The Bonallack Award is presented to a project that creates a pathway from schools into clubs and membership.

This year it goes to Frinton Golf Club and Coastal Golf Academy, Essex, which has grown its junior membership by 23, to 72 in one year. The club offers a free minibus service to collect pupils; helping 100 pupils to receive coaching, culminating in a Schools Cup for all players.

The PGA Pro, Tom Hyde, has embraced the Foundation’s Box of Tricks initiative to keep more juniors engaged and has built a Tri-Golf course at a local primary school. Highlights include: a development squad for the 9-hole course and fun inter-club team competitions, followed by access to the 18-hole course and junior membership; a Tour pass allowing free access to three other golf clubs and competitions; good communication with parents and trips to events such as the BMW PGA Championship.

Having started this season’s campaign with three straight home victories, the next three matches were all played ‘away’ and served to emphasise just how much home advantage influences the result!
Fixtures at Clacton, Felixstowe and Braintree came in quick succession and unfortunately all three matches recorded a loss for Frinton.
If there was a silver lining, this happened at Clacton where despite 5 games to 3 defeat, the combined scores of the home and away fixture saw Frinton win on aggregate and will therefore hold the Challenge Trophy (which the two teams play for) for a year. Felixstowe and Braintree had no silver linings and indeed only a handful of good performances; in both matches the result was a 6 and 2 loss.
Back on home territory, Frinton Seniors entertained the team from Fynn Valley. The strong wind and fast greens proved too difficult to master for the visitors and Frinton scored a 6 and 2 victory.
