Snake warning issued after adder spotted on golf course

Experts tell the public not to approach as warm spell could see spike in sightings

Adders will only use their venom as a last means of defence, usually if caught or trodden on. No one has died from adder bite in Britain for over 20 years. With proper treatment, the worst effects are nausea and drowsiness, followed by severe swelling and bruising in the area of the bite. Most people who are bitten were handling the snake. Treat adders with respect and leave them alone.

Ladies Stableford and Poker Circle Spring Meeting

Article Published: Monday 15th May 2017 20:51:30 pm
It was a good turnout for the ladies stableford last week. Although the north wind prevailed, it felt more spring-like out on the course, and the ball was rolling nicely.
Two ladies achieved 35 points, with vice captain Margaret Dean awarded first place on count back, ahead of Ginny Richardson. Several ladies finished with 33 points, but third place went to Caroline Gard.

The Poker Circle held its Spring Meeting on the weekend. The format was a 4BBB.
Most of the day was bright with a bit of wind, and the scores reflected the weather and the fine condition of the course.
The winning combination was veteran Alec Rowley and youngish Luke Nokes with 43 points.
Peter Irwin and Harry Sanderson were awarded second place on count back, ahead of Rodney Holder and Brian Cordery.
Notably, Ian Chamberlain finished with an eagle 3 on the 18th.

Frinton GC hosted the first round of the Leslie Wood in an action-packed match against Brentwood. President Malcolm Withycombe and Club Captain David Joshua led a good group of members to support Captain Rob Long’s team.

In the morning foursomes, Liam Wilson and Ross McAuley gave Frinton a convincing and impressive win. Sadly though, it was the only one for Frinton so the score at lunchtime was 4 to 1 Brentwood.

Frinton clearly had a mountain to climb. The morning winners Wilson and McAuley were out first and won their matches, both 2/1. The news spread around the course that a comeback was looking almost possible. And then the tide turned and the wind came up, all to the home team’s advantage. Wins swiftly followed for Chris Hemingway (3/1), Simon Partridge (3/2), Alan Morrison (3/2) and Bill Burns (5/4). Paul Mutton, at all square playing 15, hit the shot of the day to 20 feet from the 14th fairway. Bob Newton and Mutton won their matches 1 Up and 3/1 respectively, and the final score was 9 to 6 to Frinton. The win was celebrated on the veranda before retiring to Captain Long’s for pizza and pool.

The ladies played a stableford on their day. As usual for April, the cold north wind made the going more difficult. However Caroline Gard and Joan Withycombe were in fine form, both having scores of 37 with Gard named winner on count back. Two ladies finished with 35. Ginny Richardson was awarded third place on count back, just ahead of Julia Walshaw.

In the Friday men’s stableford competition, David Moore was the winner with a seriously good score of 42 points. Kevin Smith was in second place with 39. And Brian Stokes was awarded third place on count back with 38, ahead of Murray Northover and Steve Mitchell, also with 38.

And finally fifty four gents and ladies entered the monthly stableford event open to all Havers Course members. Tony Nicholas outdid himself, winning it with 43 points. Three men scored 42, with Stuart Grimwade claiming second place on count back, ahead of John Harding and Colin Shaw.

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

On Easter Sunday the men vied for Alan’s 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 year’s 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 60’s 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. George’s 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 – 3. It was a great golf event followed by a delicious lunch.
