MAC­CLES­FIELD Golf Club’s men played their first ‘ma­jor’ com­pe­ti­tion of the sea­son for the cov­eted Jamie Don­ald­son Spring Cup.

More than 120 play­ers com­peted in the medal on what can only be de­scribed as an ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic course which was a credit to head green keeper Mark Hil­l­aby and his staff.

To make the day even more spe­cial for­mer Macc ju­nior, Euro­pean Tour and Ry­der Cup star Jamie came along on the day and played in the fi­nal group then stayed on for the pre­sen­ta­tion.

The de­lighted win­ner with a nett 66 was 11 hand­i­cap­per Gareth Robin­son who fin­ished two shots clear of Andy baker, Mark Hod­son and Ray Shel­don.

The best gross score of 76 was posted by Jamie Robin­son, John Poole and Michaell Oakes.

Medal ac­tion at Alder­ley Edge had some good scores with di­vi­sion one topped by cricket leg­end Rick Ford with 65 from Steve Lo­mas 66.

In di­vi­sion two Steve Ben­nett won a cpo on 70 from Mike Eas­ton.

Edge’s ladies were in medal ac­tion with He­len Wil­liams first past the post with 73, one less than Celia Ber­ent and Liz McGuire.

The Nine Hole League has re­sumed ac­tion and last year Alder­ley Edge were joint win­ners with Flix­ton and AVRO and will be look­ing to win out­right in 2016.

Styal’s ever-busy Se­niors were in sin­gles Sta­ble­ford mode and Alan Townsend led in with 39 points from David Ri­ley 38 and Alan Burns 37.

Soc­cer leg­end Rick Wors­ley won a Wed­nes­day Sta­ble­ford at Styal with 39 points see­ing him well clear of Mike Rance 35 and Andy Bur­nett and Jim Slavin, both 34.

The Styal ‘ma­jor’ for the Higham Cup had Daniel Lynch post­ing 43 points to lead in from Mark Ash­ton 42 and Doug Roberts 40.
