Macclesfield duo regain Mixed Foursomes title

Vale Royal Abbey GC have been the hosts for the County Mixed Foursomes Championships since the competition began a few years ago.
Once more they provided a bright sunny day and a course in good condition considering the awful weather in the days prior to the event.
As always the historic clubhouse provided excellent hospitality and a friendly service for officials and players.
This year saw the entry format changed as other players were able to play as well as the designated club champions and there was a big field of 90 players with handicaps ranging from scratch to 41, welcomed to the first tee as always by Roger Scowcroft.
Cheshire President Tony Gregory and his wife Linda (Stockport) were able to experience playing in the competition for the first time and they enjoyed the company of Didsbury GC’s new Lady Captain Tricia Allison and her able partner David Newell.
It was a tense finish to the competition with the outcome of the championship going to a card play-off on 41 points.
It was won by Macclesfield GC’s Chris Massey and Greeba Jones who were winners of the competition in 2020.
The big hitting from Chris combined superbly with Greeba’s deft touch around the greens to take them across the line from Lily and Ian Jones (Prenton GC).
It also needed a card play-off on 38 points to take Sarah Dee and Adam Morrey into third spot from Jo Akers and Dave Quinn (Stamford).
Another great day for mixed golf in Cheshire and Tony Gregory gave deserving praise to all who had contributed from Vale Royal Abbey, the CUGC and the players to make this a very sociable and competitive day for county golf.
