Maxitours at Magnificent Hazel Grove
Another full field of talented Maxitours golfers enjoyed the latest Maxitours event in todays warm Mediterranean conditions.
Hazel Grove is another Dr Alistair masterpiece, the course which lies in the foothills of the Pennines was presented in immaculate condition and the wonderfully undulating Mackenzie greens were really enjoyed by all the players.
‘That is a great golf course’ said the well travelled Steve Parle on his first visit to ‘The Grove’. ‘Another magnificent course you’ve brought me to Tim’ said the well dressed John Wreag. ‘What a terrific venue’ said the badly dressed Andy Sandham.
Many thanks to the eight members of my home club Knutsford who kindly supported todays event. After completion of play Knutsford legend Bob Sutton can normally be found anxiously studying the various beers on offer in the clubhouse, today Bob was anxiously studying the scorecards after teaming up with the underrated Denis Bamford, Kevin Pearce and David ‘profiterole’ Kelly. They recorded a magnificent 80 points to appear high on the leaderboard. Well played chaps.
Ex policeman John Stubbs celebrated his 65th birthday with par at 1st hole today. He then happily retired for the next 17 holes.
Maxitour regulars Lewis Marland and Alf Shillitoe are two lovely blokes who never win a bean. Today they had an unusual air of confidence as they brought along two handy looking single figure players. The team played great golf to just finish in the prizes with 81 points.
Ex Man United legends Stuart ‘Poncho’ Pearson and Jeff Wealands teamed up with Mike Sleater and Pete ‘Mad as a Mongoose’ McManus and they also scored 81 points for a fourth place finish.
Consistent Gary Garner and his team had a great back nine to take third place on a card play off, also with 81 points.
Charismatic three handicapper Darren Wood from Swinton Park saw his team playing average golf for the first 16 holes however Simon Kusick birdied the 17th and Alan Jacobs looked emotional as he rolled in a twelve footer for another four point haul as the strong finish saw them in second place on 82 points.
Todays runaway leaders were big Mark Robinson, ex Rally driver Stuart Coupe, Mike Johnson and the golf mad John Hughes. These four recorded their first Maxitours win for nearly three years with a superb 87 points. Ten handicap Mark Robinson did most of the damage with a tremendous front nine. ‘I was the best player in our team by a long way’ said the modest Pleasington man. Congratulations on a great performance.
Congratulations to Keith Coxon (dozen AD333s) for winning Nearest the Pin.
Congratulations also Terry Davison (dozen AD333s) for unusually stringing two good shots together to win ‘Nearest the Pin in 2’ on the 18th.
