Maxitours at World Class Wilmslow

Wilmslow Golf Club gave an incredibly warm and friendly welcome to the full field of Maxitours players who enjoyed this great course today. Manager Keith Melia and all his staff were really professional and excellent to deal with.

In sharp contrast to Jim Rymer’s golf sweater the greens were carefully ironed this morning to produce a fast running excellent surface. The bacon sandwiches were also first class. ‘The bacon in these baps is crisp and tender and the bread is so fresh my plump mate Dave Antrobus will be gutted when I tell him what he’s missed –he would be in heaven’ said food connoisseur Dave Stanhope.

Charles Herbert(14) is famous for his wayward drives and he can regularly be seen visiting adjoining fairways. Today things were so bad he even lost his trolley playing the 4th hole and had to gallop across three fairways to retrieve it.

Top amateur snooker player Chris Hegarty(8) required an early tee time today as he had a big league match this evening. On the course his white ball rattled in the jaws a few times as he struggled to find his recent good form and he had to settle for 35th position.

In today’s event their were strong performances by loaded Al Demmy(11) and even more loaded Pat Keenan(17) from Bramall with 40 points, Brian Greenbank(5) and Dave Wainwright(12) from Hale Golf Club who scored 41 points and Order of merit leader Paul Dalby(3) and Barney Ross(3) from Didsbury with 42 points.

Mick Mahon, Frank Hindle, Keith Fitzhenry and Richard Palmer were in an unusually positive frame of mind before play after a financially successful trip to Cheltenham races last week. Unfortunately it was Keith and Dickie’s golf balls which had no trouble flying over the fences today and they crossed the line five lengths short. Mick(22)and Frank(14) usually fall at the first hurdle but today they upset the odds as they finished a season best third position with 42 points.

Maxitours is fortunate enough to have a handful of players from the Wirral and Southport areas who regularly play and Woolton Golf Club’s Chris McCane(12) and John Parkin(9) were even more Chirpy than usual this morning. They were really laying on their Liverpudlian accents thick and fast after their footy team scraped a lucky victory against a transitional United side yesterday. They were even more delighted to record a second place Maxitours finish with a wonderful 44 points

To rub some more salt into Mancunian wounds today’s winners were from Royal LIVERPOOL-aaagh!. Auctioneer Geoff Guest (7) has a wonderful touch for a big guy, and he teamed up with Estate Agent Paul Lea(18) who has a terrible touch for a small guy. Towards the end of the round they realised they had a good score and things started getting a little tense. They could be heard across the course frantically telling each other to ‘calm down, calm down’. A strong finish saw fighting pars on the last four holes to earn a them a first Maxitours victory. ‘The tide has turned’ the happy scousers declared as they handed their card in.

Many thanks to all who played today. Everyone was very complimentary about the condition of the golf course.
