Maxitours at Llangollen
There were very few better places to be in the World than at the Vale of Llangollen on a sunny, warm, Autumn day. As Bryson DeChambeau and his uncouth pals would say – Awesome!
After a torrent of rain closed the course on Monday it was incredibly playable today, thanks to the green keepers for all their efforts.
The food at Llangollen is also awesome and it is worth the trip just to speak to Gwen and enjoy one of his bacon butties. Gwen is a lovely softly spoken man and has always looked after us incredibly well I will be sad to see him leave next month. His food has a superb reputation. There is a lovely menu but Cod features heavily. You can have Cod goujons in a bap, cod goujons and chips in a basket or cod goujons, chips, peas and tartare sauce. I didn’t ask him what the special was.
Tony Hibbert is famous in his home town of Wolstanton. He is now recognised as the worst golfer in the North West after a recent Maxitours report exposed his terrible play and high handicap. When he checked in, he told me that the worlds’ worst golfer has just got worse. His handicap went up last week.
When he eventually got on the first green today after his usual scuttled shots down the fairway his team mates asked him how he wanted the flag?
‘Nearer.’ He replied.
Jack Colemans team were a player short. When they handed the card in they asked for a good ghost player to help their score. A haunted house wouldn’t have done the trick as the team scraped to 73 points.
In todays event scoring was tough. And yet again a surprisingly low score was good enough for first place.
Sharing 1st on 84 points was Dave Buckley, Rick Howard, Will Lancaster and Dave Carter from Antrobus. The likeable quartet had 47 points on their outward nine but stumbled home in 37.
Jim Caldwell’s Wilmslow team took the card play-off after completing both nines in 42 points. They didn’t drop any shots which was critical to their success. Well played chaps. Lee Charnley (5) Peter Griggs (8) and John Kelsall (8) were the hand-picked team.
Thanks to everyone for your 100% attendance. Incredible.
