Maxitours at brilliant Ringway
Ringway proved to be yet another fantastic venue for my Maxitours players today.
The course is always in terrific condition and head green keeper Richie Stevens did me proud once again. It was great that he introduced himself and wished us a good day- Top green keeping!
The first half of the field enjoyed perfect conditions but late in the day the weather gradually deteriorated
‘Zat is a vunderful course!’ Announced Dutchman Koos Alders. ‘ I would love to play it in ze zummer’.
‘I could be a member here!’ Reported Martin Humphries ‘That is a top, top course!’
Thanks also to Tracy who is one of the most forward thinking General managers in the business. She was superb today.
Chris Bracchi is easily persuaded. ‘Whats for lunch?’ He asked the waiter.
‘We have only got freshly cooked pulled pork with apple sauce on delicious baps with chips.’
‘That is too much for me. ‘I’ll do without.’
‘We’ve also got freshly cooked pulled pork with apple sauce on delicious baps without chips?’
‘That sounds nice -I’ll have one.’
In todays event popular Colin Roberts led his Alsager team into 6th place with 81 points . They had a best of the day 45 points on the front nine before the tough back nine took its toll.
Maxitours legend Lewis Marland had his best performance of the season playing alongside Phil Dickens (13) Dave Greenwood (11) and one of six attractive ladies playing today- Sarah Ormrod (14)
They were delighted to finish in 5th place.
New Mills mechanical engineer Tony Jennison (5) took 4th place playing with Nick Moores (12) Andy Hamlett(8) and Richard Blackwell (13)
Sandiways Gary Neiles(6) took 3rd on the card play off teaming up with John Longworth(14) John Morton(12) and Jimmy Ainscough(22)
Narrowly missing out today was Retired headmaster Nigel Ashtons team (13). Ashton is more famous for turning up 2 hours before his Maxitours start time so he can park his beloved BMW somewhere safe rather than his golf game. He was excellent today though and made a vital par on the 17th when his team were wobbling. Colin Bryan (9) Paul Fell (5) and Wigan’s Martin Humphries (12) completed the team.
Winning today despite playing in the worst of the conditions was the Ashton on Mersey team of accountants. Adam Robinson(7),his retired Dad Paul(10) Haydn Parry(4) and Gabriel Bagshaw (2) took first place with 85 points. ‘Have you got any interests or funny stories for my report?’ I asked the pen pushing quartet.
Great golf lads

I require 1 player at 2.24 tomorrow with 3 nice guys (2 of them single figures) Let me know
Maxitours at marvellous Knutsford
Growing up as a lad I was always told that Knutsford was the best nine-hole golf course in the North. Not many of todays’ players would argue with that fact after experiencing the golf course today.
New head green keeper Dave Jones is doing an unbelievable job:
‘The attention to detail is incredible -that course is phenomenal.’ Reported Bramall’s four handicapper Dave Woods (he was in a good mood to be fair after a -3 back nine.)
‘Wow our green keeper needs to come here! That is outstanding work!’ Reported an undisclosed player.
‘They are the best greens I have ever played on!’ Admitted Mark Hagerty.
‘If that course was 18 holes it would be the very best in Cheshire!’ Declared single figure businessman Lee Tilley.
Thanks for the comments guys I am delighted you enjoyed my home course.
Hats off also to new clubhouse manager Steve Baker.
He was in at 7.45am this morning frying up the bacon butties and was still serving beer at 7.45pm this evening- brilliant . It was the busiest day of the year for bar and food taking at Knutsford – many thanks to all my players.
It was also good to see everyone abiding by social distance guidelines on the course and in the Clubhouse. Jimmy O’Reilly came in wearing the biggest face mask I have ever seen.
‘How did you know it was me?’ He questioned.
‘I could tell by the scruffy trousers.’
I have had over 250 different golfers support my events over the last two days and I have not had a single issue. Many thanks. It was also great to have my lovely wife and son playing together today in a Maxitours event for the first time and they had a really great day with Alistair Holloway and Garry Owen- Thanks for looking after them guys.
On my first visit to Wembley for the 1990 FA cup final I watched Lee Martin slam in the winner for Manchester United. He slammed in a few putts today but had to go home with a losers medal as his team’s 88 points was only good enough for 3rd place . ‘A Maxitours win would have meant more to me than that FA Cup win. ‘ Reported the intelligent Royal Liverpool member.
Taking second place was Carden Parks Paul Fell(5), Ian Venables(12), Mike Lowe(9) and Dave Cooper(17). Fell was top of the Xentum Order of Merit last year but has fallen off a cliff before his impressive performance today. The team picked up 8 points on the 15th hole.
Winning today and making the most of the ideal golfing conditions was the Wilmslow team of Neil Higgins(9) John Bent(7) Mark Steggs(10)and Ian Waller(12) It was great to see John Bent again who was a regular on Maxitours ten years ago. He has obviously improved a lot since then.
Well played chaps great golf.
In the two day event Paul Fells team came out on top with a very impressive 173 total closely followed bu Steve Aspinalls’ team on 166.
