 Mac handy in storm conditions Maiden win for Coastguard The Shipping Forecast for last Sunday at Ramsey Golf Club - there will be severe gales lasting all day making golf just about impossible. Perhaps very fitting conditions then for the Mezeron Limited sponsored RNLI Silver Spoons stableford. There were quite a few players thinking of putting up the distress flares to be rescued from the course on Sunday with at least one player having to retrieve a golf cart and clubs from the pond on the seventeenth! Hardy sea faring folk were required to make a success of the weather in this competition. Surprisingly some managed to make a go of it and stayed the course. Robbie Moore and Claudio Mazzone carded a creditable 34 points with Claudio just taking fourth on countback. John Ball posted a back nine of 19 points. A birdie three on the tricky 15th served him well but two dropped shots on the 16th meant his 35 points got him third place, losing out on a countback from the ever-steady Dave Heesom. Dave played the final holes very well with birdie on the 15th and excellent pars on the 17th and 18th to take second place. Out in front and a clear winner was fittingly, Michael ‘Mac’ MacDonald with a superb 39 points. He sailed out in 20 points and blew all the way in with 19 points and a pleasing par on the last to round off an excellent day. At the presentation Mac was thrilled with his first solo win, especially given the gale force wind conditions, he just didn’t want it mentioned that a Coastguard had won the RNLI. Jill Power and Jan Sentence were among the equally hardy ladies who stuck it out to the end. They ended up tied with Jill just edging the day on countback to take the Ladies prize. The Colin Aldridge Memorial Trophy is always a keenly contested competition in memory of a fun loving member of the Club. In drizzly conditions Tony White headed a group of Malcolm Callow, Robbie Radcliffe, Steve Mitchell, John Rotheroe and Micky Choo all on 36 points. Brian Reid sneaked ahead of them with 37 after a birdie on the fourth. Jason Orr’s par finish on 17 and 18 gave him fifth place after a good lap on 37. Paul Morris matched him all the way and an early birdie on the third was enough to take fourth place on 37 points after a countback and an impressive finish. Steve Barbour was in top form on the back nine with birdies on 13 and a nice two on the 17th finishing with 38 points and a pleasing third spot. The top two places were way ahead of the field and what a closely fought battle that turned out to be and it is with some embarrassment that one of them was your correspondent. Richard Power and Gareth Hooson-Owen were neck and neck all the way to the finish. Richard took an early advantage with a putt from the edge of the green for birdie on the second but lost the advantage with successive double bogeys on the sixth and seventh. Gareth was scoring steadily until the seventh when three successive dropped shots took away the one shot lead he had at the turn. The back nine saw steady golf from Richard Power. A dropped shot on the 11th was recovered with a birdie on the 13th. A back nine of 35 shots gave 44 points and lead in the clubhouse. Gareth Hooson-Owen fought all the way but dropped shots on the 13th and 14th left him needing some magic on the finishing holes and despite a two on the last his back nine of 37 was tantalizingly just short and he lost it on countback after an excellent round. Pleasing golf from both players who are now rewarded with challenging new handicaps! Midweek saw two Cub days worthy of mention, not least for the good weather they enjoyed. Andrew Hudgeon was rewarded after some considerable post lock-down practice with 39 points and first place from David Dean on a countback. Stu Douglas was in third place just ahead of David Kinrade both on 38 points. Last Wednesday David Kinrade again took fourth place with 38 points just behind Darren Ideson, however Tony Kelly was one ahead on 39 and in second place. Martyn Callister was the winner on the day with an excellent 40 points. Ramsey Golf Week starts this Saturday with the Chrystal’s Auctions 4BBB. The Junior and Senior Town Cups are on Sunday as curtain raisers to Monday’s Men’s Town Cup and the Ladies’ on Tuesday. Ring the Club on 812244 to book a tee, enjoy this excellent course and the excellent view from the patio.
