Maxitours at wonderful Warrington
Warrington Golf Club just keeps getting better and better. The greens today were incredible and made putting a real pleasure for everyone. I even saw Pete Myers roll in a six-footer on the 18th.
I don’t think I have ever had as many golfers tell me that ‘Those greens were magnificent!’
The catering staff are also at the top of their game, the steak pie and chips and bacon butties on sale throughout the day were delicious. Angie who looked after us is certainly not the quietest lady I have ever met but her hospitality and customer service were outstanding. New highly rated General Manager Max Sullivan must be very proud of all his staff today and the condition of his golf course.
The course is located right in the heart of the Cheshire plain but bizarrely sits on top of a large hill so that the views over Manchester and Liverpool are incredible. The elevated 7th tee is just about the highest point in Warrington but the highest object in Warrington today was Dave Francis’ golf ball after he skied his tee shot ‘going for a big one.’ It came down with snow on it. Simon Pouchers’ golf ball late in the day possibly went even higher after a hungry crow flew off with it as he played the 18th hole.
Team manager Steve Marsh plays most weeks but was unavailable today. Unlike Manchester United his team performed even worse in his absence finishing in a lowly 18th.
Sam Leach had a great score of 85 points to take 3rd place on a card play-off. Jim Hodges(3) Chris Walley(11) and John Mather(8) were in his team. Likeable Sam was on fire and birdied both the tough 2nd and 5th holes. Even Jim Hodges rolled in three birdies to help his team gain a podium finish.
Paul Fell’s (5) Carden Park team of Colin Bryan(8), Ian Venables(16) and Wrexham’s Mike Lowe(8) were terrific today and were all delighted with their haul of 87 points but it was beaten on the back nine by the Saddleworth quartet of Lee Tilley(9), Dave Rhodes(13), Dave Sarsfield(17) and ex Wigan rugby league Chairman Pete Norbury(18). These lads started on the 11th and picked up 7 points on their closing hole after Peter made a quality birdie under immense pressure.
Well played chaps.
Thanks to everyone for your attendance.
Brilliant. Thanks Tim.
