Maxitours at pure Preston
Head greenkeeper Jonny Roberts is at the top of his game and he did a fantastic job to get the Preston course in amazing condition. The phenomenal greens were cut and ironed for our players. They were also incredibly fast considering the rain that has fallen. Other courses in the area were underwater but this class green keeper doesn’t know the meaning of a course closed sign- brilliant.
‘Those Greens were magnificent!’ Reported Cheshire senior Captain Gareth Bradley.
Regular player Andy Buckley announced that it was ‘The best course I’ve played in a while.’ His girlfriend gives birth next week so it will be the only course he will play for a while. Good luck Andy.
Registration for today’s event was in the driving range academy so I had the pleasure of working alongside head pro Andy Greenbank. He was great company and a huge help to me and my players. Thanks to a top, top professional.
Pete Dolans team had an impressive 14 putts between them on the first green to get their round of to a desperate start. Things didn’t improve very much throughout the day.
At the half-way house the superb sausage rolls were the talk of the day.
Paul Woodbine had a near death experience when a gust of wind blew the puff pastry back into his mouth just as he was taking a mouthful. It took him three holes to recover.
Kev Hart was cold, wet and famished when he reached the promised land of the half way house. He was just about to savour his first delicious bite into his warm sausage roll when it was snatched from his grasp.It was card payment only and his team just had cash. It started to rain a little harder on the unlucky Swinton man as he trudged hungrily to the tenth tee.
There were plenty of soggy scorecards handed in to me but retired policeman Andy Hall gave me an immaculate looking card. I don’t know how he did it. Playing partner Mick Fenton suggested that it could have been stored in his wallet which is known to be watertight.
There is no chance of Dave Knight getting corona virus. His damp waterproofs haven’t been washed for years so all his team were keeping at least thirty feet away from him throughout the day,
In today’s event two teams tied second with 81 points. Neale Laurents(15) Dukinfield team of John Harrop(11) Chris Clough(13) and Paul McDermott(14) had 44 on their front nine but fell away with 37 points on the back nine.
Ed Wilkinsons Lymm team had 37 on their front nine but an impressive 44 on the back nine to win the card play off. Ed’s golf has improved since he started eating an orange a day. Unfortunately for his waist line it’s a Terrys chocolate one. Roger Percival (5) Martin(2) and David France(18) were his team mates.
The Fixby Hall team took first place with 82 points. Mike Dempsey(12) had back to back birdies on the 11th and 12th holes. John Dickenson(18) Arthur Gray(12) and Pete Newey(14) completed the team. Well played guys.
Many thanks to everyone for your tremendous support today. I had just one team I know well cancel with a legitimate reason. Everyone showed their class – thank you very much this is really appreciated. I hope you enjoyed this great venue.
