The 150th Macclesfield Rugby Club Golf Day

The 150th Macclesfield Rugby Club Golf day was held at the prestigious Royal Davenport Golf Course, Poynton on Friday 21st June. 76 Hopeful golfers turned up with the chance of winning the 2nd greatest prize in golf……..

Last years winners Dr (well he’s actually a Dentist) Burke and his team were there to defend their title along with 18 other teams all with the hope of winning the claret Jug (well a version of)

The weather gods were kind to us but not as kind as the main sponsor of the day Mickey “Le Diamond” Jones & Dids “How far away is he” Jones and the magnificent PR Jones Jewellers.

The day started very well with the bar opening at 10am and several players decided that alcohol was the best was the best way to calm their nerves, the draw was done for the shotgun start and the very unluck Prestbury Physiotherapy Team once again were drawn on the 1st hole for the 8th year running, I do hope their luck changes soon.

Anyway lots of very average golf followed for the next few hours, TBH it’s a bit boring so I’m not mentioning it at all, however the highlight of the day was the chance to win £500 for a hole in 1 on the 14th hole, no-one got close BUT the hole was sponsored by our friends at BACH95 who kept the whole field hydrated alongside our very good friends at BearTown Brewery, Congleton. Fortunately we had Bob Cooke, Tom Jennings (1st Team player) and Peter Fiddler (Ex2nd team Captain) keeping an eye on proceedings, well nearly Jenno drank his body weight in beer and kept falling over, several players refused to play on until that had consumed at least 3 beers and had to be encouraged to continue.

Winners on the Day were the majestical Directors Choice, our very good friend Jonathan Cooper accompanied by ex-players Will Davies, Ross Harper & Don Jonhson (yes the one off Miami Vice), well done chaps.

2nd place was Oli Wilson (a proper golfer) playing with ex 1st team Prop Ian “Bogsey” Roberts, his son Josh Roberts & Jamie Davidson.

Prestbury Physiotherapy just snook in 3rd place after a card play off between 4 teams team Skipper John Griffiths said “we deserved it, we were better than them” his team was 1st Team player Harry Oliver, Ex-Prop Rob Oliver and Alex Parkes.

Lots of other prizes won by Tony King, Dale Crosbie, Rob Oliver (again – obs plays too much golf) Tattoo & Harry Oliver.

Special mention to Rhys Davies, our First Team Head Coach who won the “strongest” team as they held up all the others, it’s a golf joke 😊

Huge Thanks to all the partners of the event, without which it wouldn’t take place:

PR Jones Jewellers, Prestbury Physiotherapy, Williams BMW, Ye Old Admiral Rodney, Spiral Print, Marchington Stone, Jims Jerseys, AVK, Money Guru, Eaton & Burke Dentists, Ainsworth jewellers, BACH 95, Wackysox, Directors Choice, William Martin & Partners, Prestbury Golf Club, Wilmslow Golf Club, Davenport Golf Club, Rick Sheilds Golf, Shrigley Hall GC, Macclesfield GC and BearTown Brewery.
