Maxitours at Worsley
Historic Worsley Golf Course is always a popular venue and over 100 Maxitours players enjoyed this Manchester gem. The course was in superb condition and the excellent weather ensured a great day was enjoyed by all. The greens were carpet -like and there was a very steady string of compliments throughout the day as players finished their round.
‘Please pass on our thanks to the green staff- that was excellent’ said knowledgeable Phil Smeathers.
Colin Roberts was first out and his team were around in just over 3 and a half hours. I told him they must have played well to get round so quickly.
‘We found our balls quicker than usual this week!’ honest team mate Jeff Andrews replied.
England are drawn to play Iceland on Monday night in the last sixteen of the Euros. Burger eating Dave Antrobus is well travelled but he has never been to Iceland. I thought this may be perhaps because Iceland only has 60 golf courses for golf mad Dave to play. It was later pointed out to me that Iceland is the only country in Europe that doesn’t have a McDonalds restaurant .
Ryan Giggs lives in a huge house bordering the wonderful Worsley course. He took a well earned break from a yoga workout this morning and looked out of his bedroom window just in time to watch Jim Kenyon make an impressive birdie three on the tricky 5th.
A few Maxitours players voted in the referendum before arriving at Worsley ‘you may as well look at your belly button to decide whether you are and inny or an outy’ was the conclusion of intelligent businessman Paul Denny.
Paul Sherlock was thinking about voting to stay IN unfortunately his ball was definitely OUT as the likeable Didsbury man hooked one over the trees on the 7th.
In today’s event the conditions were ideal for scoring but this excellent James Braid design got the better of many players. A very respectable score of just 84 points was surprisingly good enough to take the spoils.
Dave Stanhope(10), Giles Terry(15), Phil Smeathers (6)and Dave Antrobus (10)normally feature at the wrong end of the leaderboard. For some reason things have improved in the last couple of weeks and the High Legh/ Knutsford men have found a little bit of team spirit as they finished in an impressive 3rd place.
Wilmslows Jim Caldwell(10) had his best result of the season as he teamed up with Marriots Andrew Aherne(18), Bob Picthal(17)l and Styal’s Simon Maxwell(13). Jim is around the 70 year old mark but is as fit as a fiddle and was in fine form especially on the front nine. Simon is my brother but when I spent my childhood learning to play golf he was busy trainspotting at Crewe station. Despite having a swing quicker than an inter city 125 express he was on the right track today. Well played bro!
Winning today’s event was Castle Hawks Archie Tahir(5) Fizz Ahmed(8) Mo Rafiq(12) and Tal Mahmood(6). The likeable lads have played all season with very little success but today they were delighted and a little surprised to win with just 84 points. ‘We had a great day and absolutely love this golf course’ said team Captain and top man Archie. Well played chaps!
Thanks to all who played today, I hope you had a great day on the links, Tim.
