Maxitours from splendid Preston !!!
A relatively dry but breezy day made for challenging conditions in today’s event.
Fresh sausage and bacon baps were the order of the day pre round provided by the caterers outside the clubhouse which were enjoyed by many players.
A big thank you to long serving PGA Professional Andrew Greenbank and his staff along with congratulations to Preston’s Greenkeepers for presenting the course superbly in particular the greens. Everyone enjoyed the overall experience of playing this gem of a course with many positive comments from players as they came in.
Also to my good friend PGA Professional Matt Turnock from Mottram Hall for running this event efficiently as always in my absence. My prize box is always returned immaculately organised due to his OCD !!!
Paul Fell’s team got off to a flying start with 3 out of the 4 players recording a 2 on the 1st hole but unfortunately they peaked too early and it was all downhill from there !!!
ON AN ADDITIONAL NOTE A CALLAWAY MAVERIK WEDGE HAS BEEN HANDED IN FROM THE PRESTBURY CHARITY DAY LAST WEEK – PLEASE MESSAGE ME IF THIS IS YOURS

Preston Golf Club this Monday -still room for 3 teams don’t miss out on this stunning course.
Results from phenomenal Prestbury
Charity Day at Prestbury Sponsored by Xentum Financial planners
Despite recent heavy rain the Prestbury Golf Course was presented in superb condition for our players today. Thanks to everyone for your terrific support of this event. We raised £3010. This has been divided equally and already paid to the East Cheshire Hospice, Unicef, Water Aid and On Course Foundation.
Despite not playing Jim Clarke and Steve Heywood also quietly made contributions to the charities- class.
Ben Baldwin from Xentum kindly treated all players to bacon butties and coffee. Thanks to everyone involved, they are a lovely company to have on board and I have no hesitation recommending them.
I love Prestbury and its members. My first job was as an assistant professional here when I was just 18 years old. I used to be in charge of shoe cleaning at this great club. Sales of plastic adidas cruiser shoes went through the roof when I realised that I could clean them in 10 seconds with a soapy wet cloth. I used to reassure the members that they were fully breathable and far comfier than the more expensive leather alternatives which took me ten minutes to polish.
The par three 17th over the ravine is the beautiful signature hole. Richard Palmer has duffed it off the tee here more than once over the years. He was delighted to see his tee shot sail onto the green today. Unfortunately, as he tried to put his seven iron back there was no sign of his trolley and clubs. He found them 5 minutes later at the bottom of the canyon.
Scoring was close with the best scores of the day recorded by teams that went out in the first hour this morning. Neale Laurent(14), Alf Shillitoe (17)Paul Butler(10) and John Harrop (7)scored 83 to take 2nd on a card play off.
Simon Hemsley (10) Gareth Bradley (+2) Joe Kirwan and Dave Woods from Bramhall recorded 84 points first thing and thought they may sneak into the prizes.
‘We played well but there is definitely a high 80’s score out there today!’ Reported experienced Hemsley.
No there wasn’t! The four lovely guys will be delighted to win the Xentum Charity Day! Well played.
Just eighty four points winning a Charity Day! Unheard of. Thanks to all players for your integrity, it is a pleasure to work for you.
Thanks for your support and for giving something back today. This is what life is all about. Brilliant.
