2018 MVCC MEN’S CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP- 8/4-8/5

The 2018 Men’s Club Championship field took to the Mountain View links with a never die attitude and maintained that spirit for the entire weekend. The weather also held true to form with a never die attitude to the tune of heat indexes well into the 90’s. I can tell you that Spirit and Sportsmanship prevailed!

Our format was 36 Holes of Medal Play, the absolute true test of a golfer’s grit. In the end Kyle Wright two-time defending “Champion” accomplished a three peat, not an easy chore for anyone whom has played in one of these true tests of golf. The 18 year old played with grace and maturity beyond his years.

Congratulations! Kyle Wright, this year’s 2018 Men’s Club Champion.

Synopsis

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

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.

The results are as follows: ***Please note… out “Tied” score policy-All ties are broken by utilizing #1 Handicap hole backwards***

3rd Place Winner’s with a 36-Sean and Stephanie Thompson won a match of cards.
