Maxitours at the accommodating Mere Resort!
Mere Golf resort came to the rescue today after a late cancellation by the Delamere Forest greenkeeper who felt the course was unplayable due to extremely heavy overnight rain and snow.
Eighty players made the short journey down the A556 to The fantastic Mere Resort- playground of the rich and famous. The competitors all enjoyed playing in warm Spring-like conditions incredibly just 24 hours after a blanket of snow covered the North West.
Bob Sutton has really struggled with his game for a couple of years. The last time he played at the Mere his game was so bad his playing partners suggested he could jump in the Lake to drown his sorrows. Bob was about to take his shoes and socks off when he realised it would be a waste of time as he wouldn’t be able to keep his head down for long enough. Today he was delighted with 34th position playing alongside David ‘the digger’ Fellowes.
Valentines Day was extra special this year for close friends John Anderson(8) and Dave Stanhope(11). They enjoyed viewing the lovely snowdrops and crocuses together on the course, this was followed by a romantic drink in the clubhouse after their round to celebrate an impressive 5th position with 43 points.
Frank Massey(11) and Pete O’Neill(3) gained some important order of Merit points as they finished in fourth place just behind the consistent Gary Garner(7) and Mark Green(12) also with 44 points but a better back nine.
Wild hitting Charles Herbert(15) has destroyed his fair share of daffodils over the years however he continued his recent good form with an excellent score of 45 points to take second place playing alongside the likeable Brian Hopkins(6).
Taking first place today with a terrific 46 points was John Bent(4) and Jon Aikenhead(13). Benty was on fire and he incredibly birdied the 6th 7th and 8th holes to score heavily on the front nine. Very well played chaps.
Thanks to everyone for your support after such a late venue change.
