May 31st Newsletter – Monte Vista Ladies Golf Day

Fourth ladies night and 32 ladies participated.  The weather was cold, windy and we even saw rain.   Despite the weather, the ladies who did golf made the best of it.   The course is in great shape so invite all your lady friends to join us.

A special Thanks to Karen & Sam Yawney for our free wine and cheese.  Lillian, Rachel, and staff had a gorgeous display of cheese, crackers, dips, and fruits.  Congrats ladies on an outstanding 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 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 – $10 – Connie Paquette
  • Closet to Rope – $10 – Paulette Carrierre
  • Luck of the draw – $8 – Hertha Corry


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 we played a 2 and 3 lady scramble on the back nine.  $160 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!
