The Xentum Classic at superb Dunham Forest

*Next weeks Cheshire Classic -Hopefully the two day event will go ahead at Prestbury and Mottram Hall if we are not in lockdown. (2 team spaces – but teams must play both days)
Your safety is paramount and I will attempt to go over and beyond correct procedures to allow play to continue.

Current position: After consulting many people and various groups and after guidance from the PGA and Golf England Maxitours will go fully hands free at Prestbury and Mottram Hall next week

Team Score cards will be on the 1st tee for team captains to complete. After the round scorecards must be photographed and emailed /WhatsApped to me upon leaving the 18th green.

Teams will therefore only interact with their own 4 ball and the golf course is a safe place to be.

The doors will be wedged open at both venues so no need for a code

I will be around all day but want to keep any social Interaction to a complete minimum

Catering and clubhouse information will follow.

Maxitours Xentum Classic at amazing Dunham

Thanks to all players for your terrific support today. I think everyone found it a great release from our current issues.

David Lippiate continues to do an amazing job as head green keeper at Dunham Forest and the greens were hand cut and ironed for our players first thing this morning. I think that they are currently the best greens in Cheshire and that was certainly the feedback from all my players today.

Mike and Leslie Saxon’s bar staff are also possibly the best we deal with all year. Beth and Kirsty are a real credit to Dunham Forest and a smile is never too far away with these superstars faces- thank you.

Martin Humphries world has fallen apart as there has been no sport on television and they have even stopped filming his favourite Coronation street. It was suggested that we could televise Maxitours instead. Watching Martins’ golf swing would certainly lift the nations spirits.

The course was playing shorter than usual with all the par 5’s in range for the bigger hitters. There were four teams tied for second place with 46 points. Ian Broughan and Gary Furlong took 5th, Macclesfields Brendan Leighton(16) and my old Chemistry teacher Neil Drummond(10)took 4th.
Wilmslows’ wealthy but generous Jim Caldwell(11) and James Cash(4) had a super back nine to take 3rd place but Rich Beam lookalike Roger Percival(5) and Andy Wright(6) from Lymm had a superior last 3 holes to sneak 2nd place.

Winning the Xentum Classic today was the legendary Manchester United combination of Ryan Giggs(12) and Nicky Butt (12). Dunham member Giggs had one of the most cultured left foots in the world. Unfortunately, he plays golf right handed. It was hard man Butt who did most of the damage on the front nine but then Giggs took over in injury time with a couple of great pars on the 17th and 18th. He had to be restrained from swirling his shirt above his head and running around the Clubhouse after smashing home a three-footer at the last.
Well played chaps. Thanks to everyone for playing. What a great day.
Yours in Golf, Tim
