The “Hunters Gin” Macclesfield Rugby Club Golf Day

On Friday the 8th May, 42 Golfers set out on Friday to attack the excellent Davenport Golf course, unfortunately only 36 finished on the 18th green ! This was due to buggies running out of power (honest Matt Harding & John Griffiths!!) and Dom McCarthy & Nick Smith nipping over to Bowden RUFC to collect their 3rd team League Cup .

The day was won by Ollie Wilson & Ian “Bogsey” Roberts team scoring a magnificent 89 points, lets not mention they played with Jamie Donaldson’s old caddy !! Not much help there then!! 2nd place was Andrew Massey’s team (U14 parent) and 3rd place was Kevin Wrights “Irish Wolfhounds” (he was the only Irishman in the team ??)


Some very generous sponsors meant that there was a sprinkling of prizes all over the place along with some free beer served by Jim Welch (Not in his red Virgin Atlantic uniform / Red High heels)

Longest Drive was won by Ollie England (boring !!!!)
Nearest the Pin – Jeff Turner (U14 Parent)
Nearest the pin in 2 – “The Silver fox” – Mike Hall
Smallest player – Dids Jones (retained his title)
Shortest shot – Matt Harding (2 inches on the 14th !!)
Most ridiculous shot – Peter McNulty (U14 Coach) (hit the clubhouse from 100 yards)
Happiest player – Tony King (is he ever at work ?)
Most Drunk player– Jim Welch / Wilkey / Annette Oliver / Matt Harding / Ollie Wilson

As you can tell the day was played in great spirit and although at a Golf Club the rugby spirit shone through.

Massive thanks to the sponsors who made the day possible along with Fraser at Davenport Golf Club who made us very welcome (go and play the course it was excellent)

The event was such a success we have booked it again next year – Friday 13th May 2016 (The week after the beer festival)
