CLACTON Golf Club's seniors played their October stableford, which attracted 72 competitors.

Robert Kendrick came first with a fine 40 points.

In second was Nigel Martin, on 39 points, with Brian Langmead coming in third on countback from four other players, all on 38.

The ladies played for the Veterans' Bowl, again a stableford competition.

Susan Gurry won the day with 32 points, followed by Brenda Lord on 30, on countback from Denise Pink and Janet Hiller.

The rest of the field - those too young to enter the bowl - also played a stableford, with Sonja Strutt claiming first place.

On Saturday, 114 Clacton men played for the Lifeboat Cup - a good field considering 24 men were playing at Frinton for the Bentley Cup.

On what was more like a summer's day, with great scores recorded, Chris Little won the competition with a superb nett 66, two shots clear of the rest of the field.

Twenty-four men travelled the short distance to Frinton to play for the Bentley Cup.

Clacton were the holders and fielded a strong team hoping to retain the trophy.

Alas, home advantage and some great performances saw Frinton take the trophy 7.5 to 4.5.

Clacton's juniors also travelled to Frinton for the Sainsbury Cup.

Faring much better than the men’s team, they ran out 9-1 winners.

Clacton's Thornton Cup team travelled to Stoke by Nayland to play in the final of the Thornton Cup Plate.

However, extreme weather conditions and flooding caused the final to be postponed.

The revised dates are looking like Sunday, October 27 or Sunday, November 3.
