Hollinwell 25.3.19

prev next

When writing the match report,  it is usually me who extolls the virtues of the venue but this time I have merely published words from the following players:

Tim Worley 12 Brocton Hall:

‘Good morning Tony 

What a superb day at Hollinwell! Thanks very much for organising that, hopefully it’ll be available again to Teetours in the not too distant future.

Paul Buntin 2 Leasowe:

‘Morning Tony,

It was really good to see you again on Monday. Thanks for another beautifully organised day. You do it so well and I'm sure all very much appreciate your efforts.

On driving down to Hollinwell I was pondering if the course was as incredible as I remembered, from my first outing there in November and it didn't disappoint. 

If ever there was a piece of land made by God for a good course then it was Hollinwell. Simply magnificent. 

Sometimes in golf I often switch off and go through the motions but not at Hollinwell, gosh does that make you enjoy the game and play well!

I loved the phrase you coined "boy did we drop on today", I thought we had dropped on just being there. 

I've been fortunate to play in many of the scratch competitions on some of the great courses such as Birkdale, Hoylake and Formby but Hollinwell is right up there with all of them. 

I hope to see you soon and will try to make the journey for Little Aston next time you have a Teetours event there. 

Many thanks again.’ 

Andy Page 10 Uttoxeter:

“Best fifty quid I’ve ever spent!”

Thanks go to Jim Jacobs who, at only two hour’s notice, filled a slot caused by a family medical crisis.

  • Gary Poole’s gygrombulous tee shot on 18 won longest drive.
  • Martin Chattin judged a down wind tee shot perfectly for nearest the pin on 5
  • Nearest in two on 16 was to a very tight and tricky pin but Anthony Hartshorne got it very close indeed.
  • 5th place went to Brian Ahmed, Jim Davey, Stevie Gee and Russ Moore with 83 points
  • 4th with 84 was Lewis Bull, Adrian Harris, Adrian McCart and Stephen Champion
  • 3rd with 84, but a better back 9, was Aspi Mobet, Teetours virgin Richard Harding. Chris Bartlett and me (that’s why there aren’t quite so many photos)
  • 2nd with 85 was the Leisure Boys team of Tim Worley, Geoff Brown, Paul Jackson and John Showell.
  • 1st with 86 was a quality team with a combined handicap of only 25 - Paul Buntin, Paul McKewan, George Flemming and Brian Payton.

We were looked after brilliantly by Martyn Bonner’s team and provided no-one has told him that Alex Scot’s third shot to 18 found the green after bouncing off the clubhouse,  we might be allowed back in the Autumn.

Many thanks for your support.

Tony.
