Maxitours at wonderful Wilmslow
Wilmslow was in great condition for todays’ first Maxitours event of the Summer.
‘That’s how golf a course should be prepared’ Beamed well-travelled Colin Roberts.
‘Superb!’ Added Geoff Andrews.
The course is one of the best draining in Cheshire and Eric Blake was delighted to see his badly hit shots scamper down the dry fairway rather than come to a grinding halt in a deep puddle as they have done for the past six months at other courses. Thanks to Head Green Keeper Steve Oultram and his excellent team for all their hard work.
Wilmslow also has award winning Caterers and the Professional team is perhaps the best in the local area -thanks to everyone at the Club for looking after us so well.
Steve Mattinson plays in one of the older Maxitours teams ‘We’ve all missed outpatients appointments to play at Wilmslow today- but it was well worth it!’ said the likeable Mere man.
There was quite a lot of wind once again for our players to contend with.
‘Did you struggle in the breezy conditions today?’ I asked Frank Hindle
‘I never struggle with my golf, I just pick my ball up Tim.’ replied Frank. I like your style Frank.
I asked John ‘glass half empty’ Farnsworth if he had played well. He was more positive than usual.
‘I wasn’t too disappointed’ He replied.
Dave Dean’s team came into the Clubhouse and told me that they had ‘Ripped it to shreds’ out there this afternoon. Unfortunately, they were talking about what they did to their scorecard after they struggled to just 62 points.
Milkman Jeff Ratcliffe(6) has done three rounds in one day. The first two were delivering in Ashton in Makerfield but his 3rd round was the most productive as he helped his team into 4th position with 81 points
Third place went to Tony Jennison(6), Dan Moore (23) Gary Smith(9)and Richard Blackwell(13). They picked up just three points on both of the closing holes to throw away a well deserved victory.
In 2nd place was the Bramall team of Les Russon(12), Rob Kenyon(16), Steve Merricks(5) and Ken Clarke(14) who were also surprised that their 83 points was placed so highly. Rob has asked me not to mention his missed two foot putt at the last.
Wrexham based Paul Fell(6) Tony Hereford (16) Ken Jones(20) and John Evans(12) earned their first Maxitours victory after some excellent putting. They scored 6 points on their closing hole to pip the rest of the field. Well played chaps.
Thanks for all those who played today I hope you enjoyed the sunshine, Tim
Congratulations to Tony Stiles who holed his 2nd shot on the 5th hole to win some much needed balls.
