Welsh classic final day results

*Room for 1 team or 2 players (with charismatic John Hilditch) next week at Hazel Grove- room for 1 team at Bromborough Weds 22nd June

Maxitours at beautiful North Wales
The best day of the year greeted Maxitours players at the superb North Wales golf course.
The gentlest of breezes, blue skies and a very playable golf course led to some excellent scoring throughout the day.

The staff at North Wales are the best in the business. Jamie behind the bar is excellent and loved by his membership. His Dad Richard runs the pro shop and is also a class act admired by his fellow professionals. Secretary Phil Beard is one of the nicest men in golf. Thanks everyone.

Richard Harper is scared of seagulls. Before play he was having a drink on the patio when a seagull actually landed on a fellow maxitours players head. He nearly drove home and had to be persuaded to play to support the team. They thought he had gone home on the front nine but eventually calmed down enough on the 11th hole to finally get on the card.

The view from the clubhouse is amazing and the 14th tee is within touching distance so it is fascinating to watch the different swings on show. One unnamed player had a particularly wild swing and nearly threw himself off his feet.
‘Good job he’s got a stiff shaft or he could have strangled himself.’ Observed Stuart Hibbert.

Someone asked me if there really was a team in the name of Paul Evans who recorded unbelievably bad scores of 63, 66 to finish last by 20 shots. They thought that it may have been an imaginary score invented by me to make everyone else feel better. I can assure you that it is a real team and they were trying their hardest.
Last year we had a hole in one on the 16th and Roger Percival matched that feat today – brilliant.
After a vote of no confidence last night from his disgruntled team Dave Griffiths had the mother of all comebacks and led his team into 3rd place today. The transformation into a golfer was quite remarkable.

Winning today’s event with a terrific 89 points was Gareth Winston’s Dukinfield team.

They all played great golf especially over the closing holes where they had four gross birdies on the 15th and 16th holes to really make their move. Well played guys – quality golf.

In the overall event the ‘wealthyish’ Prestbury team led by John Owen who took third place after a solid 87 points.

The British Olympic Taekwondo coaches from Denton golf club took 2nd place after adding an 89 to their opening 85.

It was Kevin Harts’ team who hung on to top place. They have had 4 months in the wilderness without winning a bean but were on fire this week to take a popular victory. Well played chaps.

Thanks to everyone for your tremendous support- It looked like everyone had a great two days by the coast.
Thanks very much,
Tim

Maxitours at classy Conwy

*Please check tomorrows times below which may have changed by a few minutes.

First day of the Welsh Classic

Perfect golfing conditions greeted the full field of Maxitours competitors at Conwy today. A championship standard golf course with superbly rolling fairways and receptive greens ensured a great day would be had by all.

What a great course!

Conwy is used as a training base for a few national teams and at 8am this morning the Switzerland national girls team teed off in front of our players. Graham Kershaw couldn’t believe how simple and effortless the swings were. Graham was fascinated especially as he is regularly told that his own swing has more moving parts a Swiss watch.

Conwy is a class venue and they even hand out a little sheet with pin positions on. Stuart Hibbert hits about three greens in regulation a year so he decided to help the environment by saving paper and declined the sheet.

Boris Johnson might get just away with his ‘confidence vote’ from members of parliament tonight. Dave Griffiths is definitely in trouble though as the members of his team tonight are definitely voting no confidence in their man after his poor showing today.

The only time Paul Robinson has ever hit the pin was when he wasn’t looking where he was going on the putting green and walked into it a few weeks ago. Today he had an outer body experience and played some terrific golf. He nearly holed his tee shot on the 15th and the flagstick kept it out. He did make a great two to add to the one he made on the 13th – excellent golf Paul, well done.

A gentle breeze meant the course was playing as easily as you could imagine however Conwy is never easy.

There were three teams from Prestbury playing today and John Owens team- the least wealthy of the three are lying in 3rd with 84 points alongside Dukinfields Neale Laurent and his team.

