Results from Reddish Vale

Alistair Mackenzie would have been proud of his Reddish Vale masterpiece today.

The greens were immaculate, the fairways looked like Wembley turf, the tees and surrounds were manicured to perfection, even the squirrels gathering their Autumn acorns all looked really healthy and happy to be alive.

Jonny Davies couldn’t take his eyes off the well manicured long legged blond behind the bar ‘this is a really great club’ said the young Chorlton star as a housefly flew into his mouth.

The early competitors made the most of the great scoring conditions, Alsagers ageing duo of John Rigby and Ian Tinling playing in the first match of the day gelled really well and they set the pace with a great score of 42 points.

It was great to see Maxitours favourite Neville Dennis back in the prizes also scoring 42 points with his new best friend Ernie Kirkby.

Next to finish was Jimmy ‘five daughters’ O’Reilly, he was really on form today partnering John Reilly to record 43 points. John O’Reilly hit a great shot to within 2 feet on the 185 yard twelfth for a birdie, however last man to play John Aikenhead nearly holed his approach as he took the nearest the pin prize in dramatic style. Rick Pickard was closest on the 4th hole.

Bramalls Mike Spencer and Cheshire seniors player Joe Kirwan playing in match number three handed their card in and were delighted to be the third pair to take the lead (with 44 points). It soon became clear that this would really take some beating as the wind started to gust and before long an American hurricane swept over the Reddish Links.

The wind was so strong even immaculate Victoria Howarth had a few hairs out of place as she was gracefully blown off the 18th green.

By the end of the day nobody had come close to Kirwan and Spencers score and they were both delighted to secure the second Maxitours victory of their very average playing careers.

Charles Herbert and Moby Rawthore both earned valuable order of merit points in the wind as the Shotsaver Order of Merit nears its conclusion.

For the first time in Maxitours history today a male player turned up to play in bright pink trousers, Ross Birch assures me he is however very happily married. Mechanic John Davies playing in a four ball with Ross for the first time looked confused and wasn’t sure whether to shake brightly dressed Ross by the hand or give him a big kiss when they finished on the 18th green.
