July 5th Newsletter – Monte Vista Ladies Golf Day

Ninth ladies night and 56 ladies participated.  The sun was shining with a high of 27 degrees… can’t ask for more.

More ladies are joining our Ladies Night and I encourage everyone to continue to bring friends.  Our goal is simple… enjoy golf, friends, laughs, a drink and if you are hungry, the food and service is outstanding.

GOLF TOURNAMENT for Easter Seals Kids will be held on Friday, July 21st at Monte Vista.  $125 each includes golf, specialty holes, gift bags, etc.  Come out to support a very worthy cause.

IMPORTANT:  The $15 you pay is for green fees only.  We negotiated this price with GolfSudbury so we can 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 starting tonight 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.


*****REMEMBER to write your full name clearly on score cards and your scores.  Your score cards must be dropped off in 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.



Once you pay your $5, add your name to the list.

  • Closest to Pin – $14 – Paulette Carriere
  • Closet to Rope – $14 – Sue Prudhomme
  • Luck of the draw – $14 – Johanne Lamoureux


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.

Tonight’s special was a 7” pizza and macaroni salad.  A Caesar drink was today’s specialty… mmm.

Today we played our own game on the front nine but only your putts counted.  At the end of the round, Kerri McClure drew to decide if low, medium or high putts would win and she picked low putts (3 papers were folded when she picked a “1”, representing low putts).  Today, all ladies are included in one category as only putts were counted.

$280 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.  You still have a lot of golf nights to meet that goal!

  • 14 putts – Freida Nassas
  • 14 putts – Cheri Ross
