Maxitours at World Class Hopwood

Hopwood was outstanding today. New Head Green keeper Matt has transformed Manchester Golf Club into one of the premier courses in the North. Matt was trained at Augusta and is using his vast experience to great effect!

Thanks to good looking and efficient Karen Gallagher for running the event today while I was failing miserably to qualify for the Seniors British Open. I played at Bearwood lakes and closely inspected the woodland and the lakes on several occasions.

Karen told me all the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful throughout the day.

The Hopwood course fairways were running well and lots of teams scored heavily on the front nine. A combination of heat and tough closing stretch saw a few teams fade away.

Taking third place was Maxitours regular and all round nice guy Steve Aspinall and his team. They had a superb 88 points but were just pipped on the back nine by Steve and Janet Heywood, Manchester Alliance Captain Chris Lee and Graham Davenport. Steve is next years Captain at this great Club but it was playing partner Graham Davenport the current Captain at Mellor who was on fire with 45 points on his own.

Winning late in the day was Lee Tilley and his Saddleworth team of Ian Sutton, Dave Sarsfield and Dave Rhodes. These lads look dangerous off their handicaps but have been terrible for a couple of years. They were superb today. Big hitting Sarsfield was on fire and Rhodes and Tilley were rolling in the putts

Well played guys great golf. I am delighted for you.

Thanks to everyone for your 100% attendance yet again.
