Maxitours event at Stockport now Thursday + fabulous Dunham results

*Mondays Stockport event has been moved to Thursday 12PM Shotgun!!!

Maxitours at Dunham Forest

Dunham Forest proved what a fantastic Winter course it is as it hosted todays Maxitours event.
Despite heavy overnight rain the golf course was more than playable:
‘Considering the rain that was great!’ Announced Andy Shaw
‘That was surprisingly good! What a great Winter course’ Said a delighted Jim Caldwell.
‘I’d play on there every week!’ Declared Les Edwardson.

Thanks to Dunham Forest for helping 100 players enjoy their weekly fix of golf. The winter membership sells well and it is easy to see why when so many rival courses are closed.

With Valentines Day just around the corner it was great to see two couples playing with each other in todays event. Alison and James Shipstone always enjoy playing together despite the fact that Alison is much better than her husband. Barney Ross and Paul Dalby were teamed up with Sarah Ormrod and her partner Dave Greenwood. They were impressed with the Lancastrian lovers. . ‘I can’t believe how nice they were to each other all day.’ Reported Barney. ‘I don’t think I could be that nice to my missus on the golf course.’

Martin Keates wants a divorce from his team. They were 16 under par through ten holes before collapsing on the closing holes to finish just 12 under.

The Stockport team turned up today and they told me that they were good friends with my old French teacher Mr Gregory who is a lovely man and a member at Stockport. Apparently, Peter Bottoman had a chat with him and said that he didn’t know I could speak French. My old teacher replied ‘He Can’t’
I didn’t know my old teacher played golf…
‘He can’t’ came the reply.

Everybody;s favourite Maxitours player Colin Roberts and his team made a rare appearance in the prizes. Dave Mason, Dave Marchant and Nigel Armitage all played better than usual to take 3rd place.

Single figure player Tony Jennison inspired his team and Dan Moore, Andy Hamlett and Steve ‘the billion dollar man’ Austin all contributed well. Moore made a great two on the tough 8th hole towards the end of the round to keep the team score ticking over. They were delighted to finish in 2nd place.

Winning today was the Birchwood team of Steve Aspinall (10)Colin Berry (12)Graham Wilkinson(9) and Alan Simpson(13). These are also regular players who have many barren weeks but found some great form today. When I asked them why they won they replied that they weren’t as daft as usual.

Thanks to everyone for your superb attendance today.

Yours in Golf, Tim
