Manchester and District Golf Alliance at Fairfield

Sponsored by Steve Moores of Majestic Coffee

Sunny start at Fairfield

FAIRFIELD Golf Club was able to show off its redesigned course and splendid new club house to full effect as it hosted the first competition in the Manchester Alliance Winter season.

The day was blessed by superb weather and an excellent course to give an excellent debut to the Alliance’s new Captain Dave Smith (Swinton Park GC professional).

Jamie Howarth has played for several years on the European Challenge Tour and the Europro Tour and is now the assistant professional at Davenport GC and he showed his class with a great double.

The top assistant pro, not in the top three, was Ashton-on-Mersey’s Ollie Smith with 30 points.


Jamie Howarth made it a double as he partnered Werneth Low’s Kevan Tipper, father of Low professional Jamie Tipper, to 46 points to win the pro am section from Craig Corrigan and Phil Conner (Wigan) 45 and Bob Batchelor (Stand) and Jordan Whitehouse (Blackley) 41.
