THE ladies played for the Van Zwannenberg Bowl, along with their third medal of the year, at Frinton Golf Club.

The bowl can be won by winners and runners-up of monthly medals and Ginny Richardson took it home with a nett of 72.

However, Jan McLellan, who was ineligible to win the bowl, had an amazing nett score of 66 to win the competition, promptly reducing her handicap by three shots.

Lily Taylor was awarded third place on countback with 74, just ahead of Lyn Lawrence.

The men’s over-55 section played The Warren and won 7-4.

The Essex PGA v the Essex Amateurs annual match was held at Frinton.

This is one of the older matches, first played in 1950.

The professionals won it but both sides enjoyed playing the course, which was in excellent condition.
