Maxitours at special Stockport

Bramhall Golf Club Monday 22nd Aug – room for one team

Maxitours at special Stockport

The final day of the midsummer heatwave saw Maxitours visit possibly the best course in Cheshire.

There were great reports from my players throughout the day. This is such a fair golf course and a real pleasure to play. The membership and staff are incredibly friendly and make us feel very welcome indeed. Thanks to everyone at this great Club.

The course is improving year on year and the catering was once again of the very highest standard.

The forecast was for possible thunderstorms so everyone was delighted to get around without being struck by lightning.

Chris Lee really doesn’t like thunder and he was very concerned when he heard an ominous rumble in the distance as he prepared to tee off on the 10th . He was delighted to realize it was team mate Richard Wakefield digesting his half time sausage roll.

Russ Sollitt has struggled a little with his putting in recent months. He makes Marcus Rashford look like he is oozing with confidence. Today Sollitt rolled back the years and had a great day on the greens to help his team into 8th place.

Three teams scored 88 points. The intelligent Doctors team of James and Alison Shipstone, John Hunt and Denis O’Neill were delighted with 88 points despite dropping a shot at the last. The far less intelligent John Newton team from Dunham Forest with Jon Walker, Trevor Roberts and David Linton had a tremendous back nine to sneak the card play off. They were delighted to take second place.

Late in the day Nigel Uttley from Heyrose also scored 88 points but had to settle for fourth place on the card play off.

The Hazel Grove team of Andrew Hill(1), Dave Stewardson(10), Steve Mobley(11) and Callaway rep Tom Gradwell(2) took the honours with 90 points. Gradwell is also a member at Stockport and he used his local knowledge well. Andrew Hill is a class act and has played for Cheshire at every level. He is knocking at the door to get back in the senior team. Great golf guys.

Thanks to everyone for your 100% attendance once again. What a great day.

  1. Hi Tim, long time no see! Is the space at Bramhall still free. If yes, I’ll take it with a team from Tythy. Cheers
