*Conwy and North Wales event looking doubtful to say the least- update on Monday!!!
Maxitours at brilliant Bromborough
Maxitours paid its first ever visit to Bromborough in todays’ event.
Even without Clubhouse facilities and some mixed weather everyone had a terrific day. It was a huge success.
The Club hosted the Cheshire championships in 2017 and it has quality oozing out of every hole.
I lost count of the number of players who said they hadn’t played the course before but would be reporting back to their golfing friends on what a superb venue Bromborough is.
‘That is a fantastic golf course’ Declared Simon Hemsley.
‘We have to come back next year!’ Begged Lewis Marland.
Wealthy Andy Veitch must get a mention this week for the worst golfing outfit of the year (if not the millennium). Tatty brown trousers and an even tattier brown shirt were offset by a red sweater with navy blue stripes. When I commented about his attire he told me a lovely story about when he was playing a University match and a really scruffy opponent turned up. Andy thought it would be a walkover but the lad turned out to be an international.
Fascinating tale Andy. Buy yourself a new sweater.
Lewis Marland and Phil Dickens travelled to the Wirral together but sensibly they socially distanced with Phil being chauffeured around like a US tour pro in the back seat. Unfortunately, Phil played so badly he travelled home in the boot.
In todays event there were an incredible five teams sharing second place on eighty points.
Third place went to Steve Woods (17)Ashton in Makerfield team of Jason Atherton(10) Tim Potter(9) and Jeff Ratcliffe(6) with 39 points on the back nine. They were beaten into second by the Ed Wilkinson(6) Warrington team including. Pete Atherton(11) Martin France(3) and Roger Percival(6)
Simon Hemsley was on good form even before he went out to play.
‘ I’ve only been here once before and I won.’ Announced the modest Bramall man. Today he teamed up with Joe Kirwan(7), Ian King(7) and Gareth Bradley (+2) and they had the best of the weather as they went out first and set a target of 85 points that no team came close to threatening. The team picked up four birdies on the tricky par threes.
Well played lads terrific golf.
Once again there was 100% attendance which is terrific. Thanks very much.
