Maxitours at awesome Ormskirk
Ormskirk is the newest venue on the Maxitours rota and looks set to be a firm favourite. Everyone at this great Club was extremely friendly. Deputy stewardess Sarah and her team were really terrific this morning and old pro Jack Hammond is a great character who is very well liked in the golfing world. Many thanks guys.
The picturesque Golf Course is in the middle of nowhere and a few of our players arrived with muddy cars after various Sat Navs took them down a nearby pot holed single track road. I think Henry Clarke’s golf GPS watch was also playing up as his golf ball was trying to make it’s way down the same single track road after his vicious hook off the 1st tee.
Kev Hart is a top lad but his knowledge of the game leaves a little to be desired. He surveyed the golf course from the Clubhouse window and asked ‘Are these McDougall greens?’
I was busy checking players in before play and asked him ‘What the heck are you talking about now?’
His more intelligent pal Ian Fensom explained that Kev is easily confused with the Scottish surnames Mackenzie and McDougall.
John Farnsworth has played in every event for the past few months and he even came to Portugal with me in January. I actually see more of him than I do my own wife. He was absent today however as he had gone away with his own Mrs on the trip of a lifetime to Sweden to see the Northern lights. He is back home tomorrow but apparently his lovely wife is devastated as there is no sign of any lights. His golf mates told me that he John isn’t too bothered as has been avidly watching the attractive Scandinavian girls instead.
It was enjoyable to watch my players hitting approach shots into the 18th green through the big Clubhouse window and I saw some lovely golf. I don’t know if it was the high quality turf on the fairways but there seemed to be fewer bad shots than usual. Even John Hilditch hit a decent pitch shot into the green. Jim Cox’s approach had a little hint of back spin- nice!
In the pairs event I think young Will Cockayne(7) had been on the drugs as he finished in 49th place alongside Tom Ashmore(7).
The back nine was scoring much easier than the front and a strong finish saw Birchwood’s Alan Simpson(13) and Alan Drew (6) take 5th place with 41 points. On form Tony Stiles(13) and Mick Fenton(6) were even better and they took 4th with 23 points on the back nine.
Retired Koos Alders(14) and Martin Cox (25)worked hard to take 3rd place with 43 points.
Lovely man and Cambridge Zoology graduate Mick Mahon(25) has been playing like a chimp for the last few weeks. He found his rhythm today and teaming up with the enigmatic Richard Palmer(11) they were delighted to score 43 points to finish in 2nd place after winning the card play off .
Leigh golf club’s John Wallis(18) is on fire at the moment. His team won their local domino league on Tuesday and if that wasn’t enough he took first place in today’s Maxitours event. He was knocking the spots off his golf ball on his way to 44 points. The retired air conditioning engineer enjoyed the breezy conditions to earn his first ever Maxitours victory. Joiner Dave Tongue(10) chipped in when he could.
Well played chaps great golf. Thanks to everyone for your terrific support. Only eight weeks until the Masters begins!
