Maxitours at Mottram Hall

Maxitours at marvellous Mottram Hall

The warm Autumn weather continued to bless Maxitours players at Mottram Hall today.
The greens here are always superb in the winter and the front nine holes are among the driest in Cheshire. The green keeper prepared the course magnificently and his team have kindly been leaf blowing for the last three days to help us get round without too much ball searching.
‘I’ve played here on and off over the last thirty years but I have to say those greens are the best they have ever been. Mint!’ Declared Dave Blood.

I really enjoyed working here for 15 years before taking up my role at Knutsford Golf Club in 2006. The members were great with me and I will always appreciate their support when I was trying to play full time. It was also great for a young lad to work in a busy golf club with plenty going on. My favourite moment was when I was cashing up one evening and Norman Wisdom walked in the shop and pretended to trip over one of the golf bags to make me smile. Classic.

Romantic John Farnsworth was moaning about the Christmas trees on display in the clubhouse in NOVEMBER. I asked him if he would be buying his best friends and team mates a Christmas present this year. ‘I won’t be buying my wife a present, never mind this lot.’

Gary Owen and his Denton team took 3rd place with 82 points, Jim Clarke and his team continued their revival with 2nd place on 83 points. They were narrowly beaten by a better back nine from home players Richard Blackwell, John Hilton. Tony Jennison and Chris Marshall.
Well played everyone I hope you had a great day. (I’m off to a parents evening so report slightly shortened)
