Maxitours at excellent Ringway
The thermometer was showing double digits and the cold wind stopped whistling for once as a great day was enjoyed by all at Ringway Golf Club.
The incredibly well draining course was in excellent condition- thanks to the Head Green keeper and his hard working team for their superb preparation. There were also some great clubhouse improvements taking place under the careful watch of impressive new General Manager Tracy Rawlinson.
The short game practice area was also looking a treat as Ringway just keeps getting better and better.
As well as plenty of daffodils on the course there were other definite signs that Spring is in the air:
Maxitours regular player and Sheep farmer Richard Palmer was missing to oversee the birth of his pedigree lambs.
Chunky Chris Adams was looking excited after cleaning his barbeque at the weekend.
John Hunt was seen getting his lawn mower out of the shed- he needed it today after visiting the deep rough on several occasions.
Roy Ainsworth was hanging around the check-in desk all morning and he told me three times that he is playing at Vale Royal next week and it will be his birthday that day. I think he wants a free game.
I was caught in a rush hour queue this morning near the entrance to Ringway Golf Club when I looked to my right only to see Simon Wilkinson looking suspicious coming out of the local Chemist shop. I’m not sure what he bought but he only just missed out on the prizes.
Each week low handicapper Paul Fells’ team never take enough club and it drives him mad. ‘They were playing in the ‘Leave it Short Masters’ once again today.’ complained the Wrexham man ‘Will they ever learn?’
In today’s event Mick Mahon returned to action after he had a few winners when he went to Cheltenham last week, his luck was out today though as he could only manage 14th place.
Denton’s Dave Blood’s(7) swing was flowing nicely but it was Gary Bennell(12) who
picked up seven shots for the team today. Jim Cox(3) and Tony Walsh(6) all played well to secure 3rd place with 86 points.
Phil Vokes(3), Barney Ross(2), Paul Dalby(3) and police sergeant Rob Anderson(6) took second place also with 86 points. Rob had been on a tense night shift in Warrington town centre all night so any three foot putts were a piece of cake in comparison for the wealthy copper.
Taking first place was the new landlord of the Rose and Crown pub in Knutsford- John Newton(12) and his High Legh team. David Lea(14) and Mike Baker (19) did most of the work and Joe Lauder(5) played great when it counts -towards the end of his round – Well played chaps great win.
Thanks for everyone for your 100% attendance once again- brilliant.
Yours in Golf, Tim
