Maxitours at Marvellous Mere

Maxitours at Marvellous Mere Golf and Country Club

Once again superb weather conditions greeted well over 100 maxitours competitors at the Mere golf hotel and spa.

Thanks to the lovely Karen Gallagher for helping me to run the event today as I ran a members event at Carden this morning.

Once again entry into the 2’s sweep was higher than normal when Karen is around looks like my players all struggle to say no to an attractive blonde.

Feedback regarding the presentation of golf course was excellent so many thanks to Gwen and his excellent team for all their hard work
Managers Joe Gates and Max are also terrific to deal with and help the day run smoothly.

The scoring was once again not high which is a real reflection on the integrity of the players on my tour who play with genuine handicaps -thank you.

Congratulations to the winning pair Ashton on Merseys’ likeable Gary Hempstead and Steve Priest who took the honours in perfect conditions off the yellow tees with just 43 points. Priest normally has to say a few prayers when playing with erratic Hempstead but today Gary holed more than his fair share of putts to earn an emotional first victory . Well played chaps!

It is great to see nice guy Dave McCallum win nearest the Pin. I used to coach him twenty years ago when I was at Mottram Hall and even though I was talking rubbish he always used to give me fiver tip – legend.

Thanks to all Maxitours players who supported this event- sorry the report is a little shorter than usual- busy day! Tim
