It was a full field last Thursday when Frinton GC members and guests remembered the late, great Peter Kincaid. Peter’s nominated charity was RNLI, and a cheque for £1377 was presented to their representative Mark Doogan at the end of the event. The day’s format was a Texas Scramble, and the scores were very close. The winning team was made up of Simon Martin-Redman, Danny Dix, Simon O’Brien and Murray Northover coming in with a score of 60.6 nett. Just above that in second place with 60.8 were Iain Quick, Roger Attrill, Nigel Oakley and Dan Leno. Third place went to John Oakford, Andy Benstead, Richard Lewis and Jason Nicholls with 61.8. The best ladies team were Tracey Taylor, Loraine Motion, Sheila Attrill and Judy Taylor.
The Ladies Autumn Meeting also took place last week in gorgeous sunshine and very little wind. The morning format was single stablefords. On the Havers Course, Joanne Simons was the winner with 39 points. Sheran Harding came in second with 37 points. And Jan Wright was third on count back with 36 points. On the Kirby Course, Susie Gregory came in first with 36 points. And Liz Lewis was second with 34 points.
In the afternoon there was a Texas Scramble on the Havers Course over 10 holes. The winning team consisted of Donna Oliver, Maria Naden, Jan Wright and Linda Boland with 30.6 nett. Judy Taylor, Sheila Attrill, Helen Barr and Margaret Dean were in second place with 31.8.
The Poker Circle held its autumn meeting on Saturday. The weather was more like summer than autumn though. It was a 4BBB format, and Roly Brockman and Ian Chamberlain won it with an amazing score of 48 stableford points. Apparently Brockman accumulated some 40 points on his own. Second place went to George Greenwood and Bill Crickmore with 43 points. And Gavin Cowell and Luc Gagne were in third place with 42 points.
And finally there was an over 70 and over 80 stableford competition on Wednesday. Philip Thornton won the over 70 prize with 41 points. Roy Stevenson was in second place with 39 points. And Richard Robson won the over 80 prize.
