Divots FEBRUARY 2020 From the Pro Shop
We are off to a great 2020! It was a banner year in 2019 for The Views and we want to thank you all our members, residents and guest for your support. We look forward to serving you all through 2020 and provide the professional friendly service, excellent conditions and a memorable golfing experience you have come to expect. After a long run we are changing the monthly newsletter. The new name moving forward will be called Tee to Green. We are proud of the day to day conditions and want the newsletter name to reflect that. We hope you will enjoy the new newsletter and look forward to communicating to you all the happenings here at The Views Golf Club. Speaking of new, the Pro Shop now carries Medterra Brand CBD. Many PGA golfers such as Bubba Watson and Charley Hoffman use CBD to help them focus and have energy all through their rounds. For more info check with the staff in the pro shop. Great shots @ The Views Congratulations to Ted Sorich on not only shooting his age but beating his age by 5 shots! Ted shot an eighteen-hole total of 6 over par 78! You can do the math to find his age! You inspire us, Ted! Our twelfth hole is arguably our hardest par 3. Tim Kelley may no longer think so. Tim aced number 12 from 166 yards with a 3 wood. Rumor has it the shot was hit directly into a 40-mph wind. Either way it was a great shot and one that Tim will always remember. Way to go Tim!
Talking about making an ACE. Robert Taylor holed out a Pitching Wedge on hole #3 from 125 on January 31. Results On January 11-12 the Views Golf Club hosted the Oro Valley Senior Championship.
