Maxitours at astounding Stockport

Maxitours at astounding Stockport

I am delighted to announce that The Stockport Golf is back to its very best.

The course was described as being in ‘fantastic condition’ by Paul Gilbert and the praise just kept coming throughout the day. Well done to their superb head greenkeeper for making very real improvements to a class golf course.

‘That was the best I’ve seen it in years. Tip-Top condition!’ Announced John Owen.
‘The course is Immaculate!’ Beamed John Dickenson.

Stockport are a great club to deal with and Steward Paul and all the staff are famous for their hospitality. Even the assistant secretary John Ormiston had a smile on his face as he was busy helping park the cars this morning. Thank you.

Golf and beer lover Trevor Dunne is on lockdown for two weeks as his wife is having a small operation.
‘I am on total lockdown to support my wife. The only time I have been out and about is to play golf and to go to the pub.’ Superb dedication Trevor.

There was some great golf played throughout the day as players made the most of the immaculate greens and perfect weather conditions. Jack Coleman showed his class and rolled back the years with a nice four point birdie on the 8th hole regarded as many as the toughest par three hole in Cheshire. Paul Wrigley made back to back eagles on the 6th and 7th and Anthony Grinnell and Rick Sims both holed long approach shots for their eagles on par 4 holes.

Forgetful Mike Webb (described as daft by his team mates) left his wallet and mobile phone on the roof of his car this morning. He didn’t leave many shots on the golf course as his team finished in 5th place with 87 points.

Stockport’s Johhny Lord made the most of home advantage and his team were 4th on the card play off. Also scoring 87 points.

Sale’s 17 year old Cheshire boys sensation Adam Carr(2) had six birdies( including ones on the 17th and 18th ) playing alongside his Dad Steve (8) and Kev Moore (6). David Carlile (18) was the 4th member of the team and he appeared on the card once. He did buy the drinks though. The team finished 3rd.

Knutsfords Jim(11) and Georgie Clarke (20) teamed up with Pete Ledger (18) and Heyrose legend Graham Jackson(7). Young Georgi is playing great golf and she picked up 7 points for the team closely followed by Pete who had six three pointers himself. Great golf.

Taking the honours was Jon Hudsons(11) team of Mike Hill(7), Rob Blaine(17) and Andy Corner(11).
These guys have struggled all Summer and nearly had the wooden spoon in their last outing at Davyhulme but Hudsons putter got hot on the back nine as they came home in 47 points to earn a terrific and very popular win.

Well played guys.

Thanks to everyone for your 100% attendance. Incredible.
