Maxitours at brilliant Ringway

Maxitours at brilliant Ringway

Ringway proved to be yet another fantastic venue for my Maxitours players today.
The course is always in terrific condition and head green keeper Richie Stevens did me proud once again. It was great that he introduced himself and wished us a good day- Top green keeping!

The first half of the field enjoyed perfect conditions but late in the day the weather gradually deteriorated
‘Zat is a vunderful course!’ Announced Dutchman Koos Alders. ‘ I would love to play it in ze zummer’.

‘I could be a member here!’ Reported Martin Humphries ‘That is a top, top course!’

Thanks also to Tracy who is one of the most forward thinking General managers in the business. She was superb today.

Chris Bracchi is easily persuaded. ‘Whats for lunch?’ He asked the waiter.
‘We have only got freshly cooked pulled pork with apple sauce on delicious baps with chips.’
‘That is too much for me. ‘I’ll do without.’
‘We’ve also got freshly cooked pulled pork with apple sauce on delicious baps without chips?’
‘That sounds nice -I’ll have one.’

In todays event popular Colin Roberts led his Alsager team into 6th place with 81 points . They had a best of the day 45 points on the front nine before the tough back nine took its toll.
Maxitours legend Lewis Marland had his best performance of the season playing alongside Phil Dickens (13) Dave Greenwood (11) and one of six attractive ladies playing today- Sarah Ormrod (14)
They were delighted to finish in 5th place.

New Mills mechanical engineer Tony Jennison (5) took 4th place playing with Nick Moores (12) Andy Hamlett(8) and Richard Blackwell (13)

Sandiways Gary Neiles(6) took 3rd on the card play off teaming up with John Longworth(14) John Morton(12) and Jimmy Ainscough(22)

Narrowly missing out today was Retired headmaster Nigel Ashtons team (13). Ashton is more famous for turning up 2 hours before his Maxitours start time so he can park his beloved BMW somewhere safe rather than his golf game. He was excellent today though and made a vital par on the 17th when his team were wobbling. Colin Bryan (9) Paul Fell (5) and Wigan’s Martin Humphries (12) completed the team.

Winning today despite playing in the worst of the conditions was the Ashton on Mersey team of accountants. Adam Robinson(7),his retired Dad Paul(10) Haydn Parry(4) and Gabriel Bagshaw (2) took first place with 85 points. ‘Have you got any interests or funny stories for my report?’ I asked the pen pushing quartet.

Great golf lads

Well played.

Thanks to everyone for your 100% attendance.
