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. Mike joins us after 22 years in the army. He thought that was tough – wait until he meets some of our members! 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.

First bronze B was won by Jemma Jackson with 47 points. And Louise Wood won first bronze C with 45 points. In the afternoon, Sheran Harding won the putting contest. And Yvonne Davis had the best target practice with a score of 100. Click for results with photo


The Seniors had a home match against Felixstowe Ferry, played on the hottest day of the year so far. A number of strong performances by the Frinton team was rewarded with a 5-3 victory, thus maintaining the Seniors’ unbeaten home record.

The Seniors also enjoyed their captain’s away day at Colne Valley. The day was won by David Wilson, with Roger Attrill coming in second, and Robin Bond in third.

The end of the month Friday stableford was won by Nick Brown with an impressive score of 42 points.
Phillip Townsend was in second place with 38 points. And Kevin Jenkins finished third with 36 points.

On Saturday the men’s section played a 4BBB stableford. It was a blustery day with showers, but some of the scores were quite good. Peter Gard and Kevin Maleary came out on top with 42 points. The team of Vince McAuley and Philip Bird were in second place on count back with 40 points, just ahead of Wayne Ross and Gary Chisnall.

NEWSLETTER 16th July 2018

Article Published: Monday 16th July 2018 22:34:36 pm
FROM THE CHAIRMAN
On behalf of all our members, I would like to thank Lynda Boland and all her ‘green fingered’ helpers for the wonderful display of hanging baskets and tubs on our terrace. It is a pleasure to sit out there and I can confidently say that the terrace has never looked better.


FROM THE LADY CAPTAIN – MARILYN CLARKE
Congratulations to all those who have played in the Ladies Bronze matches. We are now in the quarter finals and will play Three Rivers at Stoke by Nayland on 20th July. The tee off is 11.00 am and we would very much welcome caddies and supporters.


SILENT AUCTION
The Ladies Section is holding a Silent Auction to help raise funds for new toilet facilities on the Havers Course. The Auction will be on Tuesday, 17th July and the ladies hope that as many people as possible will come and support this cause. Members have been very generous in their donations for the Auction and all the items will be displayed in the Trophy Room on Monday, 16th July when people can leave a bid for anything that takes their interest. The Auction will be concluded at 2 pm.



FRINTON SENIORS
The Seniors team are still looking for their first away win of the season, a series of home and away matches against other local clubs. After taking a heavy beating at Colchester, better things were expected at Harwich; unfortunately, the improved performance was still not good enough and Harwich took the match by 5 games to 3.
The fate of the Martini Cup (a Stableford event where the best 2 scores count from 3 possible returns) was sealed with a resounding win for Richard Lewis. He finished well ahead of the field with Kevin Jenkins taking second place and Roy Stevenson third.




A GOLF WEEK REQUEST FOR THE OFFICE
We are desperately in need of raffle prizes for Golf Week, so if any member can contribute to the cause, the Captains would be extremely grateful, and all contributions should be taken to the office.
