*GOLF FEATS*

Mr. Jim Hunt made an “Eagle Two” as he chipped on the second hole during a recent Men’s Day, great job Jim!

*VOLUNTEER GREENSKEEPERS*

Volunteers from our membership gathered this past week to aid in some upkeep our golf facility. Tool sheds were emptied as the group gathered in 90 degree temperatures and managed to clear out some brush between the 1st and 9th holes, as well as between the 9th green and 8th tee box.  A job well done will be noticed as you play these two holes.  A small luncheon was enjoyed by all following the good deed.

Thank You to the following Volunteers:

*TOURNAMENT RE-CAP

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

***The Mountain View spirit is alive and well as witnessed by this PGA golf professional!  Player’s who had shot themselves out of contention on day one showed up on day two and put a peg in the ground!  Spirit dictated once again in the end!***

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
