Maxitours at Delicious Davenport

Davenport is a great test of golf and is also really enjoyable to play. I had numerous comments from players complimenting the course layout and the excellent greens. Many players cited Davenport as their favourite venue. Thanks to all the greens staff for their work. The catering was first class and Frazer Weston must be rated as one of the top stewards in the North. Pro Tony Stevens also does a brilliant job helping to manage this lovely Club.

The course drains exceptionally well as it is built on tin mines and any recent heavy rainfalls had disappeared without trace.

Unlucky Dale Beaghan is a great bloke but you may not of heard of him as he isn’t mentioned too often in the winner’s circle.
He thought his fortunes had changed when he hit one of the best shots of his life on the 3rd hole and was delighted to see that he was easily nearest the pin. Excited Dale took 5 minutes to find a pen and was shaking with joy as he carefully wrote his name on the marker and then proudly put the marker back in the green. As he strutted off the green Andy Jackson in the match behind teed off and hit his ball straight in the hole.

Golf mad Mike Dudley was delighted to become a grandfather two days ago. He was delighted because his daughter was due next week so he wasn’t allowed to go to watch the Open at Troon. Now he has been given a pass. Congratulations Mike.

Sam Leach is struggling to find some form and before play he was debating whether to pull out of the medal at his home club at the weekend. ‘I think I’m going fishing instead if things don’t improve’ said the likeable Lymm man. His fortunes turned around today and an excellent 40 points was good enough to let Sam’s maggotts live for another day.

In today’s event scoring was steady throughout the day and nobody ripped the course to pieces.

Ex Lancashire champion Trevor Foster(scr) showed his class and birdied the last hole to secure 10th place.

Gary Garner(7) and Ray Ward(15) had their best finish for over a year as 42 points was good enough for 7th.

Prestbury members Chris Adams(13) and Steve Hall(18) did their club proud as they recorded 43 points for 5th place and this included a dreaded ‘blob’ on the 11th hole. Ringway’s David Smith(8) and Bill Melia(19) were late starters and they also scored an impressive 43 points.

The first three places scored 44 points and they were all incredibly out in 24 and back in 20 points so it was all decided on a back six hole card play off.

Wychwood Parks Richard Williamson(12) and Dave Goodwin(11) played terrific golf on the front nine. Wealthy builder Williamson started thinking about his speech and collapsed a little on the closing holes failing to score on the easy 13th and picking up just 1 point on the 16th and 18th holes as they came home with 20 points.

Hazel Groves Rick Gajewski(15) and Marples Paul Bray(8) also scored well on the opening holes and Riks birdie on the tough 9th was the highlight of their round.

To say that Knutsford’s talented David Kelly(12) looked slightly disappointed when he was drawn to play with John Atkin(20) first thing this morning when the balls were thrown up would be a slight understatement. After a dodgy first hole David was flabbergasted to witness his partner pick up three points on the 2nd and 3rd holes quickly. This stunning start was followed by a four point birdie on the 5th. John also made superb pars on the 16th and 18th to secure victory by virtue of their better last six holes. Very well played chaps -especially John.

Thanks to all who played today. I am off to watch Germany win another trophy. Yours in golf, Tim
