Manchester and District Golf Alliance At Houghwood Golf Club

Sponsored by Mark Gregory of M-Pire Golf

HOUGHWOOD is one of the newer golf clubs on the huge Manchester Alliance circuit but the club certainly put on the style to provide a great venue for the latest Alliance fixture sponsored by Mark Gregory of M-Pire Golf.

The challenge of the Houghwood course was reflected in the lowering of the recent high scores in the Alliance fixtures but it did not prevent Knutsford pro Tim Maxwell showing his legendary class as he led in the individual pro section with 41 points, one more than Colin Moroney and Dave Green (Dukinfield).

Oldham’s Andy Earlam was delighted to win the pro am section with his club partner Graham Pendleton helping him to 44 points.

Hot on their heels with 43 were Stand duo Mark Hancock and Norman Haslam who won a cpo on 43 from Dave Green and his Ashton-on-Mersey partner Steve Hamlett and Colin Moroney and Adrian Rodgers (Harwood).

Top of the am am section were some familiar names topped by Alliance treasurer Vinny Doyle (Leigh) and his Blackley partner Mike Smith with 44 points.

One off their hot pace were Marcus Corfield (William Wroe) and Dave Smith (Ellesmere) and completing the prize winners were Oldham’s Steve Daubney and Peter Barrington with 42.
