Maxitours at beautiful Vale Royal Abbey
The tremendous weather continued as Maxitours events headed into a warm and hazy June at Vale Royal. The course is maturing into one of the best in the North West and was once again in brilliant condition for todays’ competition.
A great day was had by all at this five star golf course and equally impressive clubhouse. New PGA pro Ben Derbyshire has added a real buzz to the Club and their hard working manager Ian Embury runs a very tight ship indeed.
Terry Hines and his cloth capped team came down from Chorley to play Vale Royal for the first time;
‘Eee that were fabulous’ said the likeable Lancastrian ‘’we’ll be back!’
‘Stunning’ announced David Dean. ‘We all love it here!’
Elliot Crabtree was in the woods a lot today, his ball went in the oaks near the 10th green, hit the Elm on the 15th and went in the Birch trees on the last. Ironically the only native British tree he didn’t hit with his ball today was a Crabtree.
Late starter David Dean finished his round and then headed off to Northwich to watch Roy ‘Chubby’ Brown live in concert. ‘The show will seem quite tame compared to some of the language my team were coming out with after their bad shots today!’ Joked the Woodside man as his team finished in 24th spot.
Duncan Hesketh has just returned from a golf trip to Florida. He played well for the first two days out there but then he told me his golf suffered as he struggled with a ‘flying right arm’. I told him that he should just grip the club lighter and let his elbow naturally hinge into his right side. He corrected me as his swing was fine. Apparently his right arm kept involuntarily waving at a voluptuous cheerleader driving the refreshment buggy and he couldn’t stop buying drinks from her.
Colin Roberts from Alsager has spent tens of thousands of pounds playing golf all over the world in the last six months and he has only just returned from Nice on Tuesday after yet another golfing vacation. The practice seems to be reaping dividends as on form Colin wins a pair of FJ socks for his 5th place.
Simon Hemsleys(8) Bramall team picked up 46 points on a terrific back nine effort after collecting a stuttering 37 points on the front nine. Their 83 points was good enough for 4th place. Gareth Bradley (+1), Nigel Hall(8) and Mark Clewley(4) completed the team.
Les Russon(13) also from Bramall and his team of senior Macclesfield golfers Paul Carroll(19) Duncan Adshead(20) and Steve Pegg(22) took third place. Smooth swinging Carroll hit a great shot into the16th to win nearest the pin and keep his team ticking along nicely.
Despite dropping a shot on their opening hole Wrexhams’ Paul Fell (6) and his cosmopolitan team of Ian Venables(12) Mike Lowe(8) and curly haired likeable scouser Ben Kinsey(4) took 2nd place with 85 points. Ex -army man Fell showed his true grit with a very valuable birdie on the closing hole.
Dave Stanhopes’(11) team took 1st prize today after a wonderful 87 points. The Dunham man is learning to fully relax on the golf course and is showing his true colours after he took an impressive one over par 37 shots on the tougher front nine to give his team a great a start. Long suffering team mates Phil Smeathers,(6) Tom Jarvis,(14) and Dave Antrobus(10) looked to be in a state of shock as they are not usually in the winners circle. In fact ‘wild’ Tom Jarvis has never had a top three finish despite ten years of trying. He normally only carries 13 golf clubs in his bag– his 14th club and most used is a strimmer he carries around with him to search for his balls in the long rough.
Well played chaps great victory.
Thanks to all who played and battled the traffic your efforts are appreciated, Tim
