Maxitours at stunning Sandiway

Perfect golfing conditions greeted Maxitours players in deepest Cheshire at Sandiway Golf Club this morning.

A gentle zephyr, fast running fairways and immaculate greens meant a great days golf was enjoyed by all.

The course really was pristine and a number of players were visiting the course for the first time.
‘That is an amazing course- I am definitely going to bring my Captains away Day here!’ said Mark Harding.

Thanks also to the catering staff who fed and watered us all so well throughout the day.

Jack Coleman and his senior team have been hibernating this Winter but they soaked up the sunshine and enjoyed the first event of what should be a great Summer season ‘That was wonderful’ said Jack after his round.

Barry Meagher is a lovely chap and I had a nice chat with him after his game. He is a modest man but I learnt that he was an international badminton player in his younger days. He is famous within the badminton circuit for his drop shots. He certainly had plenty of dropped shots today as he could only manage 34points and a share of 65th place.

I am easily confused with names especially when Wilmslow’s Tom Davis(12) was playing in his first Maxitours event and he checked in with his younger brother Guy who is the spitting image of him and even wears the same glasses. The third member of the team arrived and I was amused to learn that it was his identical twin brother Hugh(14). The other team member Mo Yousef claimed to be a fourth adopted brother -but I think he was pulling my leg. Tom and Hugh were delighted to finish in 5th place.

Nic Hercules(15) looked like he had the weight of the world on his shoulders playing alongside erratic Alan Pratt (26) He needed all his strength as he carried his partner well to finish in 4th place.

The only Lady golfer in the field led the way for much of the morning after attractive Karen Taylor(16) from Haydock Park and partner Peter Bean(10) recorded an impressive 45 points- they eventually had to settle for 3rd place.

Maxitours favourite Lewis Marland (14) teamed up with Paul Cain(15) and they were delighted to finish in a season best 2nd place also with 45 points. On the back nine they had three 1 point holes, three 3 point holes and an incredible three 4 point holes to score 24 and win the back nine play off in style.

Hale’s Brian Greenbank(6) and John Newton(18) took the honours with a terrific 47 points. A great team effort saw the likeable duo play the tough Sandiway par threes in two under par. Greenbank is a solid player and picked up more shots with impressive birdies on the tough 7th and tricky 17th hole. Well played chaps -great win.
