Maxitours at excellent Ringway
Ringway was superb today. As I put the nearest the pin markers out first thing this morning Matt the highly regarded new head greenkeeper was working hard changing the pins and preparing the course. There were only positive comments throughout the day as players praised the greens, fairways and the half way house barbeque.
Ringway is back to as good as it has ever been.
Thanks also to Manager Tracy and her first-class team for their faultless hospitality and professionalism.
The day started well with Rick Shaw tickling the ivories on the grand piano in the newly refurbished club house. He was very entertaining and has wonderful rhythm, talent and real magic in those fingers. Unfortunately, a different bloke teed off on the first tee as he tugged the ball into the deep Ringway rough.
Tony Leighs team mates thought he had got his sports mixed up when he arrived wearing a white pair of pants, a white top and a white sweater. He assured them that this was his latest trendy golf outfit. The list of banned Maxitours golf items (which includes castle tees, iron headcovers and chipmaster wedges) has just added a new category -men over sixty wearing white pants.
In todays event Jim Caldwell and his team of John Sherington, Peter Griggs and Simon Woolley was third out in the morning sunshine and they set the pace with an excellent 87 points.
Retired Copper Neale Laurent came close with an 85 point haul.
Jeremy Waterhouse and his team also played well today. He loves visiting Ringway as there are pictures of his grandfather dotted around the clubhouse. He played off scratch for 25 years and there is even a picture of him with the great South African Open winner Bobby Locke playing in a Ringway exhibition match. Hole 14 is actually called ‘Waterhouse’ in a tribute to the great man. Unfortunately, Jeremy nearly lost his ball on the family hole but team mate Graham Robinson picked up three points as the team moved into a best of the season 4th position.
It was Mick Mahon(21), Richard Palmer(9), Andy Faulkner(14) and John Farnsworth(20) who recorded 87 points and won the back nine card play off by the narrowest of margins. Mahon receives two shots on the two toughest Ringway holes and he knocked in solid putts to secure 8 points for his team.
Well played chaps very popular winners indeed.
Thanks for your 100% attendance today.
