Thurdays event moved from Ringway to Dunham Forest 12pm shotgun

****Please note this event is now a 12pm Shotgun****

*Excellent food available before and after play*

Dear Maxitours player,

Unfortunately Ringway Golf Club who are always great to deal with have fairways flooded on holes 12 and 14 They are working this week which should resolve this drainage issue. We hope to reschedule the event to February or March.

After a few phone calls I have managed to move the event to Dunham Forest which as many of you are aware is in great condition. Thanks to PGA professional Paul Dennis for his help.

Here are the new starting tee spots. Times are moved back an hour to 12pm shotgun (starting tees may have changed from Ringway so please check)

No need to reply to this email UNLESS YOU ARE NO LONGER ABLE TO PLAY.

Many thanks and sorry for any inconvenience.

Yours in Golf, Tim

Maxitours at Marvellous Mottram

**Maxitours Summer schedule – Date change Romiley is Weds 27th May not Friday 29th May as advertised**

Maxitours at marvellous Mottram Hall

The wonderful Christmas weather continued and the mild conditions were enjoyed by over a hundred players at Mottram Hall today.

The front nine holes in particular are always very dry in the Winter but it was the quality of the greens which impressed our players:
‘That was superb for January -the greens were excellent!’ Reported Bramall stalwart Simon Hemsley.

I worked at Mottram Hall for fifteen years and have many happy memories of my time at the hotel complex. The England team stayed here in the 1990’s and Gazza and his mate ‘five bellies’ kept sneaking into the pro shop and paying me cash for his Mars bars as he didn’t want Bobby Robson seeing them appear on his room bill.

The website states that Mottram Hall welcome golfers of all abilities and they certainly got that today with two high quality plus 2 handicap players, Gareth Bradley and Chris Chilton and two talented scratch players Sam Wilson and Luke Bartram. We also had the likes of Jonny Barton and John Farnsworth playing- two nice guys who are very much at the other end of the golfing spectrum.

In todays event with breezy conditions and tees well back scoring was tough.
Darren Whittaker(14) is nicknamed Northern Rail because of his unacceptable performances over the past three years . Today the lovely Poynton man was back on form helping Brian Hopkins(6) team into 3rd place with 81 points. Steve Marsh(8) and Nigel Emmett(20) completed the team.

Wilmslow’s Paul Dalby(5), Barney Ross(4), Paul Sherlock(4) and Scott Mason(9) took 2nd place with 82 points. New Dad Scott enjoyed his day of freedom narrowly missing his birdie on the tough 13th hole. He wanted to stay for a couple of pints to celebrate but had to head back home early to change a nappy.

Sandiway’s Gary Neiles(7) took top spot alongside Alan Forber(16) John Morton(13) and Jimmy Norris(22) They played the front nine poorly but caught fire on the back nine to earn their first victory for six months. John Morton birdied his final hole -the tricky 17th to secure a great win. Excellent golf and a great start to the new year.

Thanks to everyone for your 100% attendance,

I hope you have a terrific year on the golf course,
Tim

Maxitours at wonderful Warrington

*Still spaces at Mottram Hall Thursday 2nd January- I played there last week and the greens are excellent.

*THE GREAT NEW MAXITOURS SUMMER SCHEDULE RELEASED THIS WEEK!!
Maxitours at wonderful Warrington

Warrington Golf Club was the latest superb venue for our Maxitours event. This free draining course is a very popular venue for our players and the greens were tremendous for December. The fairways were also firm and rolling incredibly well. Even Roy Ainsworth hit his drive well over one hundred and fifty yards on the downwind, downhill first hole.

The breakfast was excellent and plenty of players also enjoyed their post round drink in the Swish newly refurbished bar. Thanks to everyone at this friendly Club for hosting a great day.

The rain held off until 4pm so all players finished without getting wet.

‘That was wonderful. It was so dry out there my trousers and golf shoes are still immaculate!’ reported well-dressed Mike Spencer. Kev Hart never looks immaculate but even he couldn’t fault the excellent condition of the golf course. Kevin plays regularly but never wins a bean. He thought he may win a prize today after his team scored 82 points but just narrowly missed out. In a heart warming gesture reflecting the true spirit of Christmas I decided to extend the prize table and he wins a scorecard holder worth at least £4.50.

When he checks in each week chatty Richard Wakefield talks more even drivel to me than the average golfer. I found out today that he has a two-hour slot on GMR radio where he can happily talk his gobbledygook all day long about anything he wants and he doesn’t care who is listening. He scored an eagle on the par fourth 11th hole today. That should take up about an hour and a half of next weeks show.

I know Christmas is nearly here when intelligent Oxford zoology graduate Mick Mahon has his annual haircut and close shave. In the last event of decade he came in looking much smarter than normal with barely hair out of place. Unfortunately a strong wind whipped up late on in his round and he looked his normal bedraggled self as he handed in his team scorecard.

In todays event the scoring was excellent. Third place went to Richard Blackwell’s Mottram Hall team with 87 points. But they were pipped by the Ashton in Makerfield quartet of George Andrews(16) Jason Atherton(10) Damon Lawrenson(6) and Mark Delaney(22). They had an excellent 46 points on the back nine for their best finish of the season.

Taking the honours was Carden Parks Paul Fell (5) Nigel Ashton(13) Dave Cooper(18) Colin Bryan(9). These guys play each week but have had a barren four months. Fell has just returned from golfing in Dubai and his mid Winter practice paid off with some great golf today. Dave Cooper is normally hopeless but he played unusually well picking up six points for his team. Great golf chaps well played.

