Maxitours at blustery (but very dry!) Delamere
England and Wales were on flood alert today and many areas were battered by strong winds and heavy rain. Incredibly, Delamere Forest was a tranquil little oasis for a group of happy golfers enjoying the blustery but dry conditions.
‘We’ve dodged one hell of a bullet’ was the general consensus of the 85 golfers who really enjoyed one of the finest inland courses in the North.
Full figured Alex Jerman was delighted with his away day at Delamere Forest. ‘The course was superb and incredibly dry. I also think that serving pastries behind the bar is a great idea. I haven’t had a sausage roll for years- its brilliant here!’
Brothers Steven and Jason Ballard from Shotsaver are terrific Maxitours sponsors. Due to their Mediterranean good looks and sense of style they are very often mistaken for the charismatic and talented Italian Molinari brothers. Unfortunately when playing on the course they often get mistaken for the Marx brothers. Today Jason teamed up with big hitting Moby Rawthore and he was overjoyed to finish in a career best 2nd place on 42 points.
Carl Kennedy and Kit Parkington from Northenden reached the turn in 24 points and picked up a further 3 points on both the 10th and 11th holes. The increasing wind speed and the intense pressure associated with winning such a major event on the sporting calendar, saw the likeable duo dropping shots on the back nine faster than Roman Abramovich sacks his managers.
The badly dressed duo of Terry Davison and Arthur Jowell normally finish well below the middle of the field each week. The main reason they support Maxitours Events is in order to sample the wide variety of beers on offer throughout Cheshire . Today, after another less than average nine holes, Jowell could be seen salivating as he looked across from the 9th green towards the warm Delamere bar. Davison then eagled the 11th hole to earn five points for his team. Jowell (who owns half of Macclesfield) then birdied the 13th and 14th before Davison made a superb birdie at the last. They looked stunned as they entered the clubhouse and their 42 point haul was good enough for 2nd place. ‘I’ll have a pint to celebrate’ said Jowell.
Winning todays event was the pairing of Dave Marchant and Bob Sinclair. These two terrific blokes have played each week for the past five years without a victory to their name. Today they teed off first in the calm conditions and destroyed the Delamere course. ‘It was like an outer body experience’ said the Alsager men as they recorded four birdies on their way to 46 points and a four shot win.
Very well played indeed chaps.
Thank you to all who supported todays event despite the poor forecast. Many thanks also to Steven and Jason from Shotsaver for their marvellous continued support.
