Maxitours at pristine Prestatyn

Prestatyn was in great condition for today’s event. The greens were possibly the fastest we have played on this Winter/Spring and they were rolling superbly. Prestatyn is a really natural links course and has a rugged beauty. I love it here.
The back nine has a stretch of four tough holes to finish followed by a birdieable 18th hole. It’s a great challenge.

‘I’m seriously impressed!’ Reported retired pharmacist Richard Wakefield. ‘This place is now a premier golf course and should definitely be on the Maxitours rota!’
We are already booked in for next year Richard.

John Bradbury is a lovely boke but he had a bad day. His team narrowly missed out on a prize with a 7th place finish. He also lost his car keys. His loving wife had to drive over to Prestatyn from Heyrose to give him his spare set. I bet that went down well. If that was not enough as I was setting off home the pro collared me- ‘Any idea who has left his clubs on the buggy?’
Yep I know just the man……

If John Bradbury had a bad day Keith Shale had a cracker. I have never seen a man so happy to be reunited with his golf mat. He left it at last weeks event but thought it was gone forever.
‘Wow that’s a miracle!’ He declared when I gave it to him after it was handed in.
His team finished 4th and Shale made a crucial par on the last. Another miracle. Well played Keith.

Third place went to the Hazel Grove barrister Simon Ashton(7), Mick Jones(8), Iain Cole(5) and Mark Cookson(5).

Taking second was Sandiways Gary Neiles(5), Richard Melrose(5), Gavin Connor(8)and Paul Hurst(11) with a terrific 83 points, Neiles was one over par and credited a recent putting lesson for his improved form.
Winning again was Wilmslows in form Jim Caldwell(6) who won for a second consecutive week despite a handicap cut. They were out in the toughest conditions and recorded an exceptional 85 points. Lee Charnley(5) Don Bailey(7) and Andrew Aherne(9) were his on form team mates. Well played chaps.
