|Maxitours at five star Knutsford
Maxitours players thoroughly enjoyed playing at Knutsford in the singles event over the past two days. Manchester based European tour star Denis Durnian always rated Knutsford as the best nine hole course he had ever played and the reviews from 80 Maxitours players were also great this week.
‘Please pass on my compliments to the greenkeeper -the greens are fantastic!’. Raved top DJ Charles Herbert.
‘The course was extremely dry and those Greens are amazing for January.’ Reported Colin Roberts.
Cheshire amateur legend Gareth Bradley(+2) had never played Knutsford ‘I can’t believe how good the course is- I will definitely be back.’
Highly rated Head Green keeper Mark Dingle really knows his stuff and he has produced greens of the highest standard for the members over the past 8 years without fail. Keep up the good work Mark.
Thanks also to our excellent new caterers Ceri and Rhiannon for looking after us so well. Brian Ankers likes to get his money’s worth and he said his pre-round bacon butty was the best he has eaten for years. ‘There was half a pig on that sandwich!’ Said the delighted Lymm man.
Maxitours players looked to have partied well over the Christmas festivities and this had a negative effect on my sales turnover. I got my tight-fitting medium Galvin Green stock out for Phil Vokes as he is one of very few Maxitours golfers thin enough to try it on -but I was devastated to see him struggling to zip it up.
For some reason portly Graham Newnes imagined he could get into an extra-large half zip jacket but he ended up needing the help of two teammates to take it off.
Koos Alders wanted some change for the coffee machine and asked playing partner Martin Cox if he had a spare pound. ‘He’s got a few spare pounds.’ Joked good pal Mark Morris.
When Peter Maher picked up his scorecard he showed me an amazing new golf ball that comes equipped with beeps and flashing lights so that it simply can’t be lost. I asked him if it was a Christmas present.
In the singles event Milkman Don Milligan(13) whistled his way into the 5th place with an excellent 40 points. He showed his bottle with an excellent par on the tough 17th hole to ensure a solid finish.
Mark Haggerty(14) had the best round of the day yesterday and the well spoken High Legh man wins a Galvin Green windstopper for his efforts. This was good enough for 4th place overall with 41 points.
In the clubhouse John Farnworth(22) had a face which made Andrew Murray look cheerful. He dropped three shots on his final three holes to finish 3rd with 41points.
Second place went to improving Guy Levers(21) from Hale Golf Club with 42 points but this was pipped by an emotional Les Russon (13). Les suffered a heart attack last month after he played at Ringway and this was his first event back. Fortunately for everyone concerned he didn’t feel the pressure today and recorded an excellent 43 points.
Thanks to all players I hope you enjoyed the course and complimentary doughnuts.
