Maxitours at Classy Caldy
Caldy on the Wirral was the stunning venue for today’s Maxitours event. The hospitality throughout the day and presentation of the golf course was first class, many hanks to everyone at this great club.
With very mild air temperatures, plenty of snowdrops scattered around the course and John Stubbs looking for his ball in the young daffodils there was a real feeling that Spring was just around the corner.
Mark Williams had not been to Caldy before and he was impressed by the size of the houses as he drove to the course. ‘I kept thinking this must be the clubhouse every time I turned a corner and saw another mansion!’ said the Mottram man.
It was great to see Premiership referee Mike Dean make another Maxitours appearance today. Most golfers put their scorecard in their back pocket but Mike always uses his top pocket, apparently it is easier for him to pull out the card whenever he feels like it….
In today’s event I have never heard so many worried golfers asking ‘did we come last?’ after they finished their round . Anthony Grimley’s men took that particular honour today with a hard fought 63 points.
Fireman Phil Dermott has played some great golf in recent weeks however today he just missed out on the prizes. Apparently they have had a busy few days in the station after a light bulb went out and it took four of the firemen several hours to sort things out. It took so long because one of them changed the bulb but the other three had to cut the roof off.
Golf will be back in the Olympics after a 108 year absence it has almost been that long since Richard Williamson(11) won a prize. He was delighted to help his team of top guys Dave Goodwin(9), Pete Keena(11) and Paul Woodbine(7) into 4th place with 81 points.
Cheadle Golf Club star Mick Fenton(8) played with his son Tom(8), Tony Stiles(12) and likeable milkman Don Milligan(13). They played really well to finish in 3rd place. Milligan has a ‘crateful’ of shots and really ‘delivered the goods’ when he collected 4 points for the team on the long 5th hole. Unfortunately after a poor tee shot on the 6th he saw his ball ‘floating’ down the river Dee.
Tony Kenny(5), Kenneth Chinn(17), Peter Hampson(11) and Harry Lopez(9) were delighted to finish in a career best 2nd place. Hampson was thestar of the team and two closing pars into the Irish sea breeze secured a high finish.
Steve McDermotts (12)big hitting team enjoyed the longer holes and they all contributed well. Two handicapper Liam Rex(2) played the front nine under par and the charismatic McDermott once again did his fair share of damage. Mark Davin(3) and Simon Priest(6) also played some lovely golf. Despite dropping a shot on a jittery final hole the Ashton men took first prize by a single shot. Well played chaps!
Many thanks for playing today, despite the dodgy forecast all 100 players turned up and were rewarded with a rain free day (except for a small refreshing 20 minute shower!).
Thanks for your support, Yours in Golf, Tim.
