Maxitours at Vale Royal

Perfectly still and mild conditions made for a very enjoyable day at the lovely Vale Royal complex. This is an exceptional venue with possibly the best Winter greens in Cheshire and always a firm favourite with our players. Thanks to all the staff for their hospitality.

All the reports from my players after their rounds were very positive indeed.

It was great to be back on British soil after living the dream in Portugal and I really enjoyed the cool dank, cloudy conditions in Cheshire today.

The report is slightly shorter than usual as I cant remember what my children look like.

The Lymm team of Phil Young(9) Rick Shaw(10) Paddy Moran(11) and Russ Collitt(13) took 4th with a solid 84 points. Rick Shaw was in the bar afterwards and explained how the team score could have been much better. He hit his best drive of the day but it only went 140 yards and disappeared into a bunker. He blamed it on the faulty lake ball he had just taken from his bag. I’ve heard every excuse under the sun but this is a new one on me.

Lovely Heyrose member Lewis Marland(15) was treated to a 1st tee start and he teamed up with Dukenfields Neale Laurent(14), Phil Dickens(13) and John Harrop(10) to take 3rd place also on 85,

Second place went to the strange talking Accrington team. I can’t write anything funny about them as I cant understand a word they say. They scored 86 points. Dave Waite (10) Pete Houston (14) Connor Taylor (10) and Jordan Brown(4) were the team members.

Winning today was the Sandiway/Lymm team of Alan Forber(15) Gary Neiles (6) John Norton(12) and Jimmy ‘five pars’ Ainscough(21) who made the most of his 16 shots. Well played guys I am delighted you had a great day.

Thanks to all players for your 100% attendance once again,
