It was a full field for the Arnold Quick Salver at Frinton GC this weekend, a mixed foursome event which was Mr. Quick’s favourite format. And in keeping with tradition, Liam Wilson and Jemma Jackson won it for the 4th year in a row with 38 stableford points. The duo of Gavin Cowell and Caroline Grey were in second place, just behind with 37 points. The Quick family made a good showing, with Iain and Jane Quick in third place with 36 points. And Anthea (Quick) Coffey and Roly Brockman scored 35 points.

The ladies section had 2 events last week. In the 6th main day stableford, Joan Horner came out in front with 36 points. Lady captain Marilyn Clarke was just behind her in second place with 35 points. And Patricia Freear came in third place with 33 points.

And then there was the Granny’s Cup. Deborah Tanner was the winner with 34 points.
It was another good day for Patricia Freear, coming in second with 31 points. And Judith Little was in third place with 30 points.

The Poker Circle held their Autumn Meeting on Saturday. The notorious card sharks Graeme Dodds (aka Chairman) and Andrew Bailey were way out in front in the 4BBB event with 46 stableford points.
That was the golf. We’re not sure how they fared at poker.

FROM THE CHAIRMAN - GRAEME DODDS

Well, after waiting patiently, our new Club Manager, Michael Clarke (Mike) has arrived! A big welcome Mike; hopefully you have left our national defences in good hands.

Next week he has the pleasure of playing with our Captain on Tuesday and dining with me on Wednesday! Hopefully lots of you will get to meet Mike next week. Be on good behaviour or goodness knows what military penalty will head your way.

Mike, welcome again. I personally look forward to working with you and I am certain you have lots to bring to our wonderful golf club.


FROM THE CLUB MANAGER – MICHAEL CLARKE

Firstly, thank you all for allowing me to become a part of your club, as stated I come from a military background but don’t let that put you off.
I look forward to meeting you all in due course and I hope I am able to add to the outstanding staff you already have here.
My door is always open for anything toward the good and benefit to the club.
Thanks again,
Mike.


GOLF REPORT FROM PETER TAGGART

Weekend Stableford
Some 40 men participated in a stableford competition on Sunday in hot sun and little wind. Despite the sub-tropical conditions, winner Frazier Maleary had a good score of 42 pts. His handicap was promptly reduced by 2 shots. Andy Hipkin was in second place with 39 pts. and Simon Partridge finished on third with 38 pts.

Ladies Daily Mail Foursomes
It was another scorcher when the ladies played in the Daily Mail Foursomes on their day. Lynne Smith and Chelsey Duffy won the medal format with a 79 nett. They may be eligible to go on to another round. Yvonne Davies and Lyn Lawrence were in second place with a score of 80 nett. and Angela Low and Mary Strutt were awarded third on countback with 84, just ahead of Caroline Grey and Marie Ellis.

All good practice for Frinton Golf Week, which commences with a men’s medal on Saturday.

Ladies 20s, 30s, 40, and Silvers.
Ginny Richardson had the best score of the day with 71 nett with Sarah Taylor finishing second on 73 nett. Lynda Boland took the third slot on countback from Rosemary Rouse with a 76 nett.


NEWS OF FRINTON SENIORS
The Seniors have played two more ‘friendly’ matches against other clubs. Both were played at Frinton but met with different results. The team from Stowmarket adapted better than many visiting teams and inflicted the first home defeat on Frinton by 5 to 3. The next home match was against old foe Colchester and saw a return to form for the Frinton Seniors by 5 to 3. The Seniors once again were pleased to represent Frinton in the Greene King team event contested by six Essex-based clubs. The event took place at Burnham on Crouch golf club and once again home advantage was a significant factor. Eight pairs from each club played in a stableford better ball event; scoring was high with three pairs recording a score of 48 pts. Frinton finished in fourth position, only narrowly losing out to Braintree who took third place behind second placed Colchester and the victorious Burnham team, who were deserved winners. The event in 2019 will be played at Frinton and it is hoped that home advantage will once again be a factor.
