Space for two teams at Hazel Grove on Thursday!!
Maxitours at Classy Caldy
Caldy was in terrific condition for the first Maxitours event of the year! It was great to be back and we were blessed to be at such a wonderful venue.
Thanks to chef John who provided excellent take away fayre throughout the day. He treated me to a lamb dish for my lunch. It was my best meal of the year by far. Amazing.
The wind really picked up in the afternoon. Mick Mahon usually struggles to control his ball but today it was his Covid haircut that was causing problems as it created havoc in the Wirral breeze. By the end of his round Mick looked like a well-fed rat peeping out of a haystack. It was really great to see the lovely man back on the golf course though.
Andy Oakes looked pleased with himself after losing a much required two stones in the lockdown. His playing partners soon brought him down to earth. ‘He’s hitting it even shorter than he used to!’ Commented team Captain Chris Adams. You can’t win Andy.
Paul Woodbine needs a new range finder for Christmas. He told me he hit his three wood 257 yards onto the par five 7th hole. No chance. He still only made a five.
Scoring was excellent of the tough conditions.
Bramalls’ Peter Maher (18) Ewan McCrae(8) Gary Phillips(20)and David Kelly (15) scored a best of the day 45 points on the closing nine holes to take 3rd place on 85.
Alsagers Maxitour legend Colin Roberts (24), Dave Mason(14), Dave Marchant(16) and Nigel Armitage(12) were second out this morning in the calmer conditions and they were quite rightly delighted to score 86 points and took the Clubhouse lead.
Shortly afterwards the score was equalled by Dukinfields Gareth Winston(8), Barry Lees(3), Paul Butler(12) and Darren Burgess(5). Barry and Paul got the team off to a great start with gross birdies at the tough 1st hole. A better back nine saw the likeable quartet take their first win for many a year! Well played chaps.
Thanks to everyone for your support and integrity. It is really great to be back!
