Maxitours at lovely Lymm
Lymm golf course was in truly immaculate condition for today’s Maxitours event.
The course has made massive improvements in the last two years and I had lots of players raving about its’ presentation.
The Club is very forward thinking and there was a real buzz about the place today.
Bar manager Karen and her team were delighted to be kept busy and they were excellent throughout the day.
Those are the best greens I have played on this year!’ Declared Mike Lowe in the second group out this morning ‘The guys will love it out there!’
Incredibly very few of my players had experienced Lymm before and they were all asking to come back next year. ‘ Wow. I never knew Lymm was this good’ announced John Owen.
Friendly Scotsman Don Campbell is a fine two handicapper and has represented Cheshire seniors on several occasions. He is often looking for a game and helps me out sometimes if a team is short. The last two times he has played with complete strangers he has raised their game and they have finished first and second. Today I paired him up with Roy Ainsworth but not even Don could inspire this team. He was dragged down to their level and they finished a miserable 25th place.
Welshman Graham Jones is a lovely man but he missed a six inch putt on the 17th hole. As his teams worst performer he had to buy the drinks. Things went from bad to worse.
He walked around the clubs one-way system and was about to order the drinks when he realised he had forgotten his face mask.
He had to get one from his golf bag so did another circuit of the Clubhouse and once again started to place his long order. Unfortunately, the welsh accent combined with the mask meant the bar man couldn’t make out what he was saying.
‘Sorry sir can you repeat that?’
‘Bloody hell I’ve forgotten!’ And he set off on the one way system for his 3rd and final lap.
It was great entertainment – right up my street George.
The stunning greens and fast running fairways saw the average score in the mid 80’s which is the best of the year and a testament to the quality of green keeping.
Martin France and his local team were just out of the prizes after scoring just two points on their final hole. The green resembles a Pringle crisp and they were spending their prize money with several missed putts.
Simon Hemsley’s team were first out and they set the early pace with a terrific 89 points this led for most of the day until the Denton quartet of Garry Owen(10), Alistair Holloway(13), Josh Forster(9) and Lewis Ramsden(13) came in with 91 points. Garry is a performance analyst for the British Olympic taekwondo team and he couldn’t fault the performance of his guys today. They scored eight points on their closing hole as fitness paid off. Brilliant.
Thanks for your integrity everyone -100% attendance YET AGAIN.
Yours in golf, Tim
