The Xentum Classic at superb Dunham Forest

*Next weeks Cheshire Classic -Hopefully the two day event will go ahead at Prestbury and Mottram Hall if we are not in lockdown. (2 team spaces – but teams must play both days)
Your safety is paramount and I will attempt to go over and beyond correct procedures to allow play to continue.

Current position: After consulting many people and various groups and after guidance from the PGA and Golf England Maxitours will go fully hands free at Prestbury and Mottram Hall next week

Team Score cards will be on the 1st tee for team captains to complete. After the round scorecards must be photographed and emailed /WhatsApped to me upon leaving the 18th green.

Teams will therefore only interact with their own 4 ball and the golf course is a safe place to be.

The doors will be wedged open at both venues so no need for a code

I will be around all day but want to keep any social Interaction to a complete minimum

Catering and clubhouse information will follow.

Maxitours Xentum Classic at amazing Dunham

Thanks to all players for your terrific support today. I think everyone found it a great release from our current issues.

David Lippiate continues to do an amazing job as head green keeper at Dunham Forest and the greens were hand cut and ironed for our players first thing this morning. I think that they are currently the best greens in Cheshire and that was certainly the feedback from all my players today.

Mike and Leslie Saxon’s bar staff are also possibly the best we deal with all year. Beth and Kirsty are a real credit to Dunham Forest and a smile is never too far away with these superstars faces- thank you.

Martin Humphries world has fallen apart as there has been no sport on television and they have even stopped filming his favourite Coronation street. It was suggested that we could televise Maxitours instead. Watching Martins’ golf swing would certainly lift the nations spirits.

The course was playing shorter than usual with all the par 5’s in range for the bigger hitters. There were four teams tied for second place with 46 points. Ian Broughan and Gary Furlong took 5th, Macclesfields Brendan Leighton(16) and my old Chemistry teacher Neil Drummond(10)took 4th.
Wilmslows’ wealthy but generous Jim Caldwell(11) and James Cash(4) had a super back nine to take 3rd place but Rich Beam lookalike Roger Percival(5) and Andy Wright(6) from Lymm had a superior last 3 holes to sneak 2nd place.

Winning the Xentum Classic today was the legendary Manchester United combination of Ryan Giggs(12) and Nicky Butt (12). Dunham member Giggs had one of the most cultured left foots in the world. Unfortunately, he plays golf right handed. It was hard man Butt who did most of the damage on the front nine but then Giggs took over in injury time with a couple of great pars on the 17th and 18th. He had to be restrained from swirling his shirt above his head and running around the Clubhouse after smashing home a three-footer at the last.
Well played chaps. Thanks to everyone for playing. What a great day.
Yours in Golf, Tim

Dunham event still on!

Dear Maxitours player.

Following government guidelines the event at Dunham Forest on Thursday will take place.

Things are changing on a day to day basis so keep those fingers cleaned and crossed.

The Clubhouse will be open and the usual menu and hospitality will be available throughout the day.

Here are some precautions it will be wise to follow:

“1.Please send me team members names and handicaps prior to Thursday so cards will be ready for a quick check in.

2. Please nominate one of your party to collect scorecards and make payment for the whole team. (or pay by bacs prior to the event. 090128 SORT 80162994 ACCT- SANTANDER)

3. Leave the flag in position when putting.

4. Players may wish to avoid busy Clubhouse areas

5. Avoid shaking hands with your playing partners after your round of golf.

6 Please cancel if you are displaying any symptoms – your health comes first.

Many thanks Tim

Galvin Green Classic at fantastic Fairhaven

The Galvin Green Classic at fantastic Fairhaven

What a great day! Nearly every course in the North West was closed today but the famous Fairhaven links was well and truly open and enjoyed by all the Maxitours players.

The staff did a great job serving our guys before play. It was the busiest they had been for months and they were brilliant. Thanks to all players for supporting the caterers after their long hard Winter.

Dave Madely is one of the nicest guys in the World. He is a well-known supporter of clubhouse caterers and stewards and he polished off two pints and a Maxitours record three omelettes before his round. Dave continued his support of the Fairhaven catering team with a long stay in the half way house and then had another meal and a couple more pints in the clubhouse after play.
He followed it up with a bag of salt and vinegar crisps for dessert.- brilliant.

A mild breeze and no rain made for testing but very enjoyable playing conditions. The greens were excellent so plenty of putts were falling.
The toughest holes for teams to score on today were the 7th 8th and 17th and the easiest was 15th followed by the 12th and the 4th so teams playing those holes twice will have scores adjusted.
Competition was close on the shortened course and teams made mince-meat of the 4 par 5 holes!!

Mike George(9) from Sale GC keeps an immaculate scorecard- that’s normally the only good thing about his game. Today he played great however and alongside Chris Iceley(18), Jim Fletcher(11) and Gordon Tilsley(14) they took 4th with 89 points.

David Waites(10) Accrington team were also on good form and they took third place. It was good to see Pete Houston(14) playing again and Conor Taylor(9) and Jordan Brown(4) completed the Lancastrian quartet.

Mike Tarrant(12), James Wilson(7), Steve Halliwell(16) and Paul Stones(13) came down through the mist from their home in the remote Darwin hills and were delighted to be playing on the firm Fairhaven turf. A great team performance also saw them score 89 points for 2nd place after a card play off.

Congratulations to Richard Blackwell(13) and his Mottram Hall team for their excellent performance today. Two gross birdies on the 12th hole saw them pick up an impressive 8 points as they had a best of the season 50 points on the easier back nine. Steve Austin(13) John Hilton(13) and Ferrari driving Colin Lynch(14)completed the team
Well played chaps great golf.

