THE WGTB Men’s Days Out finished off a great season in spectacular style at a wonderful Haydock Park Golf Club who were magnificent hosts and provided a great and challenging course enjoyed by all.

The ‘Race to Haydock Park’ has been running over five rounds since April with some great venues and excellent weather but Haydock Park surpassed all of these with fantastic weather and a sublime course.

There were plenty of prizes to play for with the top one being for the top qualifiers on the day with two Etiqus watches being the prize.

Qualifiying Winner John Howarth & John Wheeler From Heaton Moor Golf Club with their Etiqus Watches


The old firm of Chris Davies (Whalley) and Mike Jones (Bramhall) set the early pace with a fine team effort seeing them post a hot score of 43 points.

Several pairs came within touching distance but as always a dramatic finale on the 18th green saw Heaton Moor duo John Wheeler and John Howarth win by a short head as they posted 44 points with an ice-cold par from John Wheeler easing them across the line.

The other main prize on offer was the Mike Brennan Aggregate Trophy for the best four total scores over the season.

The consistency of Steve McDermott (Turton) and Terry Dallimore (Ellesmere) took them to a winning score of 164, fopur more than Charles Beadle (Bramhall) and Tony Gregory (Stockport).

WGTB competitions, linked with Manchester Teachers’ Golf Society, have been raising funds for The Golf Foundation with a raffle for an Etiqus watch, provided by Gary Butler and have raised £500 for the charity.
