Maxitours at Wonderful Helsby

Still spaces for teams at rearranged Preston on Weds – AMAZING COURSE!

Maxitours at leafy Helsby

There was lots of excellent feedback from everyone who played at a blustery but superb Helsby golf course. Thanks to Kieran and everyone at this friendly Cheshire Club for hosting us so well. I believe the course was excellent.

Karen Gallagher and my long-suffering wife Suzy both did great jobs running the event today.

Suzy came back home buzzing remarking: ‘How ‘friendly and charming’ everyone was’.

She also added- ‘Who is the very loud one from Davyhulme -he is really funny.’

‘That’s Kev Hart. Stay well away from him,’ I replied quickly.

It was wonderful to see bad fisherman/bad golfer Sam Leach in the prizes. Sam is a great bloke and his Lymm team finished in 4th place. I thought Suzy had made a clerical error when I saw this team near the top of the leader board but after double checking the card I was surprised to see that the result stood.

Great scoring from Nigel Uttleys Heyrose team who finished in 3rd place also with 84 points.

Sandiways Gary Neiles, Keith Jackman and father and son Joe and Paul Yates took 2nd slot with 87 points.

Saddleworths dream team of Lee Tilley, Dave Rhodes, Dave Sarsfield and ex Wigan Rugby league Chairman Pete Norbury took first place. Well played chaps – they had a wonderful 49 points on the front nine!

I am slowly wading through my Winter entries. Please bear with me for a few days.


The last hole is perhaps the toughest closing hole in Cheshire and Martin Keates whipped his 4 iron to 18 inches to win nearest the pin and finish his day on a high.

  1. Hi Tim,

    Any chance I could have the 2.19 tee at Bramhall.
