Phil Townsend won it with a respectable score of 41 points. Alan Dunt came in second with 39. And third place went to Gary Cook with 38.

The competition was followed by their AGM where Chris Snelly was voted in as the next yearís captain.

Greens Report

Article Published: Friday 4th October 2019 15:44:02 pm


As Iím sure most of you are aware, we have had another dry summer which looks set to continue with only 260mm of rainfall recorded from January 1st (which is nearly 40% less than average).

The course has held up well despite this and has been much better condition than last year.
The greens have remained consistent in their appearance and condition throughout the summer and I think we are reaping the benefits of protecting them throughout the tough winter months. The finer grass species (fescue and bent) are flourishing at present.
Autumn renovations went well, and we have had good germination of the fescue seed.

This operation is essential as we remove organic matter with the removal of the core and replace with sand. This improves the playability and surface drainage of the green and creates a seed bed for the fescue to establish. The deep solid tine will fracture and fissure the subsoil to improve subsoil drainage and root establishment.

Autumn programme
The autumn/winter work programme will consist of draining the 7th and 9th fairways. Once this project is completed, we will move onto levelling and enlarging the 12th white tee.
The tank has now been replaced and tested.

Leatherjacket damage
Acelypryn has been purchased for control of the cranefly larvae, this product has been released on emergency licence again. Havers and Kirby course greens were treated on 30/9/18. We also treated the 1st tee.

We are seeing some good recovery on the bare areas of the fairways, the 5th and the 10th have had some granular fertiliser to aid this recovery.
4th, 14th and 18th will have an application of liquid foliar feed when the sprayer has been repaired

All tees have had granular fertiliser application.

Staff matters
Not much to report here, Liam and Steven are making good progress with their level 2 qualification.

As part of the new club V1 system I am providing a daily update for course operations, I hope you are finding it informative and not too repetitive. As always I am also more than happy to have a chat on the course if you have any questions or queries.

Sam Cook
Head Greenkeeper.

Frinton GC Lady Captain Lynda Boland had bad luck with the weather for her Autumn Meeting. After all the warm sunshine weíve enjoyed, the heavens opened last Tuesday and the morning event had to be cancelled. However things improved in the afternoon and the ladies braved the raindrops to play a singles stableford. Prizes were awarded by handicap categories, but ironically all three winners scored 37 points. Angela Low won first silver, Patricia Freear 1st bronze A and Suzie Gregory 1st bronze B.
Overall second place went to Sarah Taylor with 34 points. And Loraine Motion was overall 3rd with 33 points.

All Havers Course members were eligible to play in the Lorna Farebrother 4 Club Salver, and the event was fully subscribed. Itís always surprising that the stableford scores seem comparable to other events, perhaps proving that you really only need 4 clubs. Ed Glease was out in front with 39 points. Colin Shaw finished second with 37. And Max Leonardi was in third place with 36 points.

The monthly Friday stableford was also very popular this time around. Hamish Stubbs won, beating Liam Wilson in a card play off, both with 39 points. Mark Doyle was third with 37.

In the summer knockout finals, Claire Vaughan and Simon OíBrien won the Plumpton Trophy, a mixed foursomes event, beating Judy Taylor and David Partridge 3&2. And Peter Irwin and Ross McAuley won the Tony Williams Salver in foursomes match play, besting Ian Binns and Nigel Jackson 3&1.

In the Gents Over 70ís and Over 80ís Trophies, George Greenwood won the over 80 and Raymond Burkwood was the over 70 winner.
