Maxitours at Wonderful Wlimslow

Maxitours visited another of Cheshire’s greatest courses today as nearly 100 golfers enjoyed playing golf on the hottest February day ever recorded,

The course is always a treat to play especially with the best tees in Cheshire together with excellent fast running fairways.

Award winning Caterers Karen and Simon are lovely people to work with and they a real asset to this great Club. The professional staff are also on the ball and assistant pro Ben Stanier can’t be more helpful -he has a very bright future. Thanks to all the staff- great work today, thank you.

You can’t beat it when you are carefully checking nearly 50 scorecards and trying to input all the results correctly in the computer and the last group out forgets to bring in the nearest the pin marker. It was actually quite nice today however having a lonely wander for nearly a mile over the firm dry fairways with the sun still nice and high in the sky and the evening really starting to draw out.

I often overhear some strange conversations in the bar and I am not sure if this one was a compliment or not. Bob Mottershead was talking to his pals about his partner John Dickenson who was having a comfort break.
‘It’s amazing how well he plays considering how bad he is.’

The scoring was very close in todays event with 5 pairs sharing 3rd place on 45 points. It was my ex Chemistry teacher Neil Drummond(12) and Brendan Leighton(18) from Macclesfield Golf Club who took 3rd place on the card play off. They narrowly pipped Knutsfords Dave Kelly(9) and Dave Harlow(17).

Second place was won by two welsh wizards from Carden Park- Paul Fell(6) and Colin Bryan(10) These two live near Wrexham and played great golf after successfully sobering up from watching the rugby union at the weekend.

Taking first place was Turton golf clubs attractive Sarah Ormrod(17) and her less attractive partner Dave Greenwood(11). They had a strong finish to their round inspired by Sarah’s impressive birdie on the tricky 14th hole. Well played guys – great victory.

The report is shorter than usual as I have had a few issues inputting scores on my computer!

Thanks to everyone for your 100% attendance -ONCE AGAIN.!

Yours in golf,
