Frinton GC is getting back into full swing as more competitions are coming up, and the winter knockouts are drawing to a close. The lovely weekend just past gave us a taste of what’s ahead.
The weather wasn’t quite so benign however for the Valentines Greensomes stableford on 11th February. It was fitting that a mixed pair won it. That was Angela and Andrew Vaughan with 37 points, not sweethearts, but mother and son. Other top scorers were David Partridge and Ian Binns in second place with 36 points, and just behind them in third were the pairing of Chris Hemingway and Mike Leonardi with 35 points.
A few days earlier, the ladies playing a Texas Scramble on their day. Five teams of 3 entered, and the winning combination of Ginny Richardson, Yvonne Davies and Linda Hayles were way ahead of the pack with a score of 42.8.
And last week the ladies played a Threesome Waltz over 9 holes where certain combinations of scores count. The winners were the team of Yvonne Davies, Lyn Lawrence and Helen Barr with 22 stableford points. Second place on count back was awarded to lady captain Marilyn Clarke, Linda Hayles and Sheran Harding with 19 points.
