WGTB Mixed at Heaton Moor

The Real Wheeler Dealers

The WGTB Mixed Event arrived at Heaton Moor at the end of a week of some of the worst weather the region has experience with local flooding and the majority of local golf courses unplayable.

It was thanks to the amazing work by the Heaton Moor greens staff who produced a course in excellent condition on the day and one that was enjoyed by all who played.

With just three two’s being carded it was home club player John Wheeler and the Cheadle pairing of John and Judith Sandford who picked up the haul of balls that were in the pot.

Winners Carol and John Wheeler



The nearest the pin prizes were claimed by John Wheeler and Judith Sandford who will no doubt enjoy the rewards for their quality of play.

With just a handful of points separating the field the final prize went to the seasoned pairing of Stuart Cummings and Liz Hinchliffe from Saddleworth on a score of 39 just a point behind their playing partners from Penwortham Peter and Shirley Blundell.

The winners from the previous mixed event Ken Sutton and Jan Woollen from Eaton had to settle for third spot with 41 Points.

With the early benchmark of 43 Points set by Ian Mathews and playing partner Karen Marsden from Vicars Cross along with Heaton Moors Lady Captain Carol Wheeler and her husband John it was a nervous time waiting to see if the usual sting in the tail would produce something special nut in the end it came down to a CPO to separate the two pairs with John and Carol Wheeler winning on the count back and will now look forward to a round of golf at Prestbury Golf Club at a time of their choosing.
