Maxitours at tremendous Vale Royal

Another stunning day was enjoyed by Maxitours players at Vale Royal. The course really is superb and is always a huge favourite with my guys.
‘We love it around here. It is a terrific golf course!’ Announced well travelled John Hollingworth.
‘ Those greens were excellent. The greenkeeper put the pins in some tough spots. It was a fantastic test,’ Reported John Dickenson.

In todays event 3rd place went to Steve Aspinall’s Birchwood team who had 45 on the back nine to pip Chris Adams Prestbury men and Richard Blackwells Mottram team.

Taking second place was Garry Owens’(10) Denton team who went out in a brilliant 47 points but they stalled a little and could only manage 39 points on the back nine. Mark Bone(11) Lewis Ramsden (14) and Alistair Holloway (13) were his partners.

Winning today also with a great score of 86 points was the Sale Golf Club team of Simon Poucher(12), David Carlile(18) Neil Simpson(14) and Brendan Leighton(17)

These guys were hanging on to Leightons coat tails as he had the round of his life, picking up seven shots for his team including a chip in on the 16th .

Well played chaps.

There is also a two day event with about 10 teams participating on both days – so tomorrows report will be longer. All prizes won for individual days and the 2 day event will be published tomorrow..

Many thanks for your support, Tim.

Maxitours at delightful Davyhulme

Another great days’ golf was enjoyed by Maxitours players at Davyhulme Park.

What a great golf course this is. Once again there were numerous happy golfers who were begging me to return to this classic parkland course next year.

The clubhouse is stunning and PGA Professional Martyn Hamer is a superb asset to Davyhulme – he couldn’t be more helpful – a brilliant credit to his profession.

I have just returned from a family holiday in Norfolk where there is a drought and the courses are burning up -Davyhulme looked like a green golfing paradise in comparison. We are so lucky to have all this rain.
‘I’ve not played here before but that is great layout -in immaculate condition- I loved it! ’ Announced Charlie Kingston.

Looking at the scorecards I’ve never seen so many teams start as badly. The first hole at Davyhulme is a narrow par three and well over half the teams dropped shots. Eight teams dropped two shots.
It didn’t bother Simon Raine as his team was one of only two to pick up a shot on the hole. All he could talk about was his eagle at the last however. ‘My second into the last was the greatest shot I have ever hit.’ The other 16 holes were average as they finished in the middle of the pack.

It was great to see Mike Verdon back in action today – he is a top bloke 👍and looked great.

Jim Clarke’s team has had a very quiet Summer by their high standards but today they were back playing some excellent golf. It is always lovely to see a young girl on the golf course and Jims daughter Georgi followed up a win at Knutsford yesterday with some great golf today. She is miles better than her Dad. They finished in 4th place.

Gary Neiles(6) Sandiway team scored 46 points on their back nine to sneak into third place. Joe Yates(9) made a great birdie on the 13th to give the team a boost. Son Paul(9) and John Longworth (13) made up the team.

School teacher Danny Holbrook(18) and his Ashton on Mersey team took second with 90 points. Holbrook has barely done a days work in the last six months and he made the most of his ‘holiday’ time to improve his golf. Gabriel Bagshaw(3) recorded two 2’s in the space of three holes – the most impressive being his eagle on the par 4 seventh hole. Joe Denman(7) and Haydn Parry(5) also played great golf.

Winning today was the Sandbach team of Mark Buckley(9) playing with his son and new father himself Andy (8) Don Phillips (12) and Ian Pezell(10). Andy and Don both birdied the index 1 hole to secure 8 points and a one shot victory . Well played lads great golf.

Thanks to all who played and for your 100% attendance. Tim

Results from ridiculously good Romiley

Romiley was the latest superb Golf Club to host a Maxitours event . I don’t think I have ever had as many golfers tell me that they had such a great day.
‘I really enjoyed that! ’Reported Alan Leigh.
‘That is superb- sign me up for next year!’ Begged Jack Coleman.
‘That is one of the best courses I have played for a long time’. Dale Wallace beamed.
‘What a beautiful course!’ Praised six handicapper Paul Browne ‘I never knew Romiley was this good,,those greens were also rolling brilliantly.’

