Maxitours at beautiful Vale Royal
Maxitours visited Vale Royal Golf Course today. According to the knowledgeable Mick Mahon ‘It just keeps getting better and better!’
A few players had never played at Vale Royal before and they were rightly impressed with the Abbey and the terrific course:
‘This looks great. I’m really looking forward to my round!’ said an excited Pete Alsop who doesn’t get out of his native Buxton very much.
‘That was absolutely gorgeous!’ Reported Max Henderson. ‘I’ll be back!’
Thanks to all the staff at this five star venue for your excellent servce.
Golf is a great social game. In fact, the only time Trevor Nicholson speaks to his long-lost brother is when he finishes last in a Maxitours event and his brother rings him to catch up and take the mickey. Turn your phone off tonight Trevor.
One Maxitours player who can’t be named told me he is putting incredibly well after a private putting lesson with his wife on the kitchen floor. I’m not sure whether wife was on the kitchen floor or he was rolling the ball on the kitchen floor or both. But whatever he is doing -keep it up.
In a magical Maxitours day there were two holes in one! Pete Walters holed a superb eight iron on the 16th hole and even Jim Comerford managed an ace – a lovely five iron on the tricky 6th . Congratulations.
Even more impressive was Jim Caldwell who holed two full wedge shots for eagles on the 3rd and 13th holes. – Nice!
In today’s event Simon Wilkinson’s likeable Birchwood team had a terrific 46 points on their back nine to record a seasons best 3rd place finish. Even John Linsky(17) played well. John Fitzsimons(7) was solid and Colin Berry(12) saved his best golf until his closing holes -making vital pars on the 17th and 18th .
Jim Caldwell’s eagle heroics helped his team take 2nd spot also with 87 points , they managed to score 47 points on the back nine to just take 2nd place. Bob Picthall,(13) Peter Griggs(16) and Jon Hume(14) completed the competitive quartet.
Before he went out I had a great chat with Ashton on Mersey nice guy Chris Brownhill who had spent a morning working at the airport. He was telling me how he services planes when they land at Manchester before taking off again. If you have a spare thirty minutes, he will happily tell you all about it. His golf really took off today and his team had their first win for 3 years with an impressive 88 points. Twelve handicapper Gary Hempstead(14) had three birdies with shots to do some damage and Pete Hamlett(6) and Gary Arrowsmith(9) also contributed well.
Well played chaps
Thanks to all players for your support.
Yours in Golf,
