On behalf of all our members, I would like to thank Lynda Boland and all her ‘green fingered’ helpers for the wonderful display of hanging baskets and tubs on our terrace. It is a pleasure to sit out there and I can confidently say that the terrace has never looked better.

Congratulations to all those who have played in the Ladies Bronze matches. We are now in the quarter finals and will play Three Rivers at Stoke by Nayland on 20th July. The tee off is 11.00 am and we would very much welcome caddies and supporters.

The Ladies Section is holding a Silent Auction to help raise funds for new toilet facilities on the Havers Course. The Auction will be on Tuesday, 17th July and the ladies hope that as many people as possible will come and support this cause. Members have been very generous in their donations for the Auction and all the items will be displayed in the Trophy Room on Monday, 16th July when people can leave a bid for anything that takes their interest. The Auction will be concluded at 2 pm.

The Seniors team are still looking for their first away win of the season, a series of home and away matches against other local clubs. After taking a heavy beating at Colchester, better things were expected at Harwich; unfortunately, the improved performance was still not good enough and Harwich took the match by 5 games to 3.
The fate of the Martini Cup (a Stableford event where the best 2 scores count from 3 possible returns) was sealed with a resounding win for Richard Lewis. He finished well ahead of the field with Kevin Jenkins taking second place and Roy Stevenson third.

We are desperately in need of raffle prizes for Golf Week, so if any member can contribute to the cause, the Captains would be extremely grateful, and all contributions should be taken to the office.

As the match last Saturday was to commemorate the American day of Independence it was also the an annual 100 Club day.

So I thought it would be a good idea to do the draw on Saturday on the terrace.

The result was -

1st No 279 E. Henderson £150.00
2nd No 121 Nicola Cullen £100.00
3rd No 22 Ron Morgan £ 80.00
4th No 259 Viv Stansfield £ 60.00
5th No 32 Simon Partridge £ 60.00

Several names on the list raised a guffaw when pulled out of the bag, but it was all taken in good fun.

My thanks to Ginny for her help doing the draw.

The 100 Club was started several years ago, the Club had a number of projects with no cash to spare, we initially paid for new curtains throughout the lounge, put some money towards repairs, purchased our large 60inch TV for the Lounge plus other things.

When it was realised that we desperately needed a new irrigation system for the course the 100 Club proceeds have been used to help fund it.

If you are not a member of the 100 Club please give joining some consideration. Apart from the many obvious needs we also get a great deal of fun with a monthly draw with good cash prizes.

To become a 100 Club member costs just £5 per number (£60 per year) to find out more please contact Deborah in the Club office.

Thank you all for your support.

Would the winners collect their cash from the Club office.

Good luck to you all.

David Joshua.

Since its foundation in 1997 the Arthur Havers Bursary has continually provided financial resources and support to the Club in a variety of ways.
Every year, the Bursary funds a comprehensive coaching programme and other schemes to assist junior golfers gain experience and learn all aspects of the game, many of whom have become members of the Club. The Bursary has also provided financial help to several members, in all playing categories, who have fallen on difficult times.
This year we are providing significant support to junior golf at Frinton of well over £2,000. On Sunday, 10th June, we raised £1,750. The support from Club members was greatly appreciated as was the generous sponsorship from Gerry Howe and SPL Ltd. on our 2018 Bursary Day.

Junior Coaching
Currently there are 13 Juniors on the Havers Course and the aim is to increase these to 18 by the end of this season. There are 10 juniors working towards their Havers Course handicaps. It is anticipated that by the end of June, at least five will have succeeded. The concept of working with the Golf Foundation, giving juniors skills for life and mental toughness, was a new and welcoming addition to their programme.
The National initiative Girl Golf Rocks is going well with on average nine girls attending each week. The sessions are based around fun and friendship. We are also supporting 4/6 fitness sessions for juniors. This will be run by Tom and David Dixon trying to get the juniors to understand the importance of being fit for golf. In September there is to be a six week programme on mental toughness, developing juniors’ belief in themselves and the ability to reflect on their performance.

The Golf Foundation Bonallack Award
The Bursary would also like to publicly congratulate and acknowledge the wonderful achievement by Coastal Golf and Frinton Golf Club in winning the Golf Foundation’s Bonallack Award. This was in recognition for the work that they do in linking the Club with schools and community groups, creating a pathway into Club competitions and growing Junior membership at the Club, which was 50 and now stands at 73.

The 'Golfing Girls' celebrated the 2nd anniversary of them all joining Frinton Golf Club, with a night away and two days golfing at Dunstan Hall in Norfolk.

The ladies all ventured into golf after seeing the 'Get into Golf' advertisements and are now addicted! They regularly play on both courses and enjoy the social side of the club too.

If anyone has some time on their hands and would like to try out a new hobby and make new friends, then pop down to the club and enquire about the taster lessons through the golf shop. It's great fun and a fab way to enjoy this glorious weather!

The Bonallack Award is presented to a project that creates a pathway from schools into clubs and membership.

Having started this season’s campaign with three straight home victories, the next three matches were all played ‘away’ and served to emphasise just how much home advantage influences the result!
Fixtures at Clacton, Felixstowe and Braintree came in quick succession and unfortunately all three matches recorded a loss for Frinton.
If there was a silver lining, this happened at Clacton where despite 5 games to 3 defeat, the combined scores of the home and away fixture saw Frinton win on aggregate and will therefore hold the Challenge Trophy (which the two teams play for) for a year. Felixstowe and Braintree had no silver linings and indeed only a handful of good performances; in both matches the result was a 6 and 2 loss.
Back on home territory, Frinton Seniors entertained the team from Fynn Valley. The strong wind and fast greens proved too difficult to master for the visitors and Frinton scored a 6 and 2 victory.
