Maxitours at the Immaculate Knutsford Golf Club.
The Knutsford Golf course was in immaculate condition for todays Maxitours event, many thanks to Mark Dingle and his hard working greens staff for getting out of bed so early and presenting the course to such an incredibly high standard.
Maxitours got lucky once again with the weather today as there was just a small shower at eleven o’clock but the majority of players enjoyed warm, dry conditions for the whole round. Severe flooding hit surrounding areas both North and South of this stunning venue.
Knutsford is a lovely traditional Golf Club, old fashioned values, old fashioned clubhouse and it was even rudely suggested by Dave Antrobus today that it also has a badly dressed, old fashioned professional.
Hot, big and sweaty Ray Twist looked tired as he sank into his chair after his round on the newly flagged outside patio. Unfortunately the rear two legs of Rays chair were resting on the grass. As Ray sank deep into his chair, his chair sank deeper into the soft turf. A couple of greenkeepers and some serious lifting gear were required to resolve the unfortunate situation. Ray wins three srixons golf balls for incredibly never spilling a drop of his beer throughout his ordeal.
Graham Robins was delighted to record the first hole in one of his very average golf career when his ball disappeared into the hole with a delightfully struck nine iron on the short 14th hole. The Bolton man was so choked with emotion he was struggling to speak clearly as he entered the clubhouse ‘would anyone like a drink?’ he whispered to the steward.
Robins’ magical ace inspired his talented team to finish with an excellent 84 points which was good enough for second position.
The wealthy team of Darren Whittaker, Ian Handy, Ian King and Alan Demmy from leafy Bramall had their best result of the season as they finished 3rd with a solid 82 points.
Narrowly taking the honours today with 85 points was Gathurst Golf Clubs Keith Wheble, Conor Winstanley, Phil Carrington and Phil Ashcroft. The team recorded three 2’s on the 5th hole on their way to their first win of the summer. At the last Carrington coolly rolled in his par putt with more composure than a Mario Balotelli strike.
Ballotelli received a yellow card for displaying his finely tuned torso after scoring against the Germans tonight. In the clubhouse at the end of play Phil Ashcroft quickly took off his shirt as he tried to fit into his first prize xxl Galvin Green shirt, displaying a torso which deserved an immediate six month ban.
Many thanks to all players for supporting the event and thanks to the lovely members and staff at Knutsford Golf Club for their terrific help and hospitality today.
