Frinton ladies played a greensomes competition last Tuesday. It was a fine day for it, warm and not too windy for a change. Mary Johnson and Angela Low were out in front, winning it with 37 stabelford points. Rosemary Rouse and Sheran Harding were in second place with 34 points. And third went to Barbara Thorpe and Debbie Tanner with 29 points.

The final of the Appleby Meyer Foursomes was played on Saturday. It’s a ladies summer knockout event. Ginny Richardson and Barbara Thorpe narrowly won it on the 18th, beating out Angela Vaughan and Sheran Harding.

Perhaps the most exciting event of the week was the Committee v. Staff greensomes competition held on Thursday in sunny and benign conditions. Battlelines were drawn early, with the staff stoking up on meat sandwiches in the clubhouse while committee members were out practising in the cold. It was a hard fought competition, but afterwards Chairman Graeme Dodds was overheard saying, ‘We got thrashed.’ The staff won it 4 ½ to ½.

The above draw was carried out with the help of a small but very important section of the Club at Monday lunchtime.

The result was as follows.

No 62 G. Lardon £140.00.
No 53 T.Barnes £100.00
No 237 A.White £ 80.00
No 208 D.Hanson £ 65.00

TOTAL £385.00

Congratulations to each of you, a nice bit of help with Christmas just around the corner.

I am sorry to say that the numbers in circulation are becoming seriously diminished hence the fewer prizes. The club depends very much on the 100 club and its membership in order to complete the course irrigation system, among other things.

I am advised by Deborah that several members have decided not to continue, whether this is because they didn't realise they were overdue or for other reasons.

It might be that a standing order will save you calling at the Club office every year, this can easily be arranged and we would be delighted to welcome you back, this also applies to every new member, for just £60 per annum you can get in with the chance of winning and supporting the club.

Remember the more members in the 100 club the larger the prizes.

If you have any comments or suggestions to improve the 100 club membership please let me have them. EVERY LITTLE HELPS.

Good luck and best wishes.

David Joshua.

Golf news for 29th October

Article Published: Monday 29th October 2018 12:37:06 pm
Frinton GC Havers Course members played in the Friday stableford, always held on the last Friday of the month. The beautiful summer-like weather had given way to more autumnal conditions, with a stiff northerly wind.
However Peter Morris prevailed, winning it on count back with 36 points.
Steve Phillips was awarded second place. And Tom Kennedy finished third with 35 points. Sadly no ladies entered the competition.

The ladies played a foursomes competition on their day.
The sun was shining, but the wind was a distraction.
Three teams finished with 29 points, with Sheran Harding and Mary Johnson awarded first place on count back. Yvonne Davies and Marilyn Clarke were in second place. And Joan Horner and Angela Low came in third.

The stableford encompassing the Past Captain’s trophy competition was a bit of a wash out on Sunday.
A full field of players started the event, but torrential rain and a sudden sharp burst of hail dampened spirits, and many retired to the clubhouse early.
Eighteen men prevailed though, and Peter Webster took home the trophy. Geoff Taylor won the stableford with a great score of 41 points. Mike Leonardi was second with 37. And Neil Meixner finished in third place with 36.

Tricia Hamilton was in second place on count back with 33 points, just ahead of Angela Low and Ginny Richardson.

Frinton GC men vied for the University Shield on Sunday in bright sunshine and summer like conditions. The competition format is a medal with a maximum handicap of 24.

Captain Simon Martin-Redman was in third place with 69 nett.
