COURSE REVIEWS AND TESTIMONIALS
MAXITOURS at Gorgeous Hazel Grove
Hazel Grove was back to its very best for today’s Maxitours Golf Day. Perhaps the best fairways on the circuit and superb greens make this one of the premier courses in Cheshire. The sloping and slick USGA greens are a great defence for this superbly designed course and, despite being not a long course, the scoring was very average by Maxitours standards.
James Rowlands, the Club Professional, is one of the best in the business and he looked after us well today. I can highly recommend him for Club fitting if anyone is in the market for a new set…
Dr Alistair Mackenzie designed Augusta National, Cypress Point and Hazel Grove. There is a lovely wooden statue of him overlooking the 18th green.
When it is played off the tournament tees the 3rd and 18th holes both require hefty 200 yard carries over a ravine so I asked Hazel Grove to kindly move them forward on those holes. This would then give all players a chance to reach the fairway. Unfortunately it all went wrong for one player when his woeful tee shot careered backwards off his partner’s trolley and gently rolled back onto the white tee 40 yards behind him!
Another regular Maxitour player holed his bunker shot on the second to win some balls in the 2’s sweep. He shouted to some of his pals on an adjacent fairway and told them all about it. After play he had a look around the pro shop and talked the pro through his birdie. The lovely lady behind the bar, who had worked hard throughout the day, was trying to pull the shutters down at the end of her very long shift when this player asked her ‘Did you hear about my birdie today?’ whilst sitting on a nearby bar stool.
The home Hazel Grove team of Mick Jones (7), Andrew Hill (1), Dan Moss (7) and Chris Hayes (5) were overwhelming favourites to use their local knowledge and win today’s event. The class team were gutted to finish in 4th with 80 points. ‘The putt’s just wouldn’t drop’ said Mick. ‘They were hopeless ‘reported honest legend Andrew Hill.
Prestbury’s Steve Hall(17) and Chris Adams(13) were teamed up at the last minute with David Wakerley (6) and Malcolm Hodson (10) from High Legh. The chemistry was electric as they combined well to take 3rd place and they immediately became the best of friends.
Narrowly taking 2nd place on a card play-off was Richard Blackwells’ (13) Mottram Hall team. These boys have struggled this year but they showed all their experience to battle to runner up spot on a tough Hazel Grove course. I watched them make two tremendous pars on the closing hole to pick up six points. Andy Hamlett (8), Tony Jennison (5) and John Hilton (13) completed the talented quartet.
Winning today’s event was Shrigley Hall’s Brian Hopkins (4), Mark Taylor (12) Mark Johnson (12) and Niall Lynch (10). Lynch is a radiologist at Manchester hospital and he looked at a few pictures and twiddled a few knobs this morning before he left work to play great in today’s Maxitours event. It was a wonderful team effort but Hopkins’ driver and wedge into 12 feet at the last set up a memorable birdie finish to win, by a solitary shot!
Well played chaps great golf!!
Thanks to all who played today, everyone was raving about the quality of the golf course.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the service we have received from your staff.
We have been using your premises for some years for our monthly meetings and for other functions such as dinners and other events. Some of us also enjoy coming to your New Year’s Eve Ball.
Martin and his staff make us feel very welcome and the service we receive is second to none. Nothing is too much trouble for Martin and he does his very best to provide what we want.
We were very fortunate to find you when we were looking for new premises and I hope that our relationship continues well into the future.

GOLF BUSINESS TOGETHER
We recently held a charity golf day at Hazel Grove. Dealing with James (the Pro) was very easy. He made the process very simple and was more than happy to offer any advice in order to improve our event. The same must be said for the kitchen staff who not only provided us with a great meal afterwards, but also were able to accommodate some of our clients who had special dietary requirements.
The course was in superb condition, especially considering the amount of rain that had fallen only a few days previously. All our players had an enjoyable day and we would be more than happy to come back here again for another event.

This is a charity which is close to my heart. Diabetes UK provides information, advice and support to help people manage the condition well. They have a network of over 10,000 members and specialists who share their knowledge and improve the lives of people living with diabetes.
Ollie is a poorly little boy living in Poynton and last year his parents were given the devastating news that Ollie has a very rare genetic illness called Late-infantile Batten Disease and more recently the family have been given more devastating news, Ollie’s little sister, Amelia (age 2) has also been diagnosed with Battens. This cruel disease will rob both Ollie and Amelia of the ability to walk, talk, swallow, play and see. Batten Disease is fatal and children normally pass away between the ages of 6 and 12 years.
The monies raised will go towards any care and specialist equipment these children may need, plus any trials that may benefit Ollie and Amelia. It will also help give enjoyable experiences for the family as well as raising funds for the Batten Disease Family Association (BDFA) Charity in the hope that one day a cure will be found.
