In spite of the weather forecast and day long rainfall we still had a total of 34 ladies join us to celebrate our first scheduled Cedar Green Monday Ladies Golf Day. Although we did not play golf this evening we did enjoy this reunion to bring in the 2018 golf season, which speaks well for our loyal repeat golfers and the four new participants who joined us for the first time.
Everyone who was present for this evening’s event was credited for their first day as a participant in Monday Ladies Golf Day, which will be reflected in our attendance records for the 2018 season. As well, all 34 ladies qualified for the random prize draws including our final grand prize. Winners are listed below.
To help kick off the official opening day, our major sponsor Sam Yawney, the owner Pro Golf Liquidators donated a Taylor Made Ladies driver as the grand prize. For the past five years Sam has donated prizes every Monday Ladies Golf Night and has expressed his sincere gratitude for the support lady golfers in our community have shown, by joining us on so many Mondays.
For our opening evening, Brian Cattapan, Chef and Food & Beverage manager) offered a special $4 price on all alcohol beverages, which was a drawing card for the festivities.
Once again this year we have the same volunteers working together to ensure a successful Monday Ladies Day. Our committee members are Lisa Burke, Maryann Zanchetta, Sylvie Bloom and Linda Collison. Linda is responsible for keeping attendance records, and writing our weekly newsletter which she emails to the ladies who are on our distribution list. If you would like a copy of the newsletter emailed directly to you, please provide your current email address on the sheet that is circulated in the clubhouse each week. Otherwise you can read the weekly newsletter posted on the Cedar Green website, found at the following link: https://golfsudbury.com/monday-ladies-golf-day or the copy posted on our bulletin board in the Ladies locker room. For the month of May, Linda will be out of the country so Sylvie will be responsible for posting the weekly newsletters. The attendance record will be reconciled upon Linda’s return and will be posted in the Ladies locker room as of May 29th. Once the spreadsheet is posted in the locker room, we recommend you check the list periodically to ensure your participation has been accurately recorded.
Again this season we are offering golfers who join us at the 6:00 pm Shotgun Start the option to participate in the TWOONIE POT at a cost of $2.00. Should your tee-shot land within the flagpole length on the designated par 3 hole (hole#3 or hole #16), you will win cash in the pot. Should more than one person land within the flagpole length of the hole, the pot will be split between the winners. If no one is successful achieving this goal, the money will be accrued every week until a golfer succeeds.
Remember golfers who participate in 12 Monday Ladies’ Golf games between May 1st and September 11th, will qualify for the bonus draws when they attend our wrap-up evening on September 18th. Last season prizes were provided by over 57 businesses in the Sudbury and Algoma region, some valued over $250. This year Sam Yawney is donating a special bonus prize of a flight to anywhere in North America, for our wrap up evening.
Next week on Monday May 8th, we will be playing a 2 person scramble format at the 6pm shotgun start. The following instructions should be distributed to all teams by the proshop or by the starter.
May 8th – 2 Person Scramble Format for 6:00 pm Shotgun Start
- Write the full names of the ladies forming your 2 person team on you score card.
- Each player of your team will hit an initial tee shot.
- The team will then decide the best shot and each player will hit their next shot from that location (spot).
- This format will repeat for each shot thereafter until completion of the hole.
- Record the team’s score on your score card.
Improving a Ball’s Lie
- Each team must mark the spot of each selected spot with a marker.
- Once marked, players may lift and clean their ball.
- Players may then place their ball no more than one club length from the original spot.
- This placement CANNOT be nearer to the hole nor may it improve the original lie.
- Placement of the ball may improve the team’s stance, swing, and line of sight as long as it is within the one club length limit.
- On the putting green, the ball may be placed one putter head length from the original spot no nearer to the hole.
- The holing of any shot will constitute the end of the hole for that team and that score will be final.
- This situation typically occurs when a player misses a putt and decides to putt out before the second player takes their putt.
- In this case, the second player will not have an opportunity to attempt the original putt.
Prize vouchers given to the winning teams will be divided equally by the number of ladies on that team.
If you are unable to book your starting hole on the Sign-up Sheet that was this evening, you can call the proshop at 705-560-1090, and the staff will assign a starting hole.
