It was mixed foursomes for the Arnold Quick Salver at Frinton GC on Sunday, Mr. Quick’s favourite format. The weather turned noticeably autumnal overnight and players were clearly confused about what to wear. Attire varied from shorts and golf shirts to fleeces with woolly hats. Marilyn Clarke won the prize for winter wear, sporting her pink quilted cap. Stuart Grimwade and Jeanne Nokes scored 37 points to win the event. Nokes (handicap 37) exhibited her partner-selecting skills in inviting Grimwade (5) to join her. Second place went to Anthea Coffey and her partner Roley Brockman on count back with 35 points. Ginny Richardson and James Hide were awarded third. Anthea, Arnold Quick’s daughter, handed out the prizes, assisted by Amalia and Zara Coffey, Mr.Quick’s great granddaughters. It was a fun-packed day.
Frinton was proud to sponsor the ever-popular RNLI stableford competition the last Saturday in August. It was a full field, open to all Havers Course members. Wayne Ross came out on top with a great score of 44 points. Marilyn Clarke was in second place with 43. And Stuart Grimwade had 40 points to finish in third.
Sixteen golfers left Frinton last Tuesday for the Lady Captain’s Away Day at Ufford Park, Woodbridge. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day in the sunshine discovering a challenging course with plenty of ponds and water to carry from elevated tees. Up and coming junior Chelsey Duffy was warming up on the range when the head of her driver cracked off so she had to make do without it for the competition. The winning team were Sandra Balderston, captain Lynda Boland, Marianne Kelly and vice captain Viv Stansfield.
