Results from todays Maxitours Legh Arms Classic Event at Prestbury GC.

One hundred and twelve talented maxitour players teed off at the fantastic Prestbury Golf Club today. No wind, blue skies and fast running fairways made for ideal conditions, those 28 players who returned from the tremendous week in Turkey must have felt like they were still playing in the Mediterranean .

Jack Kirwan the seventy three year old phenomenom from Bramall continued his great form to record 44 points, the super senior really enjoyed the all you can eat buffet in Turkey and if you watched him closely he was up and down around seven times a night to ensure no dish was missed, today this practice paid off as he was up and down eight times on his way to a tremendous second place finish, David Keen his partner had never seen such class around the green.

Sean Woodward and Barney Ross stole the show with a magnificent 45 points, the single figure duo from Didsbury were delighted to record their first Maxitours victory and Barneys tremendous birdie on the tough 13th hole was the highlight of their round.

Wayne Rooney was impressed by much of what he saw today on the 15th green indeed birdies by Ian Ainsworth and Mark Ashworth really made this gentlemans day however the United megastar went back to pruning his hedge after watching Phil Smeathers and Dave Stanhope score no points on this simple par 4.

Ian Ainsworth hit an absolutely fantastic 5 iron to three inches on the 17th and Steve Dobson was closest on the 7th hole to win the vouchers for the tremendous Legh Arms restaurant. Derek Fulluck won the draw for the £50 Legh Arms voucher and celebrated with a bottle of red wine, he is going to tell his wife he won the voucher playing golf.

Results from the brilliant Snooper Shotsaver trip to Turkey .

Day one saw an incident free journey to the fantastic Cornelia Deluxe hotel in Turkey , the warm welcome by the staff and free champagne was a glimpse of the absolutely tremendous hospitality we received all week.

On the first tee at the stunning National golf club the following day however Neil Griffiths and James Marner looked a little worse for wear. After getting great value from the free hotel bar Neil had enjoyed a night chatting to his friend ‘Huey’ who lives in the toilet and James Marner also felt the marble bathroom floor was the safest place to sleep, however this didn’t prevent him winning the pairs event alongside Steve Best with a solid 39 points.

The ‘Turkish Shotsaver Am-Am’ was played for over the next two days on the wonderfully challenging Faldo courses and despite a late challenge from the Maxwell team, the combination of Cath Rawthore, Julie Matthews, Steve Best and James Marner took the honours with scores of 83 and 72 points.

The final two days play was on the tremendous Carya golf course which was like a picture post card golf course, tall pine trees, white sand and blue lakes made the course a real treat, Simon Maxwell and James Marner were both triumphant however it was James who held his nerve with some tremendous shots on the back nine and took the final order of merit prize.

All three courses were absolutely fantastic and are now firmly in my ‘all time top ten’ and the hotel was of the highest standard, food conissiur Jack Kirwan raved about the all you can eat buffet and the house red wine was superb. I have no hesitation in highly recommending the hotel and courses. Details of next years trip to Turkey will be released next week. All 28 players plan to return next year, please let me know if you would like to come as I need to book the package within the next month.