Many thanks to John Gallagher the Galvin Green rep and all-around nice guy for sponsoring today’s event and looking after my players so well throughout the year. Please take a look at Galvin Green website galvingreen.com for some quality golf clothing. It even makes me look smart sometimes.

Thanks for your support- 100% attendance again – superb.

Maxitours at Curtis Cup venue Conwy

Thanks to all my players who travelled to Wales- despite a less than attractive forecast I only had 2 teams cancel for medical reasons which is a credit to everyone.
A great day was had by all.

The Conwy Golf Club is looking forward to hosting the Curtis Cup in June and the course should be in tremendous condition for this international showcase event. I am sure the 15.000 spectators they are expecting each day will enjoy the same warm Welsh hospitality extended to our players. Perhaps some of them will find Ken Clarkes golf balls because he lost a few today.

The greens were rolling very nicely and the fairways were excellent considering the recent rainfall.

The rain held off with just a light refreshing drizzle for the last few groups to enjoy on their back nine. The wind also dropped a little in the afternoon and the scores improved later in the day

Mike Kirchin is a great bloke and he was delighted with his team’s 72 point score which is a lot better than his usual rubbish. ‘We enjoyed that. I actually played well and I think there will be a few teams with a worse score than us this week!’
No there won’t Mike.

Scoring was incredibly close with three teams in the lead for most of the day with 86 points. World Class Premiership referee Mike Dean(5) had a VAR moment when his teams’ 3rd place celebrations were cut short after they missed out due to a card play off. His Aldersley team had to settle for 5th place with 86 points.
Richard Blackwell’s team were 4th and Lewis Marland’s team was 3rd after both had excellent finishes.

Second place went to the Heyrose team of Ian Hellens(11), Steve Blakeway(2) Josh Street(scr) and Tom Beevers(16). Josh had two birdies and an eagle on his closing holes. Cheshire senior Steve Blakeway showed his class with a birdie on the famous 17th hole.

Taking the honours were Lancasters Peter Griggs(13), Phil Robinson(10), Dave Goodwin(10) and Andy Buckley(9). They had a solid round but then Goodwin caught fire on the last few holes as the team went into overdrive. He made a birdie on the 16th and then in his own words ‘I hit a monster down the 17th ‘ An impressive Phil Robinson birdie on the last sealed the victory.
Well played chaps.

Thanks to everyone for your support, Yours in Golf, Tim.

Maxitours at brilliant Bolton Old Links

Room at Conwy on Monday – Curtis Cup venue later this year!!
Last few Spaces in the Cheshire Classic Prestbury and Mottram Hall 26th and 27th March!

Maxitours at Bolton Old Links

The best day of the year greeted the Maxitours competitors who travelled to Bolton Old Links.
Everyone was delighted to play on a terrific golf course under sunny, blue, Spring skies. Tremendous.

‘That was amazingly dry – what a lovely course!’ Declared Alsagers Dave Mason.
‘What a brilliant lay out- I love it here.’ Announced well-travelled Steve Heywood’

This forward thinking Club have plans for a new Clubhouse and everything should be completed within two years which will make it a premier venue in the North.

Simon Hemsley is a tidy golfer but had a rare poor day on the course. The sausage sandwich made up for everything – ‘4 sausages! 4 sausages! On a single bap! This has to be a maxitours record!’ Said the well-built Bramall man ,
Yes it is Simon.

Wild hitting 22 handicapper Dan Moore picked up his balls today from the 2’s sweep after he made an uncharacteristic two at Dunham Forest last week. I was handing him some budget Srixon’s when he demanded the more expensive-to-lose Pro V1s

I wish I was his club pro.

.
Lancastrian farmer Richard Palmer plays every week on Maxitours but disappears in March and April as he goes to Cheltenham races and then his Leicester blue sheep start to lamb. He thinks it will be a good year as the sheep have all been scanned and there are lots of twins but no triplets. Apparently, this is good as sheep only have two teats so it saves him a job feeding by hand. ‘Nature gave them two teats to feed two lambs’ He remarked. I asked him why cows have 4 udders but only give birth to one calf. ‘The other three are for the milk marketing board. Replied his team mate John Farnsworth..

Taking third place today was Heyrose nice guy Lewis Marland(15), Neale Laurent(14) Phil Dickens(13) and John Harrop(10). They pipped the Mellor and Townscliffe team of Janet(10) and Steve Heywood (6) Dave Sully(8) and Graham Davenport(9).

Despite a three shot handicap Jim Clarke(9) was in the prizes again. He teamed up with Peter Ledger(16) Graham Jackson(5) and Mark Haggarty(12). The honours today went to Sandiways Gary Neiles(5),John Longworth(12) John Morton(11) and Jimmy Ainscough(20) with 81 points.

Well played chaps.

Thank to all the friendly staff at Bolton. You could not have been more hospitable.

Yours in golf, Tim

Thursdays Ringway event moved to Bolton Old Links- new times below!!

Next week
Conwy 9th March – course fully open
Fairhaven Tuesday 10th March – the course is drying well but holes 13 and 14 will be out of play- the event will still be over 18 holes however.

Dear Maxitours players,

Due to the heavy rainfall Thursdays event has been moved to European Tour school qualifying venue Bolton Old Links.

PLEASE INFORM YOUR TEAM MATES
I did a reccy and played it first thing this morning and it was excellent. It should be even drier on Thursday.

Some members are booked to play in the morning so times are now staggered starting at 10am rather than shotgun:

If you are unable to play please let me know immediately.

Thanks for your patience after this extraordinary weather it will feel like Spring very soon I hope!

Yours in Golf

Tim
