Frinton Golf Week kicked off Saturday with two important medals. With gale force winds gusting up to 50 mph, conditions couldn’t have been much more difficult. The Centenary Medal is a scratch competition, and Kevin Smith won it with a score of 80. Phillip Townsend was second on count back with 85, just ahead of Jamie Redden. This medal is one of three that count towards the Club Championship. Redden also took home the trophy in the Phillip Robinson Medal with a nett score of 74. Phillip Townsend was second with 75. And Jack Bruce was awarded third place on count back with 76, just beating out Nigel Anderson. The day was generously supported by BMW.

On Sunday there was golf for all ages. The Norman Brown Family Foursomes kicked off with a shotgun start at 9:00. The wind was still up, but maybe at only 30 – 40 mph. The going was tough. Ian and Craig Robinson showed their mettle, winning it with 36 stableford points. There were 3 pairs with 35 points. Bill and Kevin Smith were awarded second place, ahead of George Greenwood and Edward Brown in third. Prizes were donated by Cabana, the club’s soft drink supplier.

The Grimwade Trophy event started a little later in the morning over on the Kirby Course. This is an adult/junior stableford event. Club captain Ian Chamberlain and McKenzie Merry won it on count back, just beating out Jordan Laver and Andrew Vaughan, and Freddie Rusbridge and Nick Brown. All 3 pairs had 18 points. Stuart Grimwade, the sponsor, presented the prizes.

It was another windy day for the ladies when they played their 20s, 30s, 40s & Silver competition in the 11th EWGA Medal last week. The title refers to the handicap categories. The prize in the silver division was won by Claire Vaughan with a score of 71 nett. Jemma Jackson won the 20s prize on count back with 76 nett, just ahead of Marilyn Clarke.

On Monday Frinton hosted the Greene King Inter Club Seniors Golf Tournament, the annual event generously sponsored by the brewery.

Six Essex clubs participated: Braintree, Burnham-on-Crouch, Colchester, Five Lakes, Frinton-on-Sea and Malden.
The competition is a feather in the cap for winners, this year the home team who may have been more used to the windy conditions.

The match was followed by lunch and then Seniors Captain David Moore presented prizes to the winning team, as well as to the pair with the best score, Graham Morris and William Seccombe from Five Lakes who garnered 43 points in the 4BBB event.

The atmosphere on the terrace of Frinton GC was tense on Sunday at lunchtime. It was the McManus Bowl Trophy, the annual match between the men and ladies sections.
Six teams were in the clubhouse and the score was 3 matches to the men, 3 for the ladies. The last match was on the 18th, and it was clearly close. It actually came down to the last putts, and Sarah Taylor and Glenn Maleary both holed out, to halve their match. So in the end the result was a drawn match.

The ladies played in the Daily Mail foursomes last week, a stroke play competition.
Barbara Thorpe and Deborah Tanner were the winners with a score of 74.0 nett.
Angela Low and Caroline Grey were in second place with 80.5. And third place went to Marie Ellis and Sarah Taylor with 82.5. Thorpe and Tanner may be eligible to go on to the next round.

There was also a concurrent stableford event for the ladies. Chelsey Duffy won that with 30 points. And vice captain Viv Stansfield was second with 25 points.

Lady Captain’s Day, Junior Summers Cup and more

Ladies: “Be careful what you wish for”! It was fervently hoped that Tuesday 23rd July would be a fine, sunny day free from thunder storms when Lynda Boland hosted her Lady Captain’s Day at Frinton Golf Club. The weather was super, perhaps a little too hot, hovering around 30 degrees with hardly a breeze. Forty six lady golfers were not deterred and set off with a shot gun start at 10am for 18 competitive holes. Thank goodness for the Zulu Hut manned by senior ladies as a halfway house with cold drinks and refreshments.
Four first prizes within handicap categories were awarded to Angela Low with 37 points in the Silver Division; Chelsey Duffy with 42 points in Bronze A; Louise Wood with 36 points in Bronze B and Lynne Smith with 31 points in Bronze C. Second overall prize went to Lyn Lawrence with 34 points; 3rd to Jemma Jackson with 33 points and 4th to Deborah Tanner with 33 points. Best front nine went to Jan McLellen with 21 points and best back nine with 19 points was Valerie Nicholls. Nearest the holes prizes went to Chelsey Duffy and Angela Low with Jan Harrison claiming the straightest drive.

The afternoon putting prize went to Angel Low and chipping prize to Bernadette West.

A long hot day was rounded off with an excellent meal and prize giving. The Club President, Malcolm Withycombe and his wife Joan were guests.

The end of the month Friday stableford open to all Havers Course members was played on one of the hottest days of the summer so far. Some fifty players participated, with Malcolm Boucher winning it on countback with 42 points, just ahead of Mark Flanagan. Wayne De’ath finished in third place with 40 points. .

What a difference a day makes. Saturday saw a 4BBB competition in seriously wet weather and 10 degrees colder. Glen and Frazer Maleary weren’t put off though, winning it with 46 points. Two teams came in the 42 points, with Simon Martin-Redman and Simon Partridge awarded second place on count back ahead of John Sowton and Alan Morrison.

The Junior Summers Cup was also being played for that day. Patrick Dooley won the trophy with a score of 40 points. Callum Gregory was second with 36 points. And it was a good week for Chelsey Duffy, who finished third with 32 points.

And finally the annual WAGS match (Wednesday afternoon golfers) Frinton v. Romford was played at home last week. Twenty eight players took part, with the winning team determined by aggregate stableford scores. Frinton came out on top by quite a margin. Frinton golfers Kevin Maleary, Malcolm King, Alan Rusbridge and Vince McAuley had the highest scores of the day.
