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.
