Maxitours at delightful Davyhulme
Davyhulme is a brilliant members club. The course is a very easy walk, the greens are superb thanks to their experienced Nick Marner and the hospitality in the Clubhouse is second to none.
I had well over a dozen players telling me to book again for next year- Thanks Davyhulme!!
Harry Turner is struggling with the new Handicap system.
‘Do you know what Tim. My handicap changes everywhere I go!’
I couldn’t be bothered to even start to try and explain.
Stuart Hibbert from Alsager brings his Abacus to most events to speed up the check in process. It is always a close battle between Stuart and Bob Sutton as to who gets the most shots with the new handicap system. They are having a terrific tussle to become the worst Maxitours player ever. Stuart is the strong favourite. I saw Bob hit a couple of crackers today.
In todays event Jim Caldwell’s Wilmslow team were 3rd out and took the early lead with 88 points. Student James Cash (scr) Lancastrian Peter Griggs(12) and Mere’s artificial turf expert Martin Longshaw(22) completed the talented team. I thought scoring would be high due to the excellent conditions but this score led the way throughout the day.
Four teams challenged with 86 points. Paul Wrigleys team finished 5th losing the card play off, and millionaire Jim Clarkes team took 4th.
The team of Simon Raine(4), Pete Dobson(10), Mark Millhouse(+1) and David Thornhill(4) finished 3rd. Dobson is famous for having a fifteen year old son who is miles better than him at golf but he played well himself for a change today.
Ex School headteacher Nigel Ashton(11) is a lovely bloke. He helped his team to a homeward 45 points which was good enough to take 2nd place. Mike Lowe(8) Colin Bryant(8) and Steve Parry(8) all did as they were told and chipped in nicely.
At the end of the day Jim Caldwells team held on for a cherished win. Very well played chaps!
Thanks to everyone for playing today. Great golf course , weather and friends. If you didn’t have a top day today you never will. Thanks for your support, Tim.
