August 2nd Newsletter – Monte Vista Ladies Golf Day

Thirteenth ladies night and 38 ladies enjoyed a great day of golf.  The grey clouds discouraged a lot of ladies but it turned out to be the perfect weather.  We had 5 new ladies join us for the first time this year.  Welcome and we hope to see you again!

Our goal is simple…. enjoy golf, friends, laughs, a drink, and a bite to eat.

IMPORTANT:  The $15 you pay is for green fees only.  We negotiated this price with GolfSudbury in order to keep a reasonable rate for our ladies night.  In order to receive the discounted green fees of $15, you must pay $5 for prizes.  If any ladies do not want to pay $5 to join our Ladies Night but want to play 9 holes, the regular rate is $20.34.

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.


….3 ladies identified themselves as a senior and the winner is Arlene Fleming with a score of 25.  She wins a $10 voucher.

*****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 the Main Entrance of the golf course or given to one of the 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 a Mystery game on the front nine.  Oh, what shall it be?  The Mystery Game was selected after your golf game.  Three choices (1) only even numbered holes will be counted or (2) only uneven numbered holes will be counted or (3) 2 holes will be excluded from your score.  The Mystery game was picked by a blind draw and only Even numbered holes count.  The game was drawn by a newbie, Colette Vaillancourt.

$190 was collected and as agreed upon, $1 from the $5 is kept for our year end wrap-up night.  In order to join our wrap-up and enjoy a gift, ten (10) games must be played and $5 for prizes must be paid from May 10th to the wrap-up night which will take place at the end of September.


The balance of $152 is paid out by vouchers.  Once you pay your $5, add your name to the list.

  • Closest to Pin – $11 – Hertha Corry
  • Closet to Rope – $11 – Sue Prudhomme
  • Luck of the draw – $10 – Carole Goupil
