Manchester and District Golf Alliance

Seniors Championship at Cheadle Golf Club Sponsored by McKellens Masterclass

Greenmount dominate at Cheadle

CHEADLE Golf Club were great hosts for the annual Manchester Alliance Seniors Championship sponsored by McKellens Masteclass.

Good hospitality was backed by an interesting course with fast greens having their pins placed in very tricky positions.

But two stars from Greenmount Golf Club had few problems as they pulled off a great double act taking the two trophies on offer.

Jim Cox completed the Greenmount double by winning the trophy for the best scratch score posting 70 to finish ahead of Simon Brown (Heaton Park) 71 and Peter Hamlett (Ashton-on-Mersey) 72.

The prizes were presented by John Sandford, a past Captain of Cheadle who was thanked by all of the players and Alliance secretary Ian Hales for making this an excellent and friendly  competition.
