Maxitours at Classy Caldy

The large Frodsham windfarm turbines were struggling to turn this morning as clear blue, breathless skies greeted our Maxitours players on their way to the Wirral masterpiece that is Caldy.

Caldy was recently announced as the wealthiest location in Merseyside. (although to be fair there wasn’t too much competition.) The area is stunningly beautiful and the golf course is one of the finest Cheshire has to offer. Everyone enjoyed themselves and there were plenty of compliments for highly rated green keeper Carl Crocher.

The food is also world class and the bacon rarebit is highly recommended.

Richard Payne knows how to dampen a teams’ spirit as I heard him give a motivational talk in the clubhouse before he went out to play. ‘I have to warn you guys- I am playing rubbish at the moment.’

Ed Pysden is a top lawyer and a great bloke who I have known for a long time. He still likes to blame his bad golf on the fact that I gave him his first few lessons when he started playing golf over twenty years ago. Thanks Edward.

Colin Lynch has got more Ferrari’s than Ian Poulter and he also has a greater variety of shots than the Ryder cup man he just doesn’t know when he is going to play them. Unfortunately, he hasn’t quite got the same winning mentality as Poulter on the golf course but he did finish in a very respectable tenth place.

Mike Wainwright had a bad start to his day. He cut his new Mizuno leather golf belt to size last night after a few drinks but was a bit too optimistic and took too much off so it wouldn’t fit around his waist this morning. He was also cutting off a bit too much on the Caldy doglegs today and could be seen trying to hold his pants up as he headed towards the bushes searching for his wayward ball.

Caldy Club member Paul Lea tried and failed to use his local knowledge today – he came in on the card three times. ‘The problem is I know where all the trouble is.’ Claimed the wealthy wealthy estate agent as his team finished second last.

Despite the perfect conditions scoring was tough and with soft fairways it was a day for big hitters.

Third place went to Lymm’s Rich Beem lookalike Roger Percival(5), Martin France(3), Pete Atherton (10) and Phil ‘birdie’ Byrne (17). After a strong front nine of 45 points this likeable quartet stalled a little on the tougher back nine before picking up six points on the last.
Second place went to North Manchesters’ Jon Farrell(9), Paul Wrigley(4), Aiden Hoosen (+1)and Mick Philbin(15). Full figured Wrigley was on the card 14 times as he enjoyed his day in the sun.

Taking first place was ‘three time England senior champion’ Alan Squires (scr) from Saddleworth and his less talented team of Andy Dunster(9), Alan Entwistle(6) and Nick Curran(13) Squires is a class act and his approach shot into the last was so straight he had to move to one side so he could see the flag stick. Well played chaps – great first victory at a lovely course!
