UPCOMING EVENTS

Ringer’s Event- 6/27-8/27

Both Men and Women are encouraged to sign up for our season long Ringer’s event. A ringer event is a great way to have some fun by tracking your best personal scores on every hole. The entry fee is $10.00. All that is required from our golfer’s is to return your signed and attested scorecard to the Pro Shop and we will track your season for you. Challenge yourself and watch your scores improve!

Junior Golf

The 2018 Junior golf season is well underway. Lessons, Clinics, and golf schools have been set on the Golf Calendar. Schools as well as clinics will surely fill up quickly, please contact the Pro Shop to ensure a spot. In the case of sold out events, we will try to schedule alternative dates.

(Clinic formats vary from week to week) followed by golf promptly at 10:00 a.m.- Formats will vary each week, with fun and camaraderie being the focus. We also have a group interested in lunch after the round at the Highland Arts Center. Please contact the Pro Shop (533-7477 or proshop@mvccvt.com) to ensure your spot prior to every Wednesday.

Our first FREESTYLE FRIDAY went off this past without a hitch (Thanks to the Parrish’s for leading the event!)   Ten golfers took to the links to support the newly designed event, followed by an enthusiastic group of members enjoying a social hour on the porch following the round. The “fun” format-“Mountain View Scramble” will be a can’t miss for the summer of 2018 and beyond. Singles, Couples as well as Foursomes are welcome to this modified scramble and golfer’s of every ability should not shy away from this easy format. Tennis joins in this week as well with an hour Cardio Tennis session, after which you will definitely need refreshments! The golf/tennis rounds begin promptly at 4:00 p.m., and the social hour follows at 5:30p.m.  Come along for this great and casual way to kick off everyone’s Mountain View weekend.

Dear MVCC Members,

The unofficial start of summer has Golf and Tennis on the minds of everyone across the country and certainly more specifically The Mountain View Golf Club. The golf course and tennis courts came through the winter season with very few blemishes – all imperfections have been rectified by Stephen Parker and his team! Green and lush would be an understatement as I look out of the Pro Shop window. Kudos to Stephen and his team!

New and exciting programs are planned to help you make the most out of your summer, while pre-existing programs have been enhanced to help grow participation. Here are some examples of some of our programming for the season:

Freestyle Friday Nights begin-6/15/18

We are looking forward to kicking off most Friday’s throughout the season with some fun Golf and Tennis. The emphasis on “fun” will resonate on Friday evenings throughout the summer season as Golfer’s and Tennis player’s enjoy a unique format that will allow players of “all” skill levels to get involved! Following play, a casual social hour at 5:30pm will add to a weekend of fun (whether you play or not!). Please call the pro shop @ 802-533-7477 and get your name on the list. Do not miss out on what is going prove to be a great new way to kick off your weekends!
