Echo Report 31st March: WINTER PAIRS FINALS, SINGLE BOGEY
Inter-club competition finally got underway with Belfairs competing against Langdon Hills in round 1 of the Essex Senior Championship. In a match played in the best sporting tradition, Belfairs put in a good performance, but it was the home team that took the honours eventually winning 7-4.
Two gold leaf events reached their conclusion last week with Brian Harvey and Frank Howroyd taking the Mid-Week Pairs with a 6&5 victory over Dave Slater and Neil Arends, followed by victory in the Winter Fourball final for Kevin Gough and Andrew Nash beating Steve Mann and Baz Patel 6&4.
Patel quickly gained some compensation by winning the Single Bogey competition, winning 4 up from Chris Shawyer (+3) and Ray Jones (+3)

There is now a new list on the club noticeboard with a "c" denoting those players with a current handicap. If a "c" is not showing against your name it means your handicap is inactive and you are ineligible to play in any Gold Leaf competitions or represent the club until your handicap is active again.

Echo Report 24th March: MID-WEEK MEDAL; SINGLE STABLEFORD
Belfairs Golf Club
An excellent performance by Neil Arends (83-20=63) saw him finish a clear winner in the Mid-Week Medal from nearest rivals Tony Hayes (92-21=71) in second and third placed Frank Howroyd (83-11=72).
The single stableford competition produced a much closer affair with just 1 point separating the first 4 places. The eventual winner was Harry Smith (35), winning on countback from Ray Jones and Ray Beadell (34) just behind in third.
Echo Report 17th March: MONTHLY MEDALS
Three monthly medals were contested last week and Friday’s event went to the consistent Harry Smith whose nett 68 was more than sufficient to take first place from runner-up Ray Jones (74) and third placed Peter Upton (75).
Club captain Chris Shawyer extended his current winning run by taking both the weekend medals. nett 74 on Saturday was just enough to win a close contest from Mark Duigid (75), but on Sunday, Shawyer’s 68 eased him comfortably clear of second placed Ray Beadell (74) with ian Mudie (81) taking third spot.
Echo Report 10th March: SINGLE STABLEFORDS; DAILY MAIL FOURSOMES
Competitions continue at Belfairs despite only 9 holes in play and Ray Beadell found it no obstacle on his way to winning the first Single Stableford with 38 points, narrowly beating Steve Bucke on countback with Chris Shawyer a close third (37).
Shawyer quickly made amends however in the Single Bogey, finishing All Square in front of Alan Berry and Ray Beadell, both 2 down.
A disastrous 18th hole cost Andrew Nash the Single Stableford as his 40 points was not enough to prevent Chris Shawyer (41) winning his second competition of the month with Tony Hayes (38) taking third spot.
In the Daily Mail Foursomes, Baz Patel and Lawrence Schooley continued their fine run, this time beating Ballards Gore 1 up.
