|Maxitours at Ringway Golf Club.
The warm temperature, glorious sunshine and stunning Autumnal colours at todays event made the 108 Maxitours players feel great to be alive!
Ringway Golf Club is a favourite Maxitours winter venue due to the quality of the greens and the freshness of the bacon sandwiches. Today’s event was the popular Am Am format, this is where it is so easy to lose lifelong friends by picking your ball up before asking the rest of you team ‘I don’t get a shot here, do I?’
Paul Taylor always looks smart on the course but it has been noted that he has only one colour in his wardrobe at home and today he turned up in yet another black outfit. Despite his plain clothing Paul hit some dazzling shots as he led his Hopwood team to a terrific 85 point haul. Mike Sweeney surprisingly pulled his weight as he made a stunning birdie on the tough 17th hole.
Retired PE teacher Pete Holmes made a welcome return to Maxitours after a spell of lucrative supply teaching, today however he couldn’t control his team members as they misbehaved on the greens to record just 77points –could do better Peter!
Barry Harrison has struggled for form all summer, today he played great as the Denton team destroyed the testing course and scored 88 points. Even Dave Collinson was on fire and as I sat twiddling my thumbs in the clubhouse I watched him stroke home a birdie putt on the 18th with more confidence than a Balottelli penalty.
Richard Preston hit a great 7 iron to around three feet on the 16th hole and cheerfully signed the nearest the pin marker, as he passed the green three holes later he noticed his marker had somehow been left off the green. Ken Halton subsequently played his shot to 3 feet and he happily signed the marker. The situation was explained to me and I asked them both how far away they were. It was a fascinating study –in fact it was the exact opposite of two fishermen exaggerating the size of a catch, after a couple of hours both players sportingly agreed to share the spoils.
Andy Stubbens was nearest the pin on the 13th.
Many thanks to Fiona the most helpful Secretary in Cheshire , she is not only attractive but very nice as well. Thanks also to highly respected professional Nick Ryan who always goes the extra mile to make Maxitours feel very welcome.
