Maxitours at Hesketh
Historic Hesketh Golf Club was in tremendous condition for the latest Maxitours event. All players agreed the journey to Lancashire’s golf coast was well worth it as they were rewarded with warm sunshine and a stunning course. Thanks to all the staff for their hard work and friendliness throughout the day.

There were a few signs that Autumn is not too far away. Mark Taylor should have been concentrating on his putt but instead he reported that he had spotted a few falling leaves gently blowing across the 14th green. Neil Wright reported that there were Swallows gathering on the telephone wires near the 2nd hole. He was worried that they weren’t fattened up enough to be fully prepared for their upcoming arduous migration to Africa in search of warmer weather. Dave Antrobus is also heading South this winter on a golf holiday. He looks as if he has plenty of calories in his system and is more than ready to safely survive the trip.

It is great to see so many mature players trying to look young by wearing expensive designer golf outfits on the course. Sixty-nine year old John Dickenson narrowly pipped Ray Tennant to win the prize for oldest guy in the field wearing a white belt.

In today’s event Steve Foxcroft from Knutsford was delighted to be the main man as he appeared on his team card fourteen times. Unfortunately this is not as impressive as you might think as they finished in last place with just 67 points. His pal Trevor Webb is a great bloke but he looked shattered after a tough day on the links, ‘I’m off to find a very dark room to have a lie down .’

Absolutely perfect golfing conditions and yellow tees meant scoring conditions were perfect throughout the day. The good natured Ringway team of Andy Thompson(10), Nigel Oakes(5), Dave Aden(12) and Rick Walmsley(4) took fourth place with 85 points.

Consistent Christine Kelsall(22) from Pleasington was the only lady in the field and she nearly repeated last year’s victory as she helped her team to 86 points and 3rd place. Prestbury’s Lee Charnley(6) was on top form and only dropped two shots to par all day. Jonny Conway(13) and Roger Dent (14)completed the team.

Ray Ward(16) from Hindley Hall has had a few barren months but recently found his form at Sandiway two weeks ago, his good play continued as he teamed up with Jordan Garner(4), Phil Ashcroft(14) and Gary Garner(6) to take 2nd.

Taking first place was the Grange Park team led by 1 handicapper Leigh Smart, Ex tour Caddy Ray Tennant(4), Andy Jackson(4) and Mark Bullman(12). The popular foursome recorded a very impressive TEN birdies between them as they made the most of the Hesketh par fives. Great golf chaps! Well played.

Thanks to Cheadle based Holidays 4 golfers who I would have no hesitation in highly recommending for your golfing trips abroad. They kindly supported today’s event. The top 6 teams all receive vouchers for £100 off a foreign golfing holiday for 4 booked through them-0161 428 0963.
