GOLF Week continued in full swing at Frinton Golf Club.

Last Tuesday’s competition was sponsored by Boydens.

It was a three-man stableford event with all three scores counting and double points for the designated player.

The scoring was competitive and two teams came in with 143 points.

Vice-captain Peter Gard, Alan Keyte and John Warwick were the winners on countback, just ahead of Chris Hemingway, Neil Macrae-Smith and Peter Irwin.

In a close third place, with 142 points, were Murray Northover, Simon Partridge and David Partridge.

Angela Vaughan, Claire Vaughan and Deborah Tanner were the best-scoring ladies' team, with 129 points.

There were several prizes for nearest the pin but the most remarkable was on the sixth, where Ian Robinson was in the hole. He had a good week.

Everyone playing on Wednesday deserved a prize just for showing up.

The weather was filthy – gale-force winds and sheeting rain. Despite that, there were some very respectable scores.

The format was fourball better ball.

Peter Webster and Roger Deeble scored 45 points to win the day. Nick Brown and Andrew Vaughan were in second place, with 41 points, and Ray Burkwood and Jeff Morgan placed third, with 39 points.

Eillisons were the generous sponsors of the day.

The ladies were luckier on Thursday, for their ladies' invitational day.

It was still very windy but at least it didn’t rain.

Townrow sponsored the day, as they have for many years.

Caroline Grey and Gavin Cowell won for the second year in a row, this time with 40 points.

Caroline Gard and Kevin Maleray came in second, on countback, with 37 points, just beating out Yvonne and Steve Davies.

After lunch, Richard Townrow handed out the prizes.

The final day, Friday, was sponsored by Handelsbanken and the format was an 18-hole four-man Texas Scramble.

The morning starters had a much better time of it as the rain stayed away until around 3pm.

The winning combination of David Partridge, Danny Dix, Mike Reynolds and Ed Glease took first prize with a score of 58 nett. Second place went to Phil Townsend, Simon Parkes, Paul Card and Mike Kuzma, on 59.6.

The best mixed team and actual third went to Robin Bond, Rosemary Rouse, Mary Johnson and Chris Vine.

There were several nearest the pins but the closest was Joanne Little, from Handelsbanken, at 2’7” on the 16th.

Other prizes were awarded at the presentation Friday evening. Iain Quick and Loraine Motion won the Sainsbury putting competition.

Nick Brown won the Mallinson Pitch and Putt event and Jamie Redden was awarded the Philip Robinson Trophy.
