Maxitours at sunny Knutsford

Nearly 50 intelligent Maxitours golfers had a terrific days golf at Knutsford.
Described as the best nine hole course in the North by Denis Durnian this super layout was enjoyed by all:
‘I’m amazed how dry it was’ reported a delighted Brian Ankers
‘Wonderful’ beamed Colin Roberts
‘Remarkable how dry it is out there’ said Nigel Ashton.

The course was magnificent considering there has been over 5cm of rain in the last few days Head Greenkeeper Mark Dingle does a great job and throughout the season the course has been more manicured than a wealthy Cheshire housewife.

The new drainage system is terrific and this course will take some closing this Winter!
Conditions were excellent as the calm before the storm meant there was not a breath of wind for players for most of the round.

Thanks to Sandra and Leon in the Clubhouse for looking after us so well during the day

In today’s event Colin Roberts famous short game was on fire as he chipped in twice to make birdies on both front nine par threes. Unfortunately things faded slightly on the back nine.

Nice guys Sam Leach(11) and Chris Walley(17) from Lymm took 3rd place with 43points and a great back nine. Both players came in 9 times.

Wychwood Parks Richard Williamson(12) and Phil Robinson(11) scored an unwanted ‘blob’ on their first hole but for the next 17 holes their iron shots were ‘eating graphite’ as they fired at every flagstick to score 44 points and take 2nd place.

The honours went to Oxford Zoology graduate Mick Mahon and his less intelligent pal -sheep farmer Richard Palmer. If you ask Richard he will actually admit that his collie is smarter than him.
These lads are some of the nicest men you will ever meet and they play badly nearly every week on Maxitours. Mick has scored a total of 5 points in his previous 25 fixtures this season so he was not on form. Class is permanent however and the Mytton Fold men scored 47 points to win in style. Mahon picked up 3 points on the 13th and then 4 points on the 14th and 4 points on the 15th hole in a real hot streak. Well played chaps- I am delighted for you both.

Thanks to all players for your support, yours in golf, Tim
