Maxitours at Ringway
The final event of 2014 saw nearly 100 players enjoying tropical conditions at Ringway Golf Club.
The greens were really superb which was incredible after so much rain in recent weeks. Many thanks to Club Manager Fiona Cornelius and all her staff for their excellent work today.
Once again nobody let me down and everyone on the start sheet turned up to play which was a great credit to you all considering the dodgy weather forecast. The rain stopped 5 minutes before the shotgun and stayed away throughout the day and then incredibly started again 20 minutes after play finished to give us a great day’s golf!
Play was at a great pace and well over half the field completed their rounds in less than 4 hours today which is terrific – thank you.
Anthony Grimley’s team called a two shot penalty on themselves after teeing off from the wrong markers on the 9th hole, this cost them a top three finish but more importantly the likeable dentist showed his integrity. Tonight he can take out his false teeth and sleep with a clear conscience.
Russell Hollis and his Lymm team looked very happy as they entered the Clubhouse. Regrettably it was spotting the attractive Ringway ladies bridge team enjoying Christmas lunch which raised their spirits, rather than the quality of their golf, as they finished in a lowly 20th position with just 70 points.
Lancastrians Mike Banister(5), Eric Knowles(7), Rob Allen(12) and Chris Davies(10) teamed up well to finish in 3rd spot with 87 points. Davies was the rock of the team and they were delighted to finish on the podium for the second time this season.
Neville Dennis(18) is fast approaching his 77th birthday and a couple of cancer operations earlier this year have not affected his passion for the game. Looking healthier than ever Neville may not hit the ball quite as far as he used to, but the experienced Swintonian knows how to pick a team. Alan Leigh (18) was inspired as they finished second with 90 points. Jimmy O’Reilly(10) and Frank Massey(13) completed the grey haired foursome.
Vertically challenged Mike Spencer(11) is a really lovely man. Mike tried to take his Grandchildren to see Father Christmas last night unfortunately when Santa saw him he immediately told him ‘get back to work’ . He first job was in a butchers shop but the steaks were too high. Today he was inspired and played some terrific golf as his team scored a wonderful 90 points to take first prize. Joe Kirwan(5), Darren Whittaker(13) and Ian King(8) made up the rest of the Bramall team.
Many thanks to all players for your terrific support both today and throughout the year. I have really enjoyed running the events this year and as well as lovely golf courses we have also been blessed with great weather- long may it continue!
Have a great Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year,
Yours in golf, Tim.