Dentons Gary Owen and his team lie in 2nd with 85 points but leading the way in the two-day event is Kevin Hart and his Davyhulme team who scored a tremendous 48 on the tough front nine before battling home in 40 points.

A big Monday night out in Llandudno has scuppered many a teams’ chances over the past few years and these lads know how to enjoy themselves…

Have a great night guys.

Tim

Pro tip of the day: stay away from Wetherspoons

Maxitours at delightful Davyhulme

An early morning rain storm delayed the start at Davyhulme but once play was underway the golf course was enjoyed by all. The greens were superb and this golf course is a real pleasure to play.

‘I look forward to playing here all year!’ Announced Maxitours regular Martin Humphries ‘It is the most enjoyable course we play all year, great holes, always in great condition and a very easy walk as well.’

Unlucky Jim Lindsay is a lovely bloke but his team struggled all day and finished in last place. To sum it all up he hit his best shot of the day on the 12th hole only to see a crow pick it up and fly away to a nearby tree. The crow actually pecked at his two playing partners balls before deciding that Jim’s ball was the tastiest.

Scoring was excellent on the pure greens.

Likeable Simon Poucher(10) (known as ‘aqua man’ to his golfing friends after losing plenty of balls in the drink on a recent trip to Turkey) led his team into 4th place with a solid 86. The team finished strongly recording three birdie twos on the back nine short holes. Big Dave Carlile(11) was immense picking up seven shots for his team.

The home Davyhulme team of low handicappers Dave Blease(3), Karl Marginson(4), Luke Connor(5) and Dave Lowe (5) had a solid performance with 87 points to take 3rd place.

Second place and just narrowly missing out on victory with a card play off was Neale Laurent(12) John Harrop (6) Lee Merson (1) and Peter Hoctor(11). They dropped two shots on the 17th which proved to be very costly.

Winning on the back nine was Birchwoods’ vice-Captain Simon Wilkinson(6) Gerry Salmon (13) Pete Abbott (11) and John Fitzsimmons (5). They also dropped a shot on the 17th but scraped home with 45 points on their back nine.

Well played chaps great score.

Thanks to everyone for your support,

Tim

Results from amazing Romiley

Space at Davyhulme on Monday – another great track!

Maxitours at amazing Romiley

Romiley was an outstanding venue for the latest Maxitours fixture. There was terrific feedback from my players throughout the day.

‘I had forgotten just how good Romiley is!‘ Admitted Peter Veitch.

‘That is a class course- It must be the most underrated course in the North West.’ Announced intelligent Port Vale fan Colin Roberts.

‘Those greens are amazing – by far the fastest and best I have played on this year.’ Praised Andy Veitch.

The food at Romiley is also a bit special, new caterers have brought some New Zealand flare to the menu and the food was enjoyed by all.

Martin Humphries is famous for his bright clothes – he sometimes looks like he has been involved in an explosion at a paint factory. He had a good spell this winter and won a couple of grey maxitours tops- and lost a bit of colour from his game at the same time. I can feel a bright outfit coming on next week.

Steve Farmerson blamed his poor golf on exhaustion after watching the PGA championship into the small hours of Monday morning and then last night his wife was keeping him awake with a terrible cold.

‘I’m going to the spare room tonight – I’m going to sleep like a tramp in a five star hotel’ He muttered.

Scoring was tough with the fast, undulating greens and the strong breeze also played havoc with my players.

Three teams scored eighty points. Karl Marginsons team finished 4th, Colin Roberts finished 3rd and the team of Richard Blackwell(11) John Hilton(14) Garry Smith(8) and Doug Hill(14) won the card play-off after a solid 42 on the back nine.

Winning the day was the wealthy Sandiway team of Gary Neiles(5) , Father and son Henry(5) and Richard Melrose(6) and Paul Hurst(12). They had a terrific back nine of 44 points to earn them a first win of 2022. Well played chaps.

Thanks for your continued support and integrity,

Yours in golf, Tim
