Maxitours at Classy Clitheroe

A one -in -a -million day greeted Maxitours competitors at Clitheroe golf club today.

Glorious blue skies, a gentle breeze and eighteen phenomenal golf holes were enjoyed by everyone.

‘I played terribly. the team were even worse, the company was appalling but I had a great day. The course was brilliant’ Reported Brian Ankers.

‘Our fourball would all like to say what a fantastic course that is, we will be coming back very soon.’ Praised Norman Lees who was a guest in Colin Roberts team.

Clitheroe held the Lancashire county championship this weekend and despite the course measuring just less than 6500 yards and with perfect playing conditions the standard scratch was set at four over par 75. One player teed off at the first and hit two out of bounds before picking up his clubs and walking back to his car to spend the rest of the day shopping with his wife.

The scores today reflected how tricky the course plays

Despite children returning to school the roads were also exceptionally quiet and the journey from Knutsford took me just over an hour. A few players thought there was a school child playing today but on closer inspection it turned out to be sixty year old John Harker wearing his M &S golf shorts


.Adrian Browns team finished in 3rd place with 81 points. Adrian had to get up and down out of the sand at the last to move into second. He got over excited and thinned his shot across the green just as John Kelly was taking his first well-earned sip of beer. Luckily Johns elbow stopped the ball from going out of bounds.
After a little medical attention normal service was resumed although John had to drink the rest of his pint with his left hand.

John Hilditch(12) and the wealthy estate agents team are making more money than they know what to do with at the moment and their confident swagger transferred to the golf course with an exceptional 46 points on the front nine. Thing crashed on the back nine a little but Simon Walton(10) Paul Smith(12) and Don Campbell(2) were happy with 2nd place.

Sandways Gary Neiles(6), Jimmy Ainscough,(22) John Morton(13) and Lymms John Longworth(14) took first place today. The 120 yard 17th hole is possibly the best hole on the Maxitours circuit. As his three partners all failed to score Neiles coolly rolled in his birdie to keep the team spirits high. Well played chaps great golf. Thanks for your terrific support today, Tim
