Maxitours at delightful Davenport
Another stunning Summers day greeted well over 100 Maxitours competitors at Davenport Golf Club. This picturesque course is a firm favourite and always attracts a large field who enjoy the stunning views, excellent greens and well presented fairways.
The Clubhouse and facilities are superb and Fraser the bar manager is the best in the business.
‘This is my favourite course!’ Said well-travelled Steve Parle ‘It isn’t easy but it rewards good golf shots ‘
Thanks to everyone at this Club for making us feel so welcome. My Dad used to teach Davenport Captain Mick Murphy (he claims my Dad gave him a clip around the era) and it was great to have a chat with the class Club skipper who wished us well today. Thank you.
Dave Antrobus went into panic mode this morning after he was stuck in traffic. He was in no danger of missing his tee time, he was just terrified that he wouldn’t have time to eat all his full English breakfast. He made several calls to playing partners, catering staff and a variety of golf professionals so that his food would be ready for him on arrival.
I don’t think Mike Lowe got any birthday cards when he was a boy. He always has a good root through the pile and looks at everybody’s scorecards when he finishes his round.
‘I love looking at cards’ he told me today.
In today’s event Brian Greenbank played great golf but talked me hole by hole through his level par round. I am getting better at feigning interest so I am getting a little afraid that he might bring his holiday photos to show me next week. Unfortunately, the rest of his Hale team were less than average so they just missed out on the prizes with 81 points.
French Bistro owner Olivier Troalens team finished with an incredible eight points on their final hole to help the Lymm men sneak into 6th place.
Carden Park’s Colin Bryan(9), Paul Fell(5), Mike Lowe(9) and Nigel Ashton(12) finished in 4th place with 83 points and
Ashton in Makerfields Neil Edwards(7), Matty Holland(14), Jimmy Shirley(13) and Jeff Ratcliffe(7) took 3rd with 84 points. They had a best of the day 44 points on the tough front nine.
Dukinfields well-liked Neale Laurent(13), Jack Schofield(10), Paul McDermott(15) and Mark Turner(11) finished strongly to take 2nd on the card play off also with an excellent 84 points.
Taking 1st prize was the Jim Caldwells(11) Wilmslow senior team of Bob Picthall(14), Jon Hume(14) and Alderley Edge legend Stuart Hall(16). It was a great team effort but Jons 4 point birdie on the 17th hole was crucial to their success. Very well played chaps!
Thanks to everyone for your support and 100% attendance today – terrific.
Yours in Golf, Tim
