Maxitours at wonderful Warrington
The Warrington fairways were freshly mowed, the greens were hand cut and the bunkers all expertly raked as the golf course was prepared to a tournament standard for our players today.
Ben Goodchild and his team of seven green keepers do an incredible job and their reputation is spreading throughout the North West. The course and greens were ‘utterly magnificent’. It is mid February!! You should be so proud.
‘Best greens this year!’ Declared Jim Cox.
‘That course is in great nick, the Warrington members are lucky to have a course presented so well’ Reported Martin Quinn.
‘That was in great condition and dry as a bone’ Said Orthopedic surgeon Steve Norris who isn’t very good at golf but knows a thing or two about bones.
Matt in the kitchen and bar manager Jess always ensure the bacon sandwiches are of the highest standard and served quickly and with a smile. Thanks so much.
It went a bit gloomy in the middle of the day as a weather front passed over but the last two hours of play saw the golfers bathed in glorious sunshine. Mark Saxon’s limited wardrobe means he wears the same sweater most weeks but he actually took it off for the first time this year as the temperatures rose.
Club Manager Max is always forward thinking and he is offering a free 4 ball to best picture and course comments posted on the Warrington golf club facebook or Instagram page by our players today. If you have any pictures please post them.
I have got tennis elbow at the moment so shaking hands with 110 golfers on a Wednesday morning isn’t ideal so please forgive the ‘Americanised’ fist pump I have been employing recently. Peter Tomkins loves a hand shake and his extremely warm welcome this morning has set my rehabilitation back about three months.
Luke Russell spends a lot of time in the gym and has thighs and arms like tree trunks. Occasionally he can really hit a golf ball. After his round you may have heard him in the bar telling the barmaid and basically everyone he could find that he drove the 320 yard 7th hole. Unfortunately, his playing partners confirmed that his ball was on the fringe just short of the green. Get back in the gym Luke.
The likeable Saddleworth quartet of Billy Coleman, Pete Norbury, Dave Rhodes and Dave Sarsfield took 3rd will 85 points, narrowly beaten by Andy Hamlett, Steve Austin (the 70 year old bionic golfer), Gary Smith and Richard Blackwell. Both teams scored 85 points.
Winning today was the ever present Neale Laurent(14) team with Paul Butler(8), John Harrop(8) and Gareth Winston(5) all contributing well. Ex copper Neale and his pals are a great bunch of lads and were delighted to win today. Excellent golf.
Thanks for your 100% attendance, See you on Monday at Stockport.
