Changing face of Tytherington’s course
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@ theclubcompany.com
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.
