Results from Delamere Forest

As the first Maxitours players munched on their pre round bacon baps there were a few worried faces as thick fog threatened to delay play. Just when all seemed lost, Neville ‘Moses’ Dennis arrived and the fog immediately parted to reveal the stunning Delamere Forest golf course swathed in glorious sunshine.

The greens at Delamere are recognised as perhaps the best in Cheshire and today they were exceptional, many thanks to all the greens staff for their terrific work.

Charles Herbert has recently enjoyed watching ‘I’m a celebrity-get me out of here’ today he nearly had to spend a night in Delamere Forest himself after losing contact with his four ball whilst searching for one of his wayward drives.

Didsburys Steve Dunphy rolled in a lovely birdie putt on the 17th hole for four points and teaming up with Barney Ross they set the early pace in the clubhouse with a terrific 47 points.

With the strong field and superb greens a great score was there to be had and it was Shrigley Halls Steve Rhodes(4) and Carl Kennedy(12) from Chorlton who had the ‘X factor’ as they both played superbly for a 48 point haul and victory in todays event. Kennedy, a regular on Maxitours has struggled for form in the past six months, today he was inspired and his birdie on the stroke index 1 got them off to a great start. Rhodes recorded 5 birdies to do most of the damage. Very well played guys. Joe Kirwan and Mike spencer from Bramall finished 3rd with 46 points.

Maxitours now has a prize for best score for the over 60’s and today I upset a couple of players by incorrectly suggesting they may be eligible for this prize. Glynn Jones said my best method was to count the wrinkles on the older players head to determine age (rather like counting the rings on an old oak tree).

Sixty five year old Ian Ainscough birdied both par threes and his wrinkly friend Alan Clough also played great golf as they rolled back the years scoring 24 points on their inward nine to take the super seniors prize in style.

Many thanks to all players for supporting todays event.
