News From the Pro Shop


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.
