Welcome Back to Mountain View!

Welcome back to Mountain View! With daytime temperatures in the 50s and low 60s (but slowly getting warmer!), we opened for play on Saturday, May 11, with all of the Club’s nine holes and four of its seven clay tennis courts ready for action. Course Superintendent Steve Parker and his greens keeping team have been hard at work and, despite the long winter, MVCC’s tees, fairways and greens weathered the long winter with a minimum of ice damage.
Our first social event of the season, our annual Spring Fling Happy Hour, will take place this Sunday, May 26, from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. BYOB and an appetizer to share—we will provide ice, lemons/limes, club soda and tonic water. Greet old friends, make new ones and get ready for a spectacular 2019 season!
On Tuesday evenings after 4 pm, the Club once again is hosting organized league play for all comers, followed by an informal pot luck cookout. Thursday morning Men’s Day Scramble remains very popular and is a perfect format for both experienced golfers and those who are seeing to tune up their game in a relaxed social format.
On June 27-30, MVCC will be hosting the inaugural “Mountain View Open” doubles tournament with Men’s, Women’s and Mixed Doubles Events.
PGA golf professional Jim Dayton, who spent the 2016 and 2017 seasons with us, has graciously agreed to help us open the Pro Shop and provide golf instruction while we search for a permanent replacement.  We welcome Jim back, even if only for a brief time.
If you have questions regarding course or court conditions, please don’t hesitate to give the Pro Shop a call (802-533-7477) during regular business hours, which during May will be 9:30 am to 4:30 pm.  Please also visit MVCC’s website (www.mvccvt.com).
Rick Ely
Club President
