Maxitours at remarkable Ringway
It was a gloomy day in Manchester however the condition of superb Ringway golf course lifted everyone’s spirits. The terrific layout is always a real pleasure to play and there were plenty of positive comments from Maxitours players as they finished their rounds.
Thanks to all the staff at this superb Club for your hospitality. Secretary Fiona Cornelius is great to work and with her new haircut she is now ranked in the top three most attractive Club secretaries in the North West.
Seventy year old Roy Ainsworth checked in with new partner Keith Edwards. ‘He’s a ringer!’ Roy announced. ‘Is he very handy off his handicap?’ I enquired ‘No, he can’t hit a barn door with a banjo. He’s ‘s just been ringing out his socks in the car park- he played in the rain last night.’
Frank Hindle could be getting the Joe Hart feeling in the next couple of weeks. He thinks his place in his fourball is totally secure. Team manager Mick Mahon has other ideas and after today’s performance he is desperately looking for a decent new partner. Frank could soon be out on a free transfer.
Bernard Hessian’s team finished in last place but they were unfazed by their poor performance and even asked for a tee time at Vale Royal in a few weeks time. I informed them that I only had 3pm available and that there is a good chance they will be playing in the dark. After a quick chat with his team Bernard came back to the table and asked ‘Have you got anything later ?We might give that playing in the dark a try- we might do better. ‘
The early starters had the best of the weather before a heavy hour-long downpour toughened up the course.
Colin Roberts is a top man and he was out first. It was great to see him back playing some excellent golf as he helped his Alsager team to an impressive 82points. That score was matched by the lovely Spencer family from Bramall and also premiership Referee Mike Dean’s team from Aldersley Green.
Jim Caldwell’s Wilmslow team finished in 4th with 83 points and were narrowly beaten into 3rd by Sale’s Simon Poucher(15), Brendan Leighton(16), Vic Nillson(13) and Jan Jagielka(14).
Iain Bartholomew’s(4) team could only manage three points on the easy first hole however with the very positive Richard Blackwell(13) in the team anything is possible. An excellent back nine saw them record 85 points and take 2nd place. John Hilditch(11) and Tony Jennison(5) completed the quartet.
Roy Ainsworth(26) from Lymm is having a hip operation in mid September and is trying to get in as much golf as possible before a six month lay-off. He signed off in style as his senior Lymm team gelled tremendously to secure a memorable win with 86 points. Brian Ankers(16), Mike Verdon(15) and Keith Edwards(19) were the other team members -well played chaps!
Thanks to everyone for your terrific support today, yours in golf, Tim