Brian Ankers tells me he is off to buy his wife a wooden leg for Christmas. ‘She asked me to buy her a nice stocking filler this year.’ Added the dry Lymm legend.

Finally, many thanks for your support this year. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year,

Tim, Suzy, Ella and James.

Maxitours at brilliant Vale Royal

*Spaces at Mottram Hall AM AM Thursday 2nd January – you know you will need to play golf to get some post-Christmas fresh air and de-stress

Maxitours at brilliant Vale Royal

Despite yesterday’s torrential deluge Vale Royal was well and truly open for today’s Maxitours event.

The course is built on sand and is a joy to play in Winter. Thanks to all the green staff for allowing us to play and for preparing the course to such a high standard. Those greens are a credit to you.

Firstly, apologies for playing off the White tees, the course was playing too long after the rain. I thought that only the white tees were out. We will be off the yellows when we return next month I promise!

Graham Harding came down from Buxton to play in Maxitours today and there was quite a thick frost on his car first thing this morning. He explained that they even have frost in July up there. He carefully cleared it away from his main windscreen using his credit card. Then he slowly scraped each window so he had a perfect view He then pressed his car key to get in and realised his car was parked further down the street. Things didn’t improve for the Derbyshire man on the golf course and it was his team who were frosty after he only contributed three times. He got out his credit card again in the bar.

Some chilly rain fell for an hour at Midday but fortunately things brightened up for everyone nicely in the afternoon. Knutsford nice guy Steve Foxcroft has a swing with more moving parts than a swiss watch. He found that wearing five layers, a daft bobble hat and a budget waterproof top severely restricted his movement. He played great with his new more efficient compact swing. He plans to wear three sweaters all Summer.

In today’s event Mellor and Townscliffe legend Chris Lee holed his 2nd shot on the 11th as he recorded two twos in his round today. The rest of his team were rubbish.

Scoring was excellent at the top end of the leader board. Jim Clarke is possibly the wealthiest man in Knutsford. He is definitely the most competitive. He led his team to a terrific 86 points and 3rd place. Abersoch’s Peter Ledger(19) did the damage today. Mark Hagarty(12) and Graham ‘the pie’ Jackson(8) also played great.

Lymm golf Club star Roger Percival(6) continued his good form alongside Ed Wilkinson(6) Martin France(2) and Josh Brand(4). Roger had four gross birdies on the back nine to seal second place on the card play-off.

Jim Caldwell is definitey the wealthiest man in Wilmslow. He can also play a bit of golf when he wants to. His team of Don Bailey(12) Steve Barlow (5) and Andrew Aherne(16) rolled in far more than their fair share of putts on the true surfaces to take first place. Well played chaps great scoring!

Thanks again for your continued integrity and 100% attendance.
One more event before Christmas!

Yours in Golf, Tim

Maxitours at reallly Superb Stockport

Space now available at terrific Vale Royal next Wednesday!!

Maxitours at superb Stockport

A great day was enjoyed by all at Stockport today. The course was in really superb condition. Many thanks to the green keeping team for doing such a brilliant job. I had plenty of positive comments as players finished their rounds:

‘That was incredible. the course was great- peak condition for December!’ Reported Lancaster’s delighted Peter Griggs.

‘Wow, their green keeper has done a fantastic job!’ Declared Ian Hellens.

Great catering and friendly staff are also a trademark of this premier Cheshire venue.-Thank you.

Thanks also to all players for your excellent speed of play withal groups getting around in just over 4 hours. Even Trevor Greening was around in good time and his team mates tell me that he is so slow he has to carry his golf clubs in a sleeping bag.

Eighteen handicapper John Atkin is a good looking, superb golfer with a classic and simple swing that is the envy of many. He has the touch of an angel. Last week the lovely Knutsford man accused me of ‘Stretching the truth’ with my post-match weather report as he played most of his morning round in the rain and I mentioned in the report what a lovely late afternoon it was…..
Very sorry John I always try to ensure everything in my report is 100% accurate.

I mentioned a few weeks ago about intelligent Roger Percival bulking up for the winter to keep him warm whilst playing in Maxitours events. He has been shedding his weight a little recently and is now only a couple of stone over his recommended weight. He recorded nearest the pin on the 16th and also had a couple of twos – well played Roger.

Neil Edwards(7) and his Ashton in Makerfield team enjoyed the fast and true Stockport greens and they took 3rd place with an impressive 85 points. House wife favourite Ste Woods(17) Adie Price(12) and Jimmy McEwan(7) completed the likeable team.

Ex Blackburn and England footballer Matt Jansen(10) and Warren Newton(10) fancied a game yesterday and they were paired up with Craig Dyson(5) and Sam Wilson(scr) who were struggling to find four players. They met each other on the tee of their first hole which was the toughest par three in Cheshire- Stockports 8th. Sam knocked in a classy birdie to get the team off to a great start and they all played great for the following 17 holes. Even Warren had back to back birdies on the 4th and 5th to keep things ticking along nicely.

Andy Buckley(9) from Sandbach couldn’t believe his luck when I teamed him up with Paul Dalby’s (6)high class Wilmslow team today. They had also never met before but had great Chemistry picking up 10 gross birdies along the way. Barney Ross(5) and Matt Birch (2) made up the talented quartet.
