Maxitours at sumptuous Stockport

Stockport was looking great this morning for the penultimate Maxitours fixture of the Summer season. This class golf course is getting right back to its very best despite an incredibly wet couple of months. Thanks to highly respected Adam and his hard working greens team for all their efforts.

‘The course was immaculate’ announced John Atkin.
‘Those fairways are beautiful’ reported Paul Browne.
‘The greens are brilliant!’ said Roy Ainsworth ‘mind you I putted like Ben Crenshaw’ said the modest Antrobus man.

The catering is also superb thanks to Sue and Paul. Head Professional Gary Norcott also serves his members extremely well with one of the finest pro shops in the area. Thanks to everyone at this lovely Club.

Gary Hodkinson hit his best shot of the day in to two feet on the 15th hole. Unfortunately he 3 putted for a bogey. ‘I was unlucky’ was his only excuse. Even though he let his team down badly on the course he was first to the bar ‘Even though he was hopeless out there if he buys the drinks we’re definitely inviting him again’ said team mate Frank Hindle

Lancashire farmer Richard Palmer returned to Maxitours action after taking last week off to buy some sheep. He spent over £6000 on 4 pedigree ‘Blue Faced Leicesters ‘ and the ram alone cost him £1900 . He was a’ red faced golfer’ himself after scoring a best of the day 46 points on the front nine followed by a very embarrassing 37 on the easier back nine.

‘We call Graham Jones ‘the anchorman’ of our team’ said Dave Parker before his round.
‘ Is that because he steadies the ship for you?’ I asked
‘No -he just drags us down to his level each week’ replied Dave.

In today’s event the scoring was slightly better for the morning players who enjoyed rain free conditions.
Rob Hands and Simon Hemsleys team scored 84 points to take the early lead before the Lewis Marland and John Hilditch teams scored 85 points.

Taking the honours however were Didsburys Paul Dalby(5) , Phil Vokes(5), Barney Ross(5) and Chris Cyprus(12) who recorded their first win for nearly a year with a very impressive 88 points. ‘We had a great day out there’ reported likeable Phil.

Late in the day they were nearly pipped by the Manchester United duo of Frank Stapleton(14) and Stuart Pearson(6) who teamed up with Kevan Hawkins(6) and Dave Wilson(8) to take 2nd place with a solid 87.
Richard Blackwell(12), Daniel Moore(26), Tony Jennison(6) and John Hilton(12) also played well in the afternoon rain and they scored 86 in the very damp conditions to take 3rd place.

Thanks to everyone for your support and integrity -there was a terrific 100% attendance which was incredible considering the forecast, thank you very much indeed.
Yours in Golf, Tim
