Mottram lift for next generation
MOTTRAM Hall Golf Club is leading the drive to find the next generation of stars after announcing free memberships for juniors as part of the new QFairway club – the country’s most flexible golf membership.
Providing access to 15 courses across England and Scotland, the groundbreaking initiative from QHotels is offering a wide array of benefits to youngsters eager to follow the example of World Number One Rory McIlroy and become a Major Champion.
Mottram Hall will also present each youngster with a complimentary seven-iron when they join skills.
Jonny Chaisty, Mottram Hall’s Director of Golf, said: “Juniors are the lifeblood of the game and it’s vital for the long-tterm future of golf that they are given the best chance to play and develop.
“It’s our aim at QHotels to encourage as many people as possible to play whatever their age and the new QFairway Club offers a great opportunity for all golfers to enjoy their game.
“To find out more visit the website www.QHotels. co.uk/Qfairway or call me on 01625 822 153.”
Mottram’s men played round one of the Challenge medal and Graham Webb was a clear winner with his nett 70 seeing him three shots clear of Peter Smith and Lawrence Dews.
Macclesfield ladies played an EWGA medal for the Umbro Cup in blustery conditions but Jill Higgins was on fire as she posted a super 66 to finish ahead of Sue Orwin 71 and Alycia Sutton 74.
The local East Cheshire B League clash between the ladies of Macc and Alderley Edge ended locked at 3.5 apiece but the Macc Plate team had a great 4.5-2.5 home win over Dunham Forest.
Monthly Stableford action at Shrigley Hall had Mark Fielding on top with 40 points from Jack Gaskell 39 and Andrew Kershaw 38.
Prestbury’s men played a medal as the PGA National Pro Am qualifier and Tom Kirk was the main man with 70, two shots less than the Captain.
The draws have been made for the Manchester Alliance Inter Club Knock Outs and in the blue riband Dunham Forest Trophy competition holders Bramhall kept on track to retain their title with a win at Davenport.
They now have a juicy derby tie at Bramall Park as they look to reach the last 16.
Also through to the last 64 are Tytherington who reached the final last year for the first time and they have a tough trip to Warrington.
The Tytherington team will be led by their professional Nick Holmes.
In the City Glass Men’s Foursomes the draw for our local teams is: Macclesfield v Haydock Park; Worsley v Tytherington and Styal v Chapel en le Frith.
