Maxitours at lovely Leigh
Perfect weather and an immaculate golf course greeted Maxitours players at Leigh this morning.
The course is really enjoyable to play with plenty of interesting short holes and then it bites back with five tough closing holes. The fairways and greens were blemish free and really blooming after the weekend downfalls.
‘That golf course was incredible!’ Declared Saddleworths Dave Sarsfield.
.’It is so well presented.’
The day started badly when I loaned my glasses to ‘wide headed’ Neale Laurent so he could check handicaps on his phone. They will never be the same again. Things improved when I saw the crisp selection behind the bar. There are a maxitours record 12 varieties on offer. Wotsits and monster munch were the biggest sellers today but it was Dave English who was quavering as he missed his 18 inch put for a two on the15th.
Scoring was very close with John Longworth(11), Paul Hurst(11), John Morton (11) and Gary Neiles(4) from Sandiway taking third on 86 points.
Wilmslows Jim Caldwell(8)Peter Griggs(11) Dave Thomas (14) and Dan McIntyre(11) took 2nd. A terrific birdie at the last from Dan was crucial as they recorded 87 points.
Winning on a back nine card play off was Knutsford father and son Jim (9) and Chris(6) Clark, Graham Jackson(11) and Pete Ledger(16). Chris was the main man as he played the first eight holes three under par. A solid 43 points on the back nine was good enough to secure the win. Well played chaps.
Thanks to everyone for your support today.
