Maxitours at fabulous Fixby Hall

Huddersfield Golf Club (aka Fixby) was in unreal condition for todays event. Highly respected Head professional Alex Keighley had warned me that the course was excellent and she was true to her word.

Fixby is known as the home of Yorkshire Golf and all our players were certainly given a warm Yorkshire welcome today- thanks to all the friendly staff for your hospitality.

‘That was a joy!’ beamed Koos Alders. ’What a beautiful course!’
‘Fantastic!’ reported Dave Griffiths ‘That twelfth hole is amazing!’
‘Thanks Tim, I’ve had a great day.’ Said well mannered Martin Cox. ‘Brilliant golf course and they’ve even got Timothy Taylor on draught in the bar- life doesn’t get much better than this!’
‘Absolutely Stunning.’ Was all that James Shipstone could say.

The course is a cracker but even off the yellow tees it is a really tough test of golf. The Yorkshire rough is ‘proper rough’. James Brown somehow managed to lose four of his titleist balls and two Callaway clubs in his adventurous round.

The undulating greens are the main defence of for this masterpiece and at least three players were reported to have five putted on the ultra slick surfaces. Martin Cox had the most impressive disaster after he hit a wonderful chip to within a foot of the 7th hole before deciding to four putt, much to the amusement of his opponents.
Two handicapper Liam Rex is usually a class act but today he had the touch of a dinosaur as he finished in 2nd last place with 27 points playing alongside John Newton.

Ian Venables(12) golf game has been going down hill faster than a rabbit on a promise in recent weeks. Today he found some form to take 5th place alongside order of merit leader Paul Fell(4).

Ex Copper Paul Robinson from Davenport finished in 4th spot playing with Charles Waldren – Kelly who isn’t as posh as his name suggests.They had a spiffing 42 points.

The Bolton based duo of Saran Ormrod(20)(Turton) and Matt Smith(3)(Dunscar) recorded a first ever podium slot with 43 points.

Second place went to new father Greg(6) and new Grandfather Chris Adams(12). Greg celebrated the birth of his baby girl Edie with his Dad by having a day out at Fixby and the celebrations continued on the golf course- congratulations boys.

Carl Marginson(14) was FC Uniteds manager for 12 years before taking a break in October. He teamed up with his former goalkeeper John Worsnop(14) to take first place with 45 points. Worsnop hits it as hard as he can and recently he burst both shoe laces after an aggressively struck drive. He rose to the challenge over the closing holes and eagled the last to secure a first ever victory. Well played!

Thanks to all who played today. Yours in Golf, Tim

PS Thanks to Maxitours players for your tremendous integrity, I am blessed to have such a class group of golfers. I know things are busy but if you can continue to give me two weeks notice if for some unforeseen reason should you need to cancel that would be appreciated.
