June 14th Newsletter – Monte Vista Ladies Golf Day

Sixth ladies night and 45 ladies participated.  It was great to hear so much laughter…that could only mean that the ladies are enjoying our Ladies Night.


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.  Based on these rates, there is no reason not to join our Ladies Night and enjoy golfing with friends while having fun.  It’s a win win situation for all!


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 – $15 – Yolande Houle
  • Closet to Rope – $15 – Carole Smith


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 you played a Shamble on the back nine.  Like in a scramble, all members of your team tee off and the best ball of the team is selected. All players move their balls to the spot of the best ball. From this point, all members of the team play their own ball into the hole and record their individual scores.  The format was for the entire 9 holes.  Personally, my score improved thanks to my friends.


$225 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!


The balance of $180 is paid out by vouchers.  Here are this week’s winners of a $15 voucher:

  • Hertha Corry (score 40)
  • Sue Prudhomme (score 42)
  • Paulette Carriere (score 42)
  • Karen Croteau (score 43)
  • Chantal Moncion (score 44)
  • Shelly Willis (score 44)
  • Carole Smith (score 45)
  • Jodie Giroux (score 45)
  • Penny Lane (score 45)


6 ladies participated in our new Senior Division.  As the majority of ladies were in the other division, more vouchers are awarded to that division.  Once the Senior Division expands, vouchers will increase accordingly.  Here is this week’s winner of a $15 voucher:

  • Carmen Leduc (Score 43)


Based on the number of seniors, vouchers are proportionally handed out.  If you choose not to indicate “senior” next to your name, your score will be included with the other ladies.


Next Wednesday, we are playing your own game and all lifts from the sand traps are free.