This is a lovely place to play golf. The course layout is clever and the course is always excellent in the Summer months. Many thanks Romiley, we will be back by popular demand next year!

Thanks to all the catering staff, especially the long haired Barman who did the late shift. He pumped up the clubhouse music with some 70’s classics to liven me up at the end of the day.

Donna Sully’s team witnessed a miracle when she managed to hit a magpie on the head with her tee shot on the 8th fairway. I asked her if it survived and she said that it was fine and just flew away. Either Magpies are tough around here or she uses a very soft compression golf ball or she doesn’t hit it hard enough. You decide.

Jack Colemans team are lovely guys but they are right up there with the worst teams ever to compete in Maxitours events. They were overjoyed to record 72 points today. I have never seen four average golfers look so happy.

In today’s event three teams scored 82 points to share second place and they all scored 39 on the front nine and 43 on the slightly easier closing nine!

Losing the back six play off was Jim Clarke (11) Chris Clarke (12) Cameron Isherwood (5) and Pete Ledger (18) .This competitive team has had a very quiet few months by their high standards but they were getting back to their best today.

Bob Pickthalls(15) team Birchwood finished 3rd Rob Roden(13) Dave Thomas(18) and Steve Lamont(8) all played well for a change.

The Denton team of Garry Owen (10) Alistair Holloway (13) Mark Bone (11) and Steven Yeadon (11) won the card play off thanks mainly to the seven points they picked up on the tough 16th hole. Excellent.

Taking 1st place was Stockport Golf Clubs Jonny Lord (15) and Sun tanned Swinton primary school teacher Jonny Noblet (6) they teamed up with Rhos on Sea’s Alex Jarman (6) and Ed Stubbs (18).
This was the XENTUM sponsors team who do a great job supporting our order of merit and the team had never played with each other before – they all contributed well to win by an impressive 5 shots.

Great golf guys – everyone goes home happy when the sponsor team wins !

Many thanks for your 100% attendance. Incredible.

Yours in Golf,

Maxitours at High Class Hopwood

Maxitours visited Manchester Golf Club (Hopwood) today.
The course has improved magnificently in recent years and there was no sign of that trend stopping with so many positive reports from my players throughout the day.

‘The Greens are absolutely fantastic.’ Announced Dave Horsley.
Affluent Simon Burgess from Macclesfield thinks this is his favourite course in the North and Paul Woodbine who is an expert at everything to do with golf thinks that: ‘Hopwood is the finest test of golf in Manchester’.

Catering manager Steve Flett and his safe staff did a brilliant job as usual.

Richard Blackwell nearly hit one of the twelve deer that reside in the wood to the left of the 14th hole. These beautiful beasts are shy creatures and stay in the deep undergrowth so they live peacefully and are rarely disturbed. They were startled by the lack of accuracy shown by the Mottram man.

The new government rules stipulate they face masks are to be worn in shops next week but a few players today were asking where you can buy them from.
‘You can borrow Graham Jackson’s bandit mask – he’s got a few of them spare in his golf bag’ Chuckled his team mate Mark Hagerty.

In my events players are photographing any shots which are close to the pin as markers are not put out for sanitary reasons at the moment.
Steve Hall is an optimist and he needed to choose wide angled landscape on his phone to fit his ball and flag on the same photograph.
He was 12 yards away and the green is only 13 yards wide.
You were only beaten by about half the field Steve – very unlucky.

In today’s event there were 8 teams in the lead on 82 points before a flurry of excellent scoring in the middle of the day as the wind completely dropped. Bramall’s Les Russon(11) Steve Rosier(16) Ken Clarke(16) and Paul Carroll (16) took 3rd with 87 points
Swinton Parks Paul Verdon(7) Andy Mansfield(18) Jay Smethurst(11) and Mike Davies(24) matched that score with a better back nine to finish second.

Leading the way today was the on-form Lymm team of Martin France(2) Ed Wilkinson(5) Roger Percival(5) and Pete Atherton(11). Despite a handicap reduction after a recent win this likeable foursome got off to a great start with Percival playing the first three holes three under par. A strong back nine saw them collect 88 points and moved them to the top of the XENTUM order of merit

Well played chaps great score

Thanks again everyone for your 100% attendance. What a great day.
