Maxitours at Hesketh Golf Club

Maxitours players once again enjoyed golfing in glorious weather! Wonderful Hesketh Golf Club was the historic setting for today’s event and all the players enjoyed this classy half links, half parkland golf course.

Many of the world’s greatest players have graced Heskeths fairways and there are also plenty of fantastic pictures, trophies and memorabilia in the lovely Clubhouse.

The hospitality and catering really was superb throughout the day. Unfortunately after his recent highly publicised successful diet Dave Antrobus was back to his old ways this morning. He hit a new low when he was seen enjoying a two course breakfast. (several biscuits with his tea, followed by a full english breakfast).

Another chunky player, Roy Ainsworth, was delighted with his solid performance today as he returned a creditable 41 points. ‘My golf has improved since I started going to the gym’ he declared ‘twice a week I spend 20 minutes on the treader, 20 minutes on the rower and 20 minutes on the running machine!’

‘Do you turn them on?’ asked his playing partner Peter Heald, looking him up and down.

Hesketh is the oldest of the great Southport golf clubs and its clubhouse and course are both steeped in history, John Broadhurst(13) from North Manchester is also quite old and he is also steeped in history. He teamed up with jovial Ruel Spence(12) to score 44 points and a career best 5th place Maxitours finish.

Anthony Grimley(13) is a lovely, likeable and softly spoken dentist, however in recent weeks due to a loss of form his partners have complained that playing with him was like pulling teeth. Today he ‘drilled’ in a few putts early in his round and ‘capped it off’ with two closing pars as he played great golf and finished tied in a career best 5th place partnering Archie Tahir(4).

The low handicappers in the field made the most of the 4 par fives that all played less than 460 yards off the yellow tees. Mark Ashworth (+2) birdied three of them on his way to 45 points playing with Howard Rishton (12). Aiden Hoosen (2) and Ian Fairbrother(5) started their day with three gross birdies and finished with another two as they also scored 46 points to finish third.

Tytherington’s Steve Lowe (11) and Steve Pinnington (12) enjoyed the fast running fairways to take 2nd place also on 46 points. Winning the card play off was Pleasingtons Stuart Coupe(10) and Astbury’s Mike Johnson(6). Ex rally driver Coupe enjoyed taking the racing line on the dog legs and his co- driver Johnson moved through the gears on the back nine.

Very Well played chaps.
