Maxitours at perfect Prestbury

Prestbury Golf Club have recently employed a new caterer and new head green keeper, both fresh recruits seem to be doing a tremendous job. World class bacon baps were served up by Michelin rated chef Richard Howden before a fantastically presented golf course from new head green keeper Mark Crossley was enjoyed by all players. Even the new Secretary Dawn is incredibly attractive and efficient. Many thanks to ALL the Prestbury staff.

Apart from Central London there are more millionaires per square mile in Prestbury than anywhere else in the country. The huge Prestbury golf Club bonfire reflected the wealth in the area.

Barney Ross rents out his apartments to students in Manchester. ‘Bloody hell -I could furnish half my flats with the stuff in that bonfire! I’m sure I spotted a chippendale chaise longue near the top.’ Highly skilled cabinet maker Duncan Cheslett only uses the best raw materials and he was also seen snooping close to the fire.

The lowest handicapper in the field was the only female playing today. Young England international Gemma Clowes plays off plus 2 and she has a very bright future- remember the name. She showed her class once again as she scored 37 points alongside the far less talented Pete Hamlett- there is absolutely no need to remember his name unless you need a good mechanic…

Wayne Rooney was in his garden once again practicing his sideways passing. He was surprised to see David Kelly make a rare birdie on the 15th hole. Coleen asked him why he didn’t get closer to the action as the garden fence was blocking his view a little, but he refused. ‘I can’t- the boss doesn’t want me making too many instinctive forward movements’.

In today’s event scoring was very close. For the first twelve holes or so Maxitours players enjoyed superb Autumn weather however some sharp showers late in the day meant scoring got tougher over the closing holes as equipment and clothing started to get a little damp.

It was great to see ex European table tennis champion John Hilton(12) back in the prizes. It was his wayward big hitting partner Richard Blackwell(13) who saw his drives pinging and ponging in the trees but Hilton steadied the ship as they scored 42 points.

Mark Birtwistle(8)and Alex Ashworth(10)- both Great lads from Great Harwood -had their best Maxitours finish also on 42 points to take fourth.
Ashton on Mersey nice guys Paul Donnely(8) and John Veitch(15) also had their best finish of the year as they finished 3rd on 43 points.

Mark Jones(14) and Paul Nightingale(8) will be singing all the way back to Clitheroe after they scored 43 points and they had an excellent back nine to take second .

Winning their first ever Maxitours event after plenty of bad golf over the years was Mike Banister(5) and Rob Allen(11) from Pleasington Golf Club. Rob owns a successfull printing company and he stamped his authority on the game after his birdie on the tricky 12th hole. Mike Banister had a career first with three successive birdies in the middle of his round. Well played chaps great golf.
Many thanks to everyone who played today, your support is always appreciated. Tim
