Maxitours at Classy Conwy
A Blustery day saw nearly 100 windswept Maxitours golfers relishing the stunning challenge that is Conwy Golf Club.
The freshly rivetted bunkers looked in excellent condition and the fast running fairways are getting back to their very best. The superb greens were freshly cut and rolled and the holes were changed for our players today. -Brilliant.
New general Manager Matt Parsley is doing a superb job and is well on the way to establishing Conwy as the premier venue in Wales. Thanks to everyone at this lovely Club for your efforts today.
‘That was a proper test of golf-brilliant’ Oozed Dave Blood
‘The pins were tucked away- I think the green keeper had a row with his wife this morning!’ Observed Paul Dalby
‘I got blown away out there, but in a strange way I enjoyed it!’ Reported Barrie Simpson
Jonny Barton never gets a mention in my reports due to his average personality, average looks, average height and very average golf. He gave me a piece of paper to help me with my report after staying up all night thinking how he could get a mention.
‘Climatic day at cool, clearing, Curtis cup venue- Championship Conwy’ Thanks Jonny. You might get another mention in five years time or so.
Graham Jackson is very competitive but he hit some shorter than usual drives today. He was in the bar blaming his poor form on his recent weight loss. ‘How much have you shed?’ I enquired to the portly Heyrose man.
‘About 2 and a half pounds’ He replied proudly munching on a bag of KP peanuts.
Peter Freeman has no idea how to charm the tournament organiser. I haven’t seen him for a couple of years and the first comment he made after looking at me was:
‘I think your website picture needs updating.’
It’s a Shotgun start next week Pete- bring your hiking boots.
Peter Ledgers’ team were going well until they had to rely on him on the 14th hole. He was faced with a delicate chip over a bunker which was marked as GUR. His new nickname is OKE COKE as he went in and out of it three times before turning around and shaking his head all about.
The best scores of the day were from the early starters who missed the afternoon squalls.
Bramall battlers Steve Merricks(4), Les Russon(12), Rob Kenyon (13)and Gavin Spencer(16) were surprised and delighted to take 3rd spot with 79 points.
Wilmslow Jim Caldwell (11) Bryce Brooks (6) Russell Cash (6) and Liam Pilkington(12) all played well to score 82points but they were quieter than you would imagine after picking up just two points on their final hole to narrowly miss out on victory.
Paul Fell(5) has waited 8 months for a win and then he has two on the bounce. I watched Ben Kinsey(5) and Mark Hughes(8) both make birdies on the closing hole to leap frog into the lead. Dave Cooper(16) was their 4th player. Well played chaps – great golf in the breeze!
Thanks to all players for your attendance today.
Yours in Golf, Tim
