There was a pleasing full house for the latest fixture and High Legh Park Golf Club put on a great venue both on and off the course and we were blessed with reasonable weather as the final groups just about beat the rapidly fading light.
The quality of the course and the excellent greens invited some good golf and it reaped its rewards in a terrific competition for the prizes on offer.
It was back to his golfing roots for Disley assistant professional Ian Ridgway who spent several of his formative golfing years at High Legh and was delighted to meet up with his old friend Andrew McKenzie, the teaching professional at High Legh.
Ian was inspired to post a five-under-par 41 points to win the individual professional prize by a point from Rob Braithwaite, Grant Hamerton (Pike Fold) and his Disley boss Scott Jackson.
Davenport’s Jamie Howarth found an excellent partner in club colleague Brad Cooke as they took the pro am section with an impressive 46 points from Rob Braithwaite and Matthew Whittaker (Helsby) who won a cpo on 43 from Craig Corrigan and Mark Riley (Leigh).
Swinton Park’s ever smiling Jimmy O’Reilly also found an excellent partner in the "Jolly Green Giant", Paddy Knowles (Worsley GC) as they combined superbly for 43 points to win the Am Am section from Steve Finan and Martin Dwyer (Stamford) 42 and Adam Wells and Ian Fearns, also Stamford, 41.
Taking the nearest the pin prize to complete a great day for the Alliance was Mark Riley (Leigh).
