Maxitours at stunning Stockport
Stockport has always been a first class golfing venue with high quality catering and excellent professional staff. There is now even more of a buzz about the Club as the golf course is back to its very best.
‘That was superb!’ Declared a very satisfied Andy Veitch.
‘Brilliant greens- they were so fast and true -even after all the recent rain’. Reported Colin Roberts.
Two years ago after a wet Summer Stockport was waterlogged in places but today with all the drainage work and a superb new greenkeeper the course was incredibly dry. Excellent.
It was great for Maxitours players to play golf in the sunshine all day. (except a 10 minute heavy downpour) A great day was enjoyed by all. Pace of play was excellent with the last team getting around in 3 hours 50 minutes!- Thanks everyone.
If you think you are going through a bad patch with your golf at the moment please spare a thought for Dale Wallace. He turned up today after I hadn’t seen him for a few years. He was never the most positive person I have ever met but things were at a new low.
I asked him if he was playing well.
‘I have had the worst three years golfing of my life.’ He answered.
I have just returned from holiday in America and am struggling to write any funny stories as I am still jet lagged. I did overhear Ian Appletons team having a laugh. ‘Jokes about white sugar are quite rare but jokes about brown sugar – demerara!’
In today’s event incredibly 8 teams scored exactly 78 points. Colin Roberts team took the early lead with 81 points and eventually finished in a respectable 7th place.
Jim Clarkes(11) team of Maxitours regulars have been quiet for a few months but today they returned to form with 85 points and a second place finish. He played with his more talented son Chris(14), and the athletic duo of Graham Jackson(6) and Pete Ledger(18).
Also on 85 points but narrowly missing out on 2nd place due to a card play-off was the Saddleworth team of Dave Pullan playing with his two sons Stephen(2) and Ben(2) alongside Mr nice guy, Dean Jagger. (7)
Duckinfield’s Neale Laurent(13) can pick a team and the ex copper brought fellow members Jack Schofield(10) Adam Thomas(13) and Denton legend Matt Sayers(1) with him today. Neil only came in on the card twice as the team scored an impressive 86 points to take 1st place. Matt had 5 birdies but Adam Thomas was the danger man picking up four shots for his team on the back nine . Well played chaps great golf.
Thanks to everyone for your support.
