The conditions were very windy but dry when the ladies played their 5th stableford and Windfall qualifier last week. Joan Stevenson continued in fine form, coming out on top with the winning score of 33 points. Yvonne Davies was just behind her with 32 points. And Marie Ellis was in third place with 29 points.
At the Colchester Open at Braiswick, the Frinton team of Jan Wright, Jan McLellan, Margaret Dean and Helen Barr came in third. The weather was perfect and the course was in great condition.

Ginny Richardson and her cousin Sally Cearns from Chigwell played in the Clacton Open and came in second place. Another Frinton winner, Tracey Taylor was nearest the pin on the 5th.
The ladies weren’t so lucky though in the McManus Trophy competition on Sunday, an annual even where the ladies take on the gents. This year it was a draw, but the men get to retain the trophy as they won it last year.
The recent Seniors away matches at Maldon and Colchester were both keenly contested with a 4 ˝ v 3 ˝ results in both cases. Unfortunately a good win at Maldon was followed by a defeat at Colchester. The day will however be remembered for 2 unusual features this year – blue sky and sun. Well done to Charlie Dennis, Geoff Wiseman and Willie McMillan who were winners on both occasions.
And finally the WAGS Trophy was won by Malcolm King with 45 points, a great score considering the rough and windy conditions. George Greenwood was second with 40 points, and Shay Banim was in third place with 38 points. Approximately 45 balls are still out on the course somewhere in the rough.
