Maxitours at the Vale of Llangollen

Llangollen looked AWESOME this morning as sun streamed down on the stunning Autumnal valley setting. Conditions were perfect for a tremendous days golf.

Thanks to everyone at this great venue for looking after us all so well throughout the day. Everyone commented on how dry the course was and it was presented to its usual very high standard.

Simon Ashton from Hazel Grove was in trouble even before he left home :
‘Where are you competing at today darling? asked his lovely wife over breakfast.
‘The Vale of Llangollen dear’
‘Why the hell are you going all the way to Scotland to play golf?’

Barry Simpson loses plenty of balls when he plays but today he was looking puzzled as he walked around the clubhouse’ has anyone seen my golf bag I can’t remember where I put it?’
‘Have you got a provisional one?’ came the reply from one of our more quick witted players.

Steve Foxcroft nearly lost his golf balls , bag, clubs and trolley after he accidentally caught the go button on his electric trolley and watched it nosedive into the fast flowing river. Some long reeds stopped it from being completely swept away. He spent the rest of the round drying out his clubs but was grateful that his bag had waterproof pockets so no damage done to his valuables or car keys – Phew !!!!

Thanks to Matt Turnock for running the latter part of the day and collating the results.

Scoring was very tight at the top in today’s event with Grange Park’s Ray Tennant’s (5) low handicap team of Andy Jackson(5), Leigh Smart(1) and Billy Rawsthore(6) winning on card count back on 82 points from both Simon Ashton’s Hazel Grove team (Mick Jones(6) Rick Booth(10) and Dan Moss (6)) and Paul Dalby’s Didsbury team (Barney Ross 5, Chris Cyprus 12 and Phil Vokes 5) who were beaten into 3rd place.

Thanks for all who travelled and played today- I hope you had a great day. Tim
