THERE was perfect weather for Frinton Golf Club's Ladies’ Spring Meeting.

The non-stop sunshine and light breeze were appreciated by all 43 competitors.

Some were able to use the conditions to a greater advantage than others, especially on the smooth, fast greens.

The lady captain presented three first prizes for the three divisions.

Claire Vaughan, in the 12 to 24 handicap division, was the winner with 40 stableford points.

In division two, for 25 to 35 handicaps, Jemma Jackson won with 37 points.

In the 36 to 54 division, Susie Gregory claimed first place with 32 points.

A second overall prize went to Marie Ellis, with 35 points, on countback from Lynda Boland, in third overall position with 35 points.

The best front nine was won by Rosemary Rouse, with 19 points, while coming home on the back nine Sarah Taylor scored 17 points.

Nearest the sixth hole was Caroline Gard, while Marilyn Clarke on the 13th hole put her ball at a close 1ft 2”.

Mary Lowe gained first place with 31 points on the Kirby course, also winning the nearest the pin placement.

After lunch on the terrace, eight teams of four played in a Texas Scramble over the nine-hole Kirby course.

The winners were Diane Gerrard, Sarah Taylor, Marilyn Clarke and Lynne Smith. The runners-up were Marie Ellis, Ginny Richardson, Caroline Gard and Judy Taylor.

After dinner, the captain concluded the happy day with a prizegiving.
