Maxitours at superb Conwy
Picture postcard conditions greeted the Maxitours players at Conwy today. The Conwy course was described as ‘the best its ever been’ by helpful assistant pro Andy Blake. The fairways and greens and surrounds were immaculate –it really was in superb condition.
Tubby Dave Antrobus is a salad dodger and he turned up 3 hours early for his start time, he really enjoys the famous Conwy Golf Club breakfast and was terrified in case the chef ran out of bacon.
Dave Henshall was running a little late for his start time ‘Is that clock right?’ he asked his partners ‘No, its up the wall’ replied the quick witted Alan Noden.
Unlucky Paul Hodgson is a lovely chap and is employed as a caring social worker. Today he sat down wearing his newly pressed Galvin Green golf pants ready to enjoy his full English Breakfast ‘I’m looking forward to this today- you wouldn’t believe the week I’ve had’ he remarked chewing on a sausage. Just as he tucked in to his black pudding the plate slipped off the table and a portion of beans fell on his lap.
The likeable Dave Henshall from Didsbury has worked hard on his swing this winter as he was desperate to find some consistency in his game. In his second Maxitours outing of the season he was delighted to record a second consecutive and very consistent last place finish.
Performing well in todays event was the colourful pairing of Alistair Brown and Barry Green from Mere who finished in 4th position with a solid 42 points.
Ted Biddlecombe teamed up with Al Collins and they were delighted with 43 points and 3rd place around the championship links ‘I think that is the best course I have ever played’ said the well-travelled Collins.
Kevin Chisnell and Mo Dah from Mere also scored 43 points to finish 2nd and they incredibly had the same back nine, back six and back three as Collins, only a classy three point haul on the 18th hole separated the two massively talented pairs.
Todays winners were Paul Wrigley and Paul Armstrong from North Manchester , Armstrong watched by a rowdy group of clubmates on the balcony coolly rolled in a high pressure birdie putt at the last to win by just one shot.
Ex professional boxer John Aikenhead has a squashed nose and the Didsbury man hit a snorter on the 15th hole to take nearest the pin in some style.
Many thanks for everybody for playing today, and many thanks to Conwy and its friendly staff for their terrific hospitality
