*Spaces at must play Knutsford on Thursday 29th April (venue for the Cheshire PGA Championship on 23rd April)

Maxitours at the Mere

The Mere was the five-star venue for Maxitours competitors today. Feedback was excellent and the general consensus is that the golf course is in its best condition for years. It was also a real pleasure for me to see all my players enjoying the golf, sunshine and a few drinks with each other after their round. WE ARE BACK!!!!

‘The fairways and greens are superb for mid April! That is in great nick!’ Declared well-travelled Ian Snape ‘ Excellent!’

It was a very early start for Stuart Blake and his Knutsford team. Stuart remarked that it was the earliest he had been up since he was a schoolboy 63 years ago. Team mate John Atkin always dresses like a schoolboy and he enjoyed playing some great golf in his well-worn shorts in the minus 3 conditions.

Mike McKenna was proudly wearing his brand new £200 footjoy myjoy shoes. He treated himself and has had his initials MM carefully stitched into the leather on his heel. ‘He usually plays like Mickey mouse’ teased team mate Dave Monk. The team was excellent today however scoring 85 points.

The local Knutsford team of Eddie Ellis(11), Jim Kenyon(14), Tony Tighe(20) and James Clarke(23) took the early lead with 86 points. Tighe has had such an extraordinary life he is currently writing his auto biography- he needs to add another chapter after this famous Maxitours podium finish.

Joe Stanley(1), Shaun Mudalige(19), Adam Carolan(13) and Knutsford Captain Rob Sims(14) took third after losing out on a card play off. Picking up just two points on the 17th hole will give this team sleepless nights for the next few weeks.

Leading the way was the Vale Royal team of Andy Buckley(10), Pete Woodbine(16), Don Phillips(15) and Ian Pessol(13). A terrific 46 points on the front nine was where the tournament was won. It has been a terrific week for Japan with a Japanese female player winning the amateur ladies prize and Hideki winning the green jacket on Sunday. Andy Buckley actually drives a Toyota so the Japanese will have even more reason to be cheerful tonight. ‘I’m having Sushi for my tea!’ Announced the Sandbach man.

Thanks to everyone for your amazing support.

I hope you had a great day,
