On Friday evening, Sothebyís Golf and Other Sports specialist David Neech visited the club.
His job is to travel the country valuing golf memorabilia.
He gave an 'antique roadshow' style evaluation of items members brought in.
Then after dinner he took the participants on a journey through golf club and ball history and reminiscences from his golfing life. He always played as an amateur, for many years for Herts and Kent.
He played 12 times for England. He qualified for the Open in 1962 and 1963, but missed the cut by 1 stroke both times.

Neech has another day job. He scouts young talent for the English Golf Union. His most successful find to date is Justin Rose.

Frinton GC is getting back into full swing as more competitions are coming up, and the winter knockouts are drawing to a close. The lovely weekend just past gave us a taste of whatís ahead.

The weather wasnít quite so benign however for the Valentines Greensomes stableford on 11th February. It was fitting that a mixed pair won it. That was Angela and Andrew Vaughan with 37 points, not sweethearts, but mother and son. Other top scorers were David Partridge and Ian Binns in second place with 36 points, and just behind them in third were the pairing of Chris Hemingway and Mike Leonardi with 35 points.

A few days earlier, the ladies playing a Texas Scramble on their day. Five teams of 3 entered, and the winning combination of Ginny Richardson, Yvonne Davies and Linda Hayles were way ahead of the pack with a score of 42.8.

And last week the ladies played a Threesome Waltz over 9 holes where certain combinations of scores count. The winners were the team of Yvonne Davies, Lyn Lawrence and Helen Barr with 22 stableford points. Second place on count back was awarded to lady captain Marilyn Clarke, Linda Hayles and Sheran Harding with 19 points.
