Macclesfield Rugby Club Annual Golf Day – Sponsored by RRG Toyota

On Friday 19th July 68 golfers played for the prestigious MRUFC Golf Trophy, previous winners have gone on to glory on the professional circuit. There was a mix of players, ex-players, sponsors, dignitaries, accountants, physiotherapists, Matt Harding & 3 generations of Oliver’s.

The weather was not kind for the initial few holes with heavy rain. In fact, the RNLI was called by Apps on the 4th hole as Will Davies fell into a bunker and was struggling with the tide. Fortunately, he made it out with too much damage. Lots of comments like “Skin is waterproof” “it’s only a shower” “it’ll pass soon”, Jesus I hate golf” and “why the hell are we here ?” etc. etc.

Luckily, there was a refuge available on the 11th hole, Mrs & Mrs Oliver’s mobile bar (Sponsored by Mike Menzies and the Clubs brewery) where people could have a few beers and a gin & tonic alongside a cookie or two under shelter. It was like watching Den & Angie from EastEnders back in the day.

The was some excellent golf played, mostly by the recently retired Peter McNulty & Tony King who have nothing to do all day but play golf and then there was Matt Harding with had to call in technical assistance (like the RAC) mid-round as he had run out of balls!

Anyway, lots of fun was had, Crossy (the first team prop) hitting a ball out of a bunker with water up to his ankles (it was a dreadful shot that was pointless, – like his Golf)

There were no losers on the day. Golf was the winner and laughed at others misfortunes!

As with any event like this, the cream rises to the top and the deserved winners were:

  • Tim Kerr (Ex-first team player)
  • Andy Vass (Ex 2nd team player)
  • Jonathan Coops (Ex 3rd team player)
  • Ross Harper (Ex Vets player)
  • 2nd place – Rob Oliver’s team (we was robbed)
  • 3rd place – Bollington Insurance (they always finish 3rd every year)
  • “Special Prize” went to team “Tightly fitting clothes”
  • Will Davies – Colt
  • Harry Oliver – Colt
  • Gus Fiennes – Colt
  • Apps – Not a Colt (who turned up with a right-handed putter ??? – BTW he is a left-handed golfer ??)

Huge thanks to The Tytherington Club for hosting and the support of all the players and sponsors.

The day works because of peoples generosity and desire to support the club both on and off the pitch. It would be good to see a few more players down making a fool of themselves.

The event has raised approx. £4,750 which will be used to update the changing room facilities for everyone.
