Lots of events in Frinton over Easter and the following week.

On Easter Sunday the men vied for Alanís Putter, an 18-hole stableford event with a maximum handicap of 24. The formidable team of Nigel Jackson and David Partridge were way out in front to win it with an amazing 46 points. Brian Little and Philip Thornton came in second with 42 points. And just behind them were Mitch McAuley and Kevin Smith with 41 points in third.

Frinton were presented with a difficult away tie to previous Thornton Cup winners Wanstead GC. In the early going of the morning foursomes, Frinton held their own with only one or two holes in it at the halfway stage. However the score at lunch was Wanstead 4 Frinton 1. Frinton needed to win 7 of the 10 singles in the afternoon, which was too tall an order. The final score was Wanstead 11, Frinton 4. However, regrettably Wanstead had fielded an unregistered player, so the Essex Golf Union disqualified Wanstead and gave the tie to Frinton GC.

The ladies played the Coronation Foursomes on their day in a cold north wind which made the going more difficult. However Audrey Joshua and Barbara Thorpe toughed it out, winning it with 33 stableford points. Ginny Richardson and Joan Stevenson were just behind in second place with 32 points. And third place went to Lyn Lawrence and Jan McLellan with 30 points.

The Seniors have had an excellent start to this yearís season of friendly matches. They beat Harwich and Dovercourt away by 5 to 3. When Ipswich came to Frinton, with 3 players with handicaps of 10 or less, the wind and unique Frinton course proved too much for the visitors. Frinton recorded a rare 8 to nil whitewash. And in the Texas Scramble for charity, £235 was raised for Essex Air Ambulance. The winning team was Ian Tee, Bill Smith and Geoff Wiseman.

David Hansom and Nigel Anderson won the Breakfast Foursomes with a nett 68. As winners, they collect The Grand Trophy, presented to the Club by John Evans in 1990. The rapidly improving David Partridge and Ed Glease came second with 68.5. And Bill Burns and Kevin Maleary took third with 69.

Frinton also hosted the Essex Past Captains Over 60ís competition and lunch. Chris Pask of Burnham won the event with an excellent score of 41 stableford points. Phil Kirkham of The Warren was in second place with 39 points. And David Wills of Colchester GC was awarded third place on count back with 38 points.

And finally, St. Georgeís Day was celebrated in fine style and in bright but windy conditions with a match play competition. The Exiles were pitted against the Patrons. The Exiles won it 6 Ė 3. It was a great golf event followed by a delicious lunch.
