COURSE REVIEWS AND TESTIMONIALS
RAM Group UK
Thank you for looking after us on Friday, We all had a great time and were really impressed with the course and how friendly everyone was. I would like to continue having our golf days at your club. I mentioned what a great venue it was to a couple of Business colleagues who also have golf days so I will arrange a 4 ball in the near future.
Thanks again for you hospitality !
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.
Young Minds is the UK’s leading charity championing the wellbeing and mental health of young people. The charity, along with its partner groups ‘Mind and ‘Heads Together’ (supported by the young royals, William & Kate, and Harry), champion children and young people’s mental health and well being across the UK.
Did you know:- 3 children in every classroom have a mental health problem? Young Minds puts them at the heart of tackling the problem.
The charity helps create change so that children and young people can cope with life’s adversities, find help when needed and succeed in life.
The strength of their impact is that they can ensure the most vulnerable children and young people get help. They promote good mental health to young people and parents and through programmes and campaigns, they empower them to be a force for change.
Young people’s mental health is something that can touch all our hearts, is not really spoken about but we know it’s there and we all probably know someone who has been affected by it. I have witnessed its effect and I welcome the opportunity this year gives me to help in some small way.
England & Wales Blind Golf is a charity that provides visually handicapped people with the facility to train and compete in the game of golf. Blind Golf is played to the same Rules of Golf with the exception that players are allowed to ground their club in a hazard. They also require the assistance of a sighted caddie or guide. Training is provided by giving new members support to receive lessons from professional golfers. Assistance is also given to schools for the blind where pupils want to start to play golf.
This is dear to my heart for personal reasons and I will nominate a medal in summer 2018 in support of this.
All funds raised during my year will go to these great causes and I am humbly grateful for any support I may receive.
