Monthly luncheon hours:

Fall/Winter (October 1st – March 31st) lunch at 12:15 with doors opening at 11:30 

Luncheon meetings are held on the second Monday of the month.  The deadline for getting luncheon checks to the Treasurer is the Monday preceding the luncheon by 2:00 p.m.  (No late checks will be accepted.)     Make checks (no cash) payable to “Mountain View Ladies Putters.”   The Black Box is now located in hallway behind the Rincon Room (old golf shop).  If you need to cancel, there is no refund, but someone may fill that spot and reimburse the person she replaces.  If you plan to be out of town, deposit your check in the Black Box in advance.  Luncheon attendance is very important.  This is when reports are given, announcements are made, new members are introduced, ideas are exchanged, voting takes place, and monthly traveling trophies are awarded.


The MVLP’s meet Monday mornings on the patio behind the golf shop (formerly the Mesquite Grill) for our announcements and then putt on the large green nearest the building.  From April 1st to September 30th, announcements begin at 8:30 a.m. From October 1st to March 31st, announcements begin at 9:30 a.m. with putting beginning immediately after.  MVLP accepts all SaddleBrooke residents whether you are a non-golfer, novice or golfer.

If our regularly scheduled putting is to be cancelled, you will be notified via our News Blast email or on our website under Putting Status.  This status will be posted an hour prior to starting time.

There is no putting in the spring (late May-early June) or fall (late September or early October) while the course is closed for aeration and over seeding.  Regular monthly luncheons continue as scheduled during these closure periods.

Putting green dress codes:  No denim of any color, shorts and skirts must reach mid-thigh and no gym clothes. Sleeveless shirts are OK with or without a collar but the majority of the shoulder must be covered.

The dress code for events during the Spring/Summer season is our pink MVLP shirts and white pants; Fall/Winter season is our pink MVLP shirts and black pants.

Sunshine Committee Update:  Please let us know when any of our members need a little cheering up or support due to being ill or surgery as we will send a card to that putter   If there is a death of a putter or their spouse, we will send flowers or a check to the charity of their choice.  You can contact our president who will pass this information on to the Sunshine committee.

Reminders

Parking:  Please be considerate.   Golf carts PLEASE park in the golf cart parking lot.   If it is full, PLEASE double up and use the golf cart lines in the car lot and take one parking space for two carts. Golf carts in the cart lot can double park if you leave the key in the cart so the cart hemmed in can move your cart and get out.

Score Cards:  Please remember to put last names of everyone putting in your group on the score card.  We have many Judys and Sandys etc.  This is especially important when we have a new member or guest in the group.  Anyone who is a guest should be noted.  Also, please remember to check the total of your score, total and circle the number of holes in one, and initial the score card.

Name Tags:  Many are again forgetting their name tags.  PLEASE try to remember to wear it!
