Maxitours at lovely Crewe
Once again perfect English Summer Golfing conditions greeted today’s Maxitours competitors. The James Braid designed Crewe masterpiece is the most Southerly venue on the Tour and those who travelled were rewarded with an immaculately presented golf course. Nearly all the players entered the Clubhouse after play and expressed how much they enjoyed this quality Cheshire course.
Over the past five years Maxitours regular Dave Antrobus has been on the receiving end of plenty of ridicule in my post-match reports. Hungry Dave has been described fairly recently as ‘portly’, ‘full figured’,’ heavy treading’ and ‘a salad dodger’. After a months’ break due to work commitments Dave turned up today looking really trim after a successful diet. When asked why he decided to lose weight he replied: ‘I became a victim of cyber abuse.’
Peter Short works on security at Manchester Airport and spends most days twiddling his thumbs or confiscating sun cream. Today he came off the course to be told about the Doha flight being escorted into Ringway by three RAF jets. He looked like the head fireman from Trumpton ‘An emergency? A real emergency? Bloody hell I can’t believe I missed it!’ said the devastated 8 handicapper.
Terry Davison nearly missed his tee time when his Sat Nav took him past Crewe station twice this morning. The likeable single figure talkative geordie did however find the flagstick on the 5th hole as he won nearest the pin in style. Retired civil engineer Steve Foxcroft also took nearest the Pin on the lovely 8th hole and he was delighted to narrowly beat fellow Knutsford member Dr David Arthur. ‘I’m not bothered I’ve got a much bigger pension than him’ Declared the newly retired GP.
Richard Palmer’s start time was getting nearer as he waited for his full English Breakfast to arrive, ‘your off in twenty minutes’ I reminded him. ‘I’d prefer to miss my start time than miss my breakfast’ he quickly retorted.
In today’s event Hazel Grove perfume supplier Ian Ainsworth(12) guided his team into 3rd place. Terry Davison(9) , Bernard McDonald(14) and Alan Clough(17) all scented victory before dropping points on the tough 14th hole.
Everyone likes the Alsager quartet of Colin Roberts(18), John Rigby(14), Dave Marchant(15) and Bob Sinclair(14). The Maxitours regulars are terrific blokes who love their golf and play five or six times a week. Today they were all magnificent and Sinclair was the pick of the bunch finishing with a solid four on the tough 18th hole as they finished in a seasons best 2nd place.
Taking today’s honours were last weeks’ sponsors the ‘ETIQUS watch’ team. Terry Hayward(11) from Cavendish had the finest back nine of his career as he knocked in four huge birdie putts in a six hole spell. ‘I felt like Sergio Garcia’ said the Buxton man. Prestbury’s Chris Adams (12), Gary Butler(8) and colour coordinated Jason Waite(11) made up the rest of the happy team. Great golf chaps. Well played.
I have some really popular venues over the next few weeks and places are in high demand, please give me at least 5 days notice if you need to cancel.
Thanks for all your support today and for continuing to play the game in such a great spirit, it was really great to get back to work after an enjoyable family holiday.
Yours in Golf, Tim.
