Spaces for teams or 1 or 2 players in the Cheshire Classic at Prestbury and Mottram Hall next week!!!!!!
I visited Prestbury last week and the course was class!!
Maxitours at fabulous Formby Hall
Glorious blue skies and a lovely sea breeze were the rewards for well over 100 Maxitours competitors who travelled to the Merseyside coast today.
Formby Hall was described as ‘magnificent’ by more than a few players today. I have to say that the greens and surrounds looked excellent.
The course is a true championship venue and has hosted a number of professional events. I played in a challenge tour event here in 1998 when a fresh-faced Justin Rose narrowly pipped me by 24 shots.
Thanks to Leighton Williams and all the team. The food in the clubhouse was excellent.
The only issue with today’s event was the price of fuel. The local Tesco’s was over £1.79 a litre making Formby the only place in Britain more expensive than Knutsford.
If you had a bad round today try and remember that things could be a lot worse -you could be going to Goodison with the Jim Rymer team for example. They didn’t look too confident as they headed to Everton to watch their favourite team take on Newcastle. Lambs to the slaughter.
Dave Haycocks was all over the place today. They call him the major because he plays military golf – left, right,left, right. He hit his approach shot into room 116 as he played the 18th.
Highlight of the day was seeing John Dickenson after his recent illness. Great to see him looking so well -he will be back playing very soon.
The wind dropped a little late in the day and scoring improved noticeably.
Sandiways Gary Neiles and his Cheshire set took 4th place with 83 points.
Dave Goodwin (who is famous for only smiling when he has wind) was once again looking less miserable than normal as his team took 3rd place. Brothers Ian and Dave Snape and Dave Greenwood completed the team.
Second place went to Denton’s Tony Grinnell, Alistair Holloway, Knutsford’s Tony Taylor and Formby Hall’s Phil Woolem. The team were assembled at the last minute and they all gelled wonderfully.
First place went to the popular figure of Martin Humphries(8). He teamed up with fellow Dean Wood members Paul Webb(20), Andy Haswell(plus 3) and the most successful female in Maxitours history- Joyce ‘pocket rocket’Larkin (17). Despite dropping a shot into the wind at the last they won by a single point with a great score of 86.
Great golf, well played!
Thanks to everyone for your 100% attendance.
