Maxitours at wonderful Hazel Grove

Maxitours at wonderful Hazel Grove

Hazel Grove was the latest high quality Cheshire course to host Maxitours this Summer. This is an incredibly friendly Club with front man and highly respected PGA professional James Rowlands setting the tone with his brilliant demeanour. The ladies section always do us an amazing half-way house with money generously going to charity. Red blooded Colin Roberts was struggling to socially distance from the attractive trio. Thanks to everyone at this great venue for your superb hospitality – what a Club!

Rob Platt and his team travelled over from Barnsley today. I love these guys. Team mate Carl Mollart went to the school where they filmed ‘Kes’ and he has played many times on the football pitch where Brian Glover brilliantly played the PE Teacher. Rob never managed to have a kestrel as a pet but he did have a magpie called Maggie. Unfortunately, it broke its leg when his Dad slammed the lounge door. He used a couple of swan vestas as a splint. You couldn’t make it up.

Dave Cooper has been in his garden for two months and he said it is now looking superb. He has been on a golf course for over 20 years but unfortunately his game is not quite as superb. His team finished 28th today.

Roy Ainsworth is a brilliant guy. I have heard every excuse in the book but Roy blames his slice on the fact that he has played lots of squash rather than tennis. That’s a new one on me Roy but it sounds very good.

Fred Ganton made use of the hand sanitisers on offer today and I saw him use them at least four times. ‘I’m also thinking of washing my hands with this team they are so bad!’ He announced after his round.

In today’s event scoring was again very close with four teams sharing second with 81 points

Heyroses’ Lewis Marland(15), Neale Laurent(14), Phil Dickens(13) and John Harrop(10) took 5th but better back nines were played by the Stamford golf club team of Phil Hudson(6) his son Sam Hudson(9), Michael Grainger(5) and Carlton Wheeldon(6). Roger Percival’s(5) men took third with a homeward 42 points. Martin France(2) Ed Wilkinson(5) and Peter Atherton(11) completed the team

Joe Yates(14) Lymm team took 2nd with an impressive 44 on the back nine. Joe played with his more talented son Paul,(9) John Morton(13) and Gary Neiles(7).

Winning were the third father and son combination to play today! Whitefield’s Nick Ford(11) and Nick Ford junior (13) teamed up with John Safhill (6)and Rob Rhodes(7) they had a great team effort to score 84 points and earn a three shot victory.

Well played chaps.
Thanks to everyone for your 100% attendance once again. Brilliant.
