Maxitours at superb Vale Royal
Seven days ago the last Maxitours event took place in cold, damp conditions. What a difference a week can make. Firm fairways, lightening fast pure greens and Mediterranean temperatures saw Summer finally arrive.
‘That is my favourite course’ Announced Steve Heywood. ‘Brilliant day!’
‘Wow, this place just gets better. The greens were outstanding.’ Reported knowledgeable Andy Veitch.
Thanks to superb General Manager Ian Embury all his bar staff for serving my guys so efficiently throughout the day. I saw plenty of Stella making its way to the outside tables.
Karen Gallagher did a great job running my event this morning. Martin Humphries is a lovely man and always sits down right next to me and has a chat each week when he checks in. I was very relieved to hear him say that he thought Karen was much better looking than me.
John Linsky was playing bad golf. He couldn’t buy a par. Things got even worse when team mate Dave Monk’s thinned chip across the 14th green rattled into his calf muscle. Hobbling John then parred the next two holes.
Kev Hart knows even less about football than he does about golf.
Team mate Paul Yearsley asked him who he thought would win the Euros.
‘I don’t know.’ Replied Kevin. ‘Who’s playing?’
Scoring was excellent as players made the most of the brilliant greens and playing from yellow tees.
The fairways were running so fast even Paul Robinson drove the 3rd green and made a lovely eagle.
Denton quartet Gary Owen(9) Alistair Holloway (13) Lewis Ramsden (12) and Josh Forster (7) had a terrific 89 points to take 3rd
The Hopwood/North Manchester team of Paul Lord(5) Gary Hornby(14) Tony Senior (12) and Mathew Tench(12) had a slow start with 41 points on the front nine- they caught fire on the back nine with 48 points to secure 2nd place on the card play-off.
Arthur Albiston(12) appears in the new Man United documentary featuring Eric Cantona . It was Albiston who was the king today after making a superb birdie on the index 1 twelfth hole to help his side achieve a 90 point total. Kevin Hawkins (10) Gary Milne(8) and Brian Monks (3) completed the team. Well played chaps great score.
