Chang­ing face of Tyther­ing­ton’s course

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL -

IT’S ex­cit­ing times at The Tyther­ing­ton Club as the bunker ren­o­va­tion pro­gramme is well un­der­way de­spite the lack of sun­shine over Mac­cles­field!

The works on the 18th hole has been com­pleted with two new re­duced and re-shaped bunkers around the green and a new fair­way bunker in play to catch the longer driv­ers who have de­vel­oped since the course was ini­tially de­signed 30 years ago.

The works have been man­aged and de­signed by Course Ar­chi­tect Jonathan Gaunt with lo­cal Golf Course Con­trac­tors Greasleys.

The work on the third hole has also been com­pleted tak­ing the par 3’s large bunker into three sep­a­rate ‘pot’ style bunkers which are be­com­ing more pop­u­lar in to­day’s course de­sign.

The method of Hy­droseed­ing is to be used to stim­u­late grass growth be­fore mov­ing on to the 4th and 7th holes in the next few weeks.

In line with the works the Club has re­cently re­duced their part­ner Golf rate mak­ing joint mem­ber­ship with com­pli­men­tary Health & Fit­ness us­age at a new rate. To find out more about the Club con­tact Alex Nock, Gen­eral Man­ager 01625 506 000 or at a.nock@ the­club­com­

Sale Golf Club were given su­perb lead­er­ship by their Cap­tain and Lady Cap­tain as they dom­i­nated the leader board in the an­nual Al­liance Mixed BB Stable­ford staged at their club for the Han­cock Tro­phy.

There were early cel­e­bra­tions as Marple pro Gary Brown holed his tee shot on the 201-yard par three third hole to sup­ply plenty of am­ber nec­tar at the 19th hole.

But it was not enough to get him in the prizes in the pro am sec­tion as three pairs were locked on 41 points.

The count-back went in favour of home pro Mike Ste­wart and his part­ner the Sale Lady Cap­tain Maria Walm­s­ley which was Mike’s first win in the Al­liance since he be­came the Sale pro­fes­sional 25 years ago.

Next in were Lymm’s Gra­ham Cox and Lot­tie Makin ahead of Ring­way’s David Brun­ton and Deb Quealey.

But the stars of the day were Sale Cap­tain David Moore and Cyn­thia Ham­mond who posted a su­perb 44 poi­ints to win the am am sec­tion and the cov­eted Han­cock Tro­phy.

They fin­ished five points clear of Black­ley’s Darren Tickle and Lisa Lid­dle who won a cpo from the ever un­lucky Jimmy O’Reilly and Fran Jukes of Swin­ton Park.
