Maxitours at Fixby
Fixby golf club was in exceptional condition for today’s Maxitours event.
The greens were ‘Rapid’ and the fairways were like carpets as our players enjoyed this stunning championship venue.
‘That was the hardest round of golf I have ever played. I think it was a combination of lightning fast greens, tough pin positions, breezy conditions and a general lack of talent.’ Admitted Richard Palmer.
‘What a course – that was superb!’ Declared knowledgeable Phil Smeathers.
‘That’s a proper test of golf – amazing.’ Announced Gordon Warke.
The food menu and service provided by the caterers at Huddersfield is also right up there with the very best venues we visit all year- thank you!
The day started well for Andy Oakes who had a big smile on his face as he enjoyed a famous ‘Full Fixby breakfast’ but things rapidly went downhill for the likeable Prestbury man who played like a sausage as his team could only manage 62 points.
Tomorrow is the Longest day of the year but it felt like today was even longer for me after I asked Frank Lyons if he was on form. Fifteen minutes later and he was still in full flow talking me through his most recent five rounds of golf.
It is great to see ladies playing on Maxitours and they are always very welcome. Christine Clarkson played today and she passed her friend Janet Heywood what looked like a golf tuition book. I asked for a closer look and discovered that it was entitled: ‘How to knit your own golf headcover’. Say no more.
Brian Hopkins (5) Majid Benyounis (22) Darren Whittaker(14) and Anthony Grimley(13) were out early n the day and they thought 77 points would earn them a mid-table finish – they will be delighted to learn that they finished in 3rdplace.
Classy Sarah Ormrod (16) Dave Greenwood(11) John Delaney(5) and Paul Smith(15) finished in 2nd place. They had a tremendous back nine of 43 points after a very average 36 points on the front nine.
Ashton in Makerfield good guys Ste Woods(21), Paul Woods(6), Jimmy McEwan(7) and Chris Bland(13) took first place. They picked up five shots on the tough par three holes when everyone else in the field were throwing them away like confetti. A great birdie from Jimmy on the last sealed an excellent team performance.
Thanks to everyone for your 100% attendance once again.
Yours in golf and friendship,
