Maxitours at Davenport Golf Club

Glorious blue skies once again greeted Maxitours competitors. Davenport Golf Club was today’s sun drenched venue and as the amazing summer weather continues more than one Maxitours player was actually seen applying sun cream before play on this lovely October morning.

The catering at Davenport is superb and the golf course was also in immaculate condition for the time of year, many thanks to Tony Stevens, Elaine and all at this very well run and friendly club.

Nature is a wonderful thing and it is at this time of the year when squirrels instinctively know they must search for acorns and horse chestnuts to stock up for the long winter ahead. Frank Hindle is planning on playing plenty of golf this winter. He was seen disturbing the wildlife as he too foraged in the Davenport undergrowth searching for his balls and stocking up on titleists for the coming barren months.

‘I love that course’ said Ray Jones who remained cheerful despite finishing last. ‘I do find it hard though, it’s so tough it punishes the odd wayward shot and the even ones as well’.

John Stubbs(19) looked like Tom Watson having a bad day when he came off the course after victory slipped through his fingers at the last.’ I’ve taken four to get down from the edge of the green and I’ve also lost my car keys’. Playing partner John Royle(17) looked like an exasperated Phil Mickleson ‘he was a very bad captain’ was all he could mutter after they missed out by a single shot.

Stamford’s Keith Coxon and Ian Trow finished in third spot also with 41 points. There was an excellent finish from Trow who picked up two birdies in the last five tough holes.

Wilmslow’s Jim Caldwell(10) was the Captain of his team and he looked happier than Paul McGinley when he came home in 24 points alongside partner Steve Sutton(10). Billionaire Jim was ‘Donaldsonesque’ over the closing holes and hit the wedge shot of his life to set up a closing birdie at the last to take 2nd place also on 41 points.

Golf crazy Joe Kirwan(5) and Mike Spencer(11) from Bramall scored just one point on their opening hole. They then relaxed and played really solid golf over the next 17 holes to score 42 points and take their first victory of the season with a surprisingly average score. Kirwan’s four point birdie on the 15th hole was the pivotal moment in their round. Great golf, well played chaps.
