2018 TOURNAMENT RESULTS

2018 WOMEN’S CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP RE-CAP     Our Women’s Club Championship consisted of two great rivals Jane Woodruff and Sue Howard. The pair ventured out to the links for 36-Holes of Medal play golf in a no holds barred duel, each player knowing the other’s game from years of playing against each other, both holding the utmost respect for each other as well as the game. The weather played a role as soft conditions and rain were the norm over the three day stretch of Championship golf. Mountain View upheld it’s end of the bargain by presenting a great test of their skills. In the end Jane prevailed by posting a 36 Hole Total of 157, and Sue posted a 170. Thank you both for an exciting Championship.

 Congratulations JANE WOODRUFF- MVCC’s 2018 WOMEN’S GOLF CHAMPION

OVER 80 GOLF COMPETITION RECAP   Our Over 80’s Mens Golf Competition was held July 24 – terrific golf followed by lunch by 12 stalwart players!  A lot of fun (and some good natured ribbing) was enjoyed, with Nat Smith winning the round with a score of 38!  Well done Nat!

The first group in the morning posted a score of 41 in a one best ball of the foursome format. A threesome consisting of June Bascom, Michael Hoffman, and Alan Hale were the first group on the golf course – we drew a fourth player {blind draw Kathy Donnelly} out of a hat and it was enough to post the winning score. Each team received golf balls for their efforts donated by Rick……Thank you all for participating!

7/8/18-Mixed Team Championship-Format-Two-Person Scramble- A full field on a sunny Sunday afternoon headed out in a 1:00 p.m. shotgun.
