A fabulous day for golf with benign conditions and a comfortable temperature made for a perfect combination.
As John Hilditch checked in he made mention of the Tiger Woods video being released of his failed sobriety test and said if he was as famous as Woods there would be hundreds of such videos of him staggering around but mainly from lads golf holidays and not driving !!
Iain Bartholomew turned 50 yesterday but was not impressed when he was asked would he now be entering the Seniors section – you don’t look a day over 40 Barty !!!
It was a game of two halves for top Premier League Ref Mike Dean’s team as they went out in a mediocre 36 points but came storming back in with 41 on the back nine for a respectable 77.
Gary “Big Boy” Brooks (new nickname now) drove the 1st with a monster shot of over 300 yards to 20 feet and then calmly rolled in the putt for a dream start but more was to come on the Par 4 406 yard 5th when he holed his wedge from 120 yards for yet another eagle WOW !!!!! Unfortunately the rest of Gary’s team could not help him out as they came in with a middle of the pack score of 76.
Much was made of the fantastic condition of the course so all praise to the green keeping staff and also to top Steward Lee and his catering team for the superb breakfasts, bacon and sausage baps and other freshly made culinary delights that were prepared throughout the day.
As always the management team of Peter & Fiona plus Sam in the Golf Shop were all very attentive and accommodating throughout the day so thank you to them for a smooth operation.
Thanks also to my friend and fellow PGA colleague Matt Turnock for stepping in and making the day run trouble free again so I could relax and enjoy my family break. “It’s a tough job but someone has got to do it I suppose” commented some Maxitours regulars apparently when they found out I was away. Another player commented “I’m coming back as Tim Maxwell in my next life”.
Congratulations to John Stubbs, Dave Allen, Guy Hall and John Royle on a fantastic performance today and a return to the winners podium compared to last week when they couldn’t hit a cow’s backside with a banjo. Super to see these guys in the prizes.
Thanks to all those who played today and for your continued support.
