Maxitours at wonderful Knutsford Golf Club
Maxitours players had a real treat at Knutsford Golf Club today.
The greens were cut and ironed and were rolling fast and true.
‘I’ve never seen the greens this good and this quick.’ Reported Cheshire Senior player Martin France.
‘The course was terrific!’ Added Pete Atherton ‘If this was 18 holes it would be the best course in Cheshire.’
‘Wow, we loved that. A really easy walk in beautiful surroundings. You are lucky to be the pro here.’ Declared Dave Sarsfield. Correct Dave.
Thanks to Dave Jones and his talented team.
Clubhouse manager Steve Barker also runs a tight ship and we were looked after royally throughout the day by my colleagues at the Club. Thanks so much everyone.
All players receive a doughnut half way around. Phil Long looked like he had been hit by a thunderbolt. ‘That is the first custard doughnut I ever had. It was incredible. Over sixty years of jam and now I have discovered custard. Incredible!’ He also had an excellent 4th place to seal a wonderful day.
Richard Palmer owns lots of rare sheep and he always misses March and early April due to the lambing season. He was back on form today taking 3rd with 40 points.
Big Dave Buckley is the steward at Antrobus and he thought he had pulled off a terrific victory with 42 points. The popular 18 handicapper is always first to the bar when he is not serving behind it and was all 4’s and 5’s on his card on the front nine.
Winning today was Heyrose’s Paul Salt. ‘Salty’ has won nothing this year despite entering a team most weeks but he ‘had a day out’ today. He looked embarrassed in the clubhouse but is one of lifes gentlemen and his playing partners were full of admiration. 25 points on the front nine was followed by 21 on the back.
‘It was just one of those days.’ Explained the softly spoken six footer.
Thanks to everyone for your support this Winter/Spring.
