Lady Captain Marilyn Clarke hosted the ladies Christmas stableford last week.
The ladies were decked out in their finest festive chapeaux. It was a bright and breezy day, but the ground was quite wet underfoot which made the going tougher.
Deborah Tanner was way ahead of the rest of the field, winning it with 34 points.
Sarah Taylor came in second with 29 points, followed by Diane Gerrard in third place with 28 points.

The prize for the best original hat went to Marilyn Smith

Greens Update

Article Published: Friday 7th December 2018 17:44:55 pm
- From Sam Cook
We are now at our winter cutting height of 5.5mm and are mowing greens approximately twice a week (weather dependant).
Holes are now also being moved twice a week, Tuesdays and Fridays. This is because of the increased wear and slower recovery this time of year.
The warm wet weather has meant that disease pressure has been and is currently quite high. The greens have been sprayed with a fungicide for Fusarium.
Fairways
Warm wet conditions have meant that we have had some good recovery and seed germination on all fairways. As soon as ground conditions allow, we will commence our fairway aeration (vertidraining) This will probably start in the new Year as its too hard at present.
Rough
The rough is currently being scarified to a depth of 2 inches, this is quite aggressive but will mean that the rough will be thinner at the base for next season.
The wet conditions are meaning that we are carrying out this operation as and when we can.
Tees & Collars
The autumn feed has meant these areas have recovered well and aeration will start in the couple of weeks.
Other Works
Drainage runs are being topped up, we are using sharp sand this time. It is hoped that the coarser/larger particle size will stop the settlement happening.
3rd tee is now complete and turfed, we our doing our best to keep our resident mole at bay but he is causing a small amount of damage.

Some path ends, damaged areas and low areas have also been turfed.
The irrigation installation is nearing completion with just the snagging to be carried out on the course.
Over the next week or so we will be putting out some posts and rope around the course to manage the traffic flow and sharp sanding some of entrances and exits of the bridges.
The holes by the large L/H bridge on 18 will also be filled to stop the water collecting there.

Frinton Turkey Trotters were lucky with the weather on Sunday. After torrential rain overnight, the skies cleared to a bright and breezy day for the 84 players, a very full field. The format was foursomes. There were 2 sets of prizes, one for mixed pairs, and one for menís pairings. The team of Jemma Jackson and Liam Wilson came in first overall, scoring 37 points. They are certainly the Clubís most successful mixed team. The menís winners on count back were David Baker and Steve Davies with 35 points, just ahead of Phil Townsend and Simon Parkes. Paul Card and Robin Bond were in third place with 34 points. Going back to the mixed teams, Wayne Dearth and Deborah Tanner were in second place with 34 points. And Steve Mitchell and Karen Wright came in third with 33 points. The prizes were vouchers from Wrights of Frinton butchers.

The ladies played foursomes on their day. Lady captain Marilyn Clarke and her partner Jan Harrison were way out in front, winning it with 34 points. Patricia Freear and Sarah Taylor were in second place with 29 points. And Rosemary Rouse and Linda Hayles placed third with 28.

And finally the Seniors held their Christmas Bonanza last Monday, a singles stableford followed by lunch. Mike Kuzma won the day with 39 points. Three men finished with 35 points, with Steve Phillips awarded second place on count back, ahead of Alan Dunt and Vince McAuley.
