Frinton GC captains Peter Webster and Angela Vaughan hosted their last event, the Captains Swan Song 2017 greensomes stableford, prior to the election of new captains at next week’s AGM.
There was a big turnout in spite of the high winds which made the going more difficult. Scoring was good however, with 38 being the magic number.
There were 2 sets of prizes.
In the men’s competition, Mike Leonardi and Nigel Anderson won it on count back with 38 points, just ahead of Peter Outtridge and Andy Hipkin. Nigel Jackson and Ian Binns finished third, also on count back with 36 points.
In the mixed and ladies category, the mother/son pairing of Audrey and Adrian Joshua won it, again on count back with a good score of 38 points, just ahead of Donna and Toby Oliver. Donna’s newly reduced handicap apparently didn’t hold her back. The 2 captains, Peter Webster and Angela Vaughan were in third place with 37 points.

On ladies day, the format was a stableford and Donna Oliver had another good day, winning it with 38 points. Marie Ellis was in second place with 33 points. And captain Angela Vaughan was in third place with 32 points.
The final of the Easter-to-Easter round robin/knockout was played last week. In a hard fought match, Gavin Cowell and Caroline Grey emerged victorious 2 & 1 over the other finalists, Jan McLellan and Geoff Pigott.
