Glorious Vale Royal Results
Vale Royal is now recognised as one of the finest courses in Cheshire and it was once again presented in immaculate condition for todays full field of extremely talented Maxitours players. Thank you to all the Vale Royal staff for your warm and very professional hospitality.
Spring officially arrived today when a butterfly was seen fluttering on the course and Martin Bray was spotted in the Car Park. This thin blooded and pasty faced Mancunian only plays golf in the Summer. Today he decided it was just warm enough to dust down his clubs and enjoy the Mediterranean conditions and he was delighted to par three of his first four holes on his way to scoring a very respectable 40 points.
Alex Jerman’s ball must have hit a sprinkler head on the par 4 thirteenth hole as his tee shot finished on the green, he then holed a classy 15 foot eagle putt to send his partner, Dr Martyn Berrisford, wild with delight.
Joe Kirwan is another terrific bloke who is absolutely golf mad. He can be seen scaling the gates of Bramall Golf Club at 6am most mornings in order to get in some valuable time on the practice range. I played with Joe, his brother and his lovely wife in a major Pro Am at Castletown Golf Club on the Isle of Man a few years ago and the team was going well. Cath played a rare errant shot when she missed the green on the stunning 18th hole, her ball came to rest on a rocky precipice with a 200 foot drop down to the Irish Sea below. ‘Don’t try and play it love, it’s only a game and you could kill yourself if you fell of that cliff face, oh hang on, I’ve just realised- you get a shot here’ said a concerned Joe.
The talented 60 year old today teamed up with his good pal the retired fireman Charlie Rooney and they scored a terrific 45 points to finish in 4th place.
John Wraeg and Harry Malpas finished 3rd as they also scored 45 points. They looked like they had found a penny but lost a pound after failing to score any points on their last hole.
A few years ago Chris Heggarty fought well above his weight when he married his very attractive wife Gail. Today the likeable Chorlton member was fighting well above his weight once again as he recorded a career best five birdies to finish in 2nd place with a great 45 points.
An anonymous Maxitours golfer who can’t resist ‘the call of the links’ today secretly played while his wife thought he was at work. He was spotted by his playing partner this morning frantically driving around Northwich town centre searching for a chemist shop in order to buy some sun cream before his game. ‘I made the mistake of buying factor 30 last year but she can spot any slight skin glow, this season it has to be factor 50!’.
Big hitting Pete ‘sunbed’ Holmes from Macclesfield Golf Club always has a healthy glow, this 15 handicapper started his round with two majestic birdies. He then resorted to playing his usual rubbish for the next 13 holes allowing his partner Mark Brierley to step in. Holmes then got lucky once again as he birdied 2 of the last three holes in a storming finish to score a winning 46 points. Well played chaps!
Thank you to Steven and Jason Ballard from Shotsaver for their continued support of my events it is really appreciated. (the new Shotsaver s430 tour is in my opinion the best Golf GPS system on the market).
Many thanks to all golfers for playing today, I hope you had a great day.
