Maxitours at wonderful Prestbury.
Prestbury Golf Club was the idyllic setting for todays event. The Harry Colt designed Cheshire course is a terrific venue with a great history. Many thanks to the excellent staff and friendly members who always make Maxitours players feel very welcome indeed.
Maxitours player and Dutchman Hubert Dunki-Jacobs buys truck-fulls of flowers from Holland to sell in the UK . He loves this time of year as it is the start of the golf season, it is also the time of year when we Brits celebrate Valentines Day and Mothers day. ‘Ze flowers are very expensive to buy zis year’ he informed me in the clubhouse before play. Hubert could not leave his work behind even during his game as he found himself mysteriously attracted to the wild flowers in the more wooded areas of the Prestbury course .
Wayne Rooney looked in deep thought today as he gazed out of his bedroom window to watch the Maxitours players tackle the 14th hole. ‘If these two fit strong guys can’t par this easy hole I’m going to sign for City’ he chuckled to himself. Unfortunately Andy Bethell and Andy Taylor fluffed their way to a bogey to leave Rooney looking bewildered.
Rory McIlroy lookalike Keith Fitzhenry is slowly getting used to his new clubs. Today he was in good form playing alongside Jim Furyk lookalike Richard Palmer. An excellent run of holes from the 14th helped them to record 43 points to finish in 4th place. The score could have been better had Keith not played the last two holes poorly. ‘My wisdom teeth started to hurt!’ claimed the likeable Lancastrian.
The overnight rain kindly softened the excellent Prestbury greens and the early starters made the most of the favourable conditions. Golf crazy Joe Kirwan and Mike Spencer were delighted to finish 3rd with 44 points. Joe made a superb birdie on the tough 18th hole as he gained some valuable order of merit points.
Fireman Darren Whittaker and oil magnate Ian King are also hitting some great form, their round ignited when Whittaker picked up 4 points after a birdie on the tremendously difficult 13th hole. Their 44 points was good enough for 2nd place.
Taking todays honours were Maxitour regulars Gary Garner and Mark Green who recorded 45 points to secure their first win of the winter season. Three team birdies and Greens majestic eagle on the 11th hole saw the Northern pair win in style.
Many thanks to all who supported todays event I hope you had a great day on the links.
