Maxitours at beautiful Bramhall

Bramhall golf club looked in terrific condition as I drove through the entrance gates morning. From the clubhouse you look across a sea of stunning greenery, it is hard to believe you are just a couple of miles from the centre of Stockport.

Everyone at this great Club made us feel very welcome – Damon and his bar staff are probably the most professional and friendliest bunch I deal with all year – they really are something special.

The golf course is a favourite of mine and is also pretty special.

‘What a lovely course!’ Declared Fixby’s Mike Dempsey.

‘That was in great nick.’ Announced Alsager’s Colin Roberts.

‘That was absolutely brilliant out there!’ Was Graham Wrights assessment.


It was also lovely to get a comment at the end of a long day from a respected Bramhall member -Dave Crossgrove. He came to my desk after playing behind the last group reporting that he hasn’t seen a single pitch mark all day – thanks to all my Maxitours players your respect makes my job so easy and enjoyable.

Bramall is such a nice Club even their respected Captain Peter Thompson played today and to make all our players feel good about themselves he decided to finish last – what a lovely gesture, class.

Seventy year old Roy Ainsworth is no stranger to finding trouble on the golf course but today he reached a new low when he found trouble even before he teed off. His buggy got stuck on the way to the first tee and he needed assistance to help him make his tee time.

Scoring was tough on the well-designed Bramhall links. Firm and very fast greens meant putting was difficult.

Lancastrian Mick Mahan(18) and his team of Munro Donald(14), John Farnsworth(19) and Andy Faulkner(12) are lovely guys and they travel from north Blackburn to play each week. John Farnsworths golf has taken off since his wife sacked him from working behind the counter at their family run butchers shop. Apparently, John was too grumpy. He was in a good mood today after some great play saw a third place finish.

Rhodri Giggs took time off from making his ‘paddy power’ adverts to focus on his golf and the talented 6 handicapper scored well for his team as they took 2nd place . Colin Tichias((13), Mark Foley(7) and Karl Marginson(8) made up the Davyhulme quartet .

Leading the way was the home team of Les Russon(10) , Rob Kenyon(14), Steve Merricks(5) and Mike Priestley(15). Rob Kenyon actually believes he is a good golfer now and his performances in the last two months have been at an all-time high. He recorded six three pointers in a solid round of golf. The team scored 88 points to win by 4 shots. Brilliant golf.

Thanks to everyone for your support today, Tim.
