June 28th Newsletter – Monte Vista Ladies Golf Day

Eighth ladies night and 49 ladies participated.  The weather was perfect and the breeze kept all the bugs away.

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 – Jacquie Plaxton
  • Closet to Rope – $14 – Paulette Carriere (she was on the line)
  • Luck of the draw – $14 – Karen Croteau
  • Luck of the draw – $14 – Marion Simon


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 outstanding.  All women who enjoyed the special buffet loved it and are entitled to win a Special for their next Ladies’ Night.  This week’s winner is Marlene Bevilacqua.

Today we played a 2 or 3 ladies scramble on the back nine.  Seniors are included with all other golfers.  After all, it is a team effort.

$245 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 $196 is paid out by vouchers.  Here are this week’s winners of a $14 voucher:

2 ladies scramble

  • Tracey Crozier & Erikka Sandstrom- Score 38
  • Lise Gladu & Chantal Moncion – Score 40

3 ladies scramble

  • Tracy Vaillancourt, Jacquie Plaxton & Paulette Carriere – Score 35
