Maxitours at fabulous Fairhaven

Maxitours players enjoyed a glorious day at Fairhaven Golf Club.
There was not a breath of wind and the players made the most of the firm, fast running fairways and immaculate greens.
The weather was mild and it was lovely to load my car up this morning in daylight- Spring and longer warmer golfing days are not too far away now.

Here is the link to photos from our long weekend in the Algarve, including the presentation dinner in the five star Bovino steak restaurant.
Sixteen of this years team have already rebooked. Thanks so much to everyone who contacted me since the trip:

‘A top class few days in the Portugal Sunshine with a great group of Maxitour players. Professionally run by Tim and Julie . Thanks you and roll on next year!’
Chris Adams Captain Elect Prestbury GC

‘Thanks Tim for a great week. Amazing golf courses, superb organisation from you, Julie & the team. Presentation dinner at one of Portugal’s finest restaurants topped off a great few days for our mixed team.’ Steve Heywood Hopwood GC Captain

‘A great trip from start to finish, well organized even down to having bottled water for the teams.
We travel and play in many events and the atmosphere between the teams was second to none and easy to see why people come back year after year.’ Steve Moores Stamford GC

‘The Maxitours Portugal golf trip is a brilliantly organised event

It is attended by a fantastic group of like minded people – who are all there to enjoy themselves- we definitely enjoyed ourselves

We have already reserved a place on next years trip!’
Giles Terry Mere GC Ex- Captain

‘Hi Tim

We are relaxing at the Magnolia Hotel today reflecting on a brilliant 4 day Maxitours event .

Peter, Mike and Phil join me in thanking you and your team for the wonderful time we had.

The arrangements were superb as were the 3 golf courses we played. We met so many delightful and interesting ‘Maxitourists’ during our stay.

These events take a great deal of planning and we all appreciated the immense work of you, Julie and Claire to make it such an enjoyable trip for us.

The Gala Dinner last night at the Bovino was a memorable experience with great food and atmosphere.

Thank you for all the fantastic work you put in to make it so special for us.’

Best wishes

Jim Rymer, Heswall GC

‘What a great week, well as much as I remember!!
Brilliantly organised, great company and superb courses. All overlooked with aplomb and a smile.
Get us down for next year!’
Mick Mahon Myton Fold GC

In todays event Dave Rhodes was choking on his beer in the Clubhouse after he missed a 10 inch putt at the last. His team finished in 3rd place.
The Ashton in Makerfield team took 2nd with a solid 88 points but it was the veteran Birchwood team of Graham Wilkinson(6), John Fitzsimmons(7), Ken Booth(10) and Alan Simpson (12)who took first place with a cracking 90 point haul. Well played chaps. First win for quite a while for this popular quartet.

Thanks to everyone for your support, Tim
