fantastic Formby Hall results

Maxitours at fabulous Formby Hall

The Winter/Spring tour enjoyed wonderful golfing weather at Formby Hall today. Superb greens, gentle sea breeze, an incredibly dry course and clear blue skies were the reward for players who travelled to Merseyside.

The course was terrific and really well drained considering the amount of rain we have had in recent weeks.

Its always interesting to come to the Formby Hall hotel and spa venue near Liverpool. I sit in the main corridor and watch a few residents walking past. There are lots of pumped-up lips and false tans knocking about throughout the day. And that was only Ian Kings team.

Jim Caldwell and Bob Eastwoods team both scored 85 points. Bobs team was on fire with a wonderful 47 points on the front nine, their slow finish saw Jim’s team winning the card play-off.

Ex Copper Neale Laurent, Martyn Schofield, Jack Schofield and John Harrop took 4th with 86 points. Another retired copper on a huge pension took 3rd place. Dave Blood from Romiley and his good pals Jimmy Cox, Ian Smith and Mike Grainger had a terrific back nine picking up 8 points on the long 14th to take 2nd on 87 points

Sandiways Gary Neiles and his team of Russell Sollitt, John Longworth and Alan Giles scored 88 points. They picked up seven points on the lovely 17th hole to elevate themselves into 2nd.

Winning today was the softly spoken Davyhulme team of Kev Hart(11), Paul Yearsley(9), Sam Garnett(1) and Alan Vaughan(9). Sam is a class player and has found some good form recently. He shot six under to help his Maxitours ever present team to a first win for nearly a year. Well played chaps. Great golf.

Thanks to everyone for your support. Tim
