June 6th Newsletter – Monte Vista Ladies Golf Day

Fourth ladies night and     ladies enjoyed a round of golf with friends, wine and cheese.


Monte Vista has a cook by the name of Denise and we must admit she is doing a fabulous job on serving tasty good. Drop by and enjoy some delicious food and cold ones on the beautiful deck.


In order to ensure all ladies have a fun night, your committee ask that you make your tee times to match the arrival times of all players. If your tee time is at 5 pm, your group should be at the tee box ready to golf. If a player is late, do not proceed to the tee box until you confirmed with the pro shop the next available tee time. It causes delays for other groups who booked tee times. Each group should be following the group in front of them. There should never be 2 holes open between groups.


Today we played a 2 or 3 ladies’ scramble on the front nine followed by a fun night filled with laughter, wine and cheese. A special Thanks to Karen Yawney for providing free wine. Her continued sponsorship makes a lot of ladies happy!


Next Wednesday, we are playing a Mystery Game on the front nine. Mystery game will be decided after our golf round and it will either be even or odd numbered holes will count.


Lillian and staff were outstanding!!!! On behalf of all us, a BIG Special THANKS!!!

Different games are played weekly so please check the June schedule (besides $5 prize fee signup sheet).


For various reasons, there were some ladies who were unable to join us last year.  We sincerely hope that these issues have been resolved and can once again join our ladies’ night.
