Room for 1 team at Lancashires finest -Pleasington next Wednesday!
Wonderful Romiley results
A sunny and sometimes showery Spring day greeted the full field of Maxitours competitors at Romiley.
This golf course is becoming a firm Maxitours favourite – we had a good field last year but word has spread about what a terrific venue Romiley is. The Club is incredibly friendly- both The President and committee members made the journey to the Club to welcome us all today.
The greens were hand cut and ironed and they are possibly now the best in the area. The Romiley layout is superb and this golf Club is rapidly becoming recognised as one of the finest in Manchester.
‘That is a great golf course. There is no doubt about it.’ Praised Colin Roberts.
‘That is in superb condition!’ Reported Peter Francis.
Head pro Graham Drabble has a terrific shop- I used to coach him when he was a young lad and he is now a model Club pro. He was fully booked with lessons today reflecting his growing reputation as a top coach.
Fifty-nine is the holy grail of golf scores. Only Ollie Fisher has broken 60 in the history of the European tour. Mike Kirchins’ Hale team scored 59 today.
‘Have you ever relegated a team?’ Chuckled Brian Fleetwood.
Not yet Brian.
Nigel Uttley and his team are still in shock after their first win three weeks ago. Normal service was resumed today with their mediocre 74 point hall.
Once again scoring was average and three teams will be very surprised to share second place with just 80 points. Maxitours legend Lewis Marland and his team finished 4th on the card play off and Wilmslow millionaire Jim Caldwells team of John Kelsall(11) John Roome(17) and Steve Barlow (4) took 3rd place after scoring 39 on the back nine.
Bramhall’s Simon Hemsley((11) Ian King(6) Joe Kirwan (7) and Cheshire senior team Captain Gareth Bradley(+2) had a frustrating front nine before a best of the day 43 points on the inward nine saw then move into second. Bradley showed his class with three birdies on the closing holes.
Colin Roberts is a very intelligent bloke who has a tremendously successful engineering company, although it is hard to believe as he is still wearing his face mask inside out every week. Colin is thoroughly enjoying the new world handicap system which has given him a new lease of life and a few extra shots. He teamed up with Alan Turner(22) Dave Marchant(22) and Andrew Williamson (16) to take first prize with just 81 points.
Well played chaps.
The Winter season was cut very short to only five or so events due to lockdowns. I wasn’t going to have an order of merit but unfortunately Kev Hart worked out that he has won it and he told all his pals what a great player he is. He also wants a prize.
