**Fantastic Summer Schedule released tomorrow afternoon!**
Maxitours at stunning Delamere Forest
Another full field enjoyed the wonderful Delamere Forest golf course in todays pairs betterball event.
This great Golf Club is also one of the most exclusive in the country and anyone proposed for membership must be approved by every Committee member. There is a rumour that when a premiership footballer applied for membership recently there were so many black balls flying around the committee room looked like the corner of a rabbit hutch.
Delamere is quite rightly recognised as perhaps the best Inland Winter course in the North of the country and today the greens were a great credit to Paul the Head Greenkeeper and his very hard working staff.
‘What a great course’ said John Travolta lookalike Roger Percival, ‘those greens were unbelievably good’ he added. Percival had earlier rolled in a lovely eagle put on the 2nd to help his team record 46 points which earned a 4th place finish.
Peter Coughlin and Mike Wilson continued their good form as they also collected 46 points with the poorly dressed Mike Wilson collecting back to back birdies on the 7th and 8th holes.
The great Severiano Ballesteros recorded no holes in one in a tremendous playing career. Today Colin Roberts recorded the fifth hole in one of his incredibly average playing career. A delighted Roberts looked like a chubby Hale Irwin as he did a lap of honour around the 6th tee, high fiving his three playing partners before nearly falling into the pond below, after holing his tee shot on Delamere Forests signature 6th hole.
Big and very likeable Dave Antrobus represented Britain at Karate in the 1970’s. Sometimes, when he is playing poorly, he still shows off his fine chopping action as he makes his way around the right side of the golf course. Today Dave teamed up with his new best friend John Anderton and they played great golf to score 47 points. Seven handicapper Antrobus from Vale Royal recorded four birdies ‘it was a great team effort’ said Antrobus ‘even if I did play a lot better than my partner’.
Neil Todd loves his golf but despite being a great supporter of Maxitours he has never had a top three finish. Today the golfing Gods looked down on him and decided that this was his day. ‘That was the best I have ever played’ said a stunned Todd. A chip in for a birdie on the last meant a 47 point hall for the Cheadle man and his better looking partner Don Milligan, and they took the honours with a fine back nine performance. Well played chaps.
Thank you to everyone for playing in todays event.
