Maxitours at Stunning Laranjal Golf Course
Wow, what a great day!
Incredible weather, an absolutely class golf course and a wonderful group of golfers made it a day in paradise for Maxitours players today.
‘Magnificent!’ Reported Ian Gemmell
‘That’s the best course on the Algarve!’ Declared Chris Hammond
‘Does it get any better than this?’ Beamed Richard Palmer
‘That was the most enjoyable round of golf I have ever had’ Announced Dave Westwood (who has had his fair share of bad rounds.)
The course was playing easier than usual with calm sunny conditions and fast running fairways. There is a Hairdresser in Quinta shopping centre who also sells second hand pro V1s. I was tempted to do a deal with him when I had my haircut last week. Hundreds of balls are usually lost in this event but the quality of the golf was such by my players I think he will have to stick to selling overpriced shampoo instead.
Simon Hemsley turned his holiday around today with some great golf. Things got off to a troubled start when he elbowed a complete stranger as he put his luggage in the overhead compartment on his outbound flight, he then got stung by a wasp early on in his round today. He managed to elbow his way onto the leader board with some excellent golf as his team took 3rd place overall with 81 points.
Jim Clarkes team are defending their title and they had a solid start with 82 points but they were pipped on the back nine after some great play from Allan Browns team which included Bramall’s Andy Bennett. Andy had the round of his life culminating in his first ever hole in one on the 17th with a solid five iron which gently fell into the cup. Congratulations.
If any players are after a free drink and are wondering what Andy looks like I will happily point him out to you later. He helped his team also including Mike Brown and Neil Worthington to a surprise victory with 82 points
Kev Harts team is currently in 2nd last place. But apparently it’s not his fault.
Tomorrow we play the fabulous Quinta do Lago South course. This beautiful course is Mrs Maxwells favourite especially after she easily defeated her husband there last week. It’s a cracker.

Get to bed.
Yours in Golf, Tim
