Belfairs Quiz Night Raises £1140

It was a night of brain teasers on Friday as Belfairs Golf Club hosted a Charity Quiz to raise funds for the local Disabled Riding Club. All raffle and quiz prizes donated by club members and friends of the riding school and the sell-out event included a fish & chips supper. The initial amount raised was £570, but on the winning team was Lesley Barry, Finance Director for Hockley based company Seetec, and she promptly announced that Seetec would match that figure taking the total raised to £1140. Paul Harford from the Disabled Riding Club said “It has been a great evening and we can now purchase much needed new riding hats for each of our members”. Belfairs club captain Chris Shawyer added “We are delighted that the evening went so well and we are especially grateful to Lesley and Seetec for their very kind contribution.

Echo Report 14th April: Leslie Wood; Daily Mail Foursomes; Monthly Medals

Belfairs contested the first round of the Leslie Wood Team Championship on Sunday, but their campaign was short-lived, losing a closely fought match to visitors Crondon Park. The morning foursomes started all one way for Crondon taking a 0-3 lead until Rod Hall & Andrew Nash pulled one back and then Steve Mann & Kevin Buck steadied the ship to go into the break at 2-3. The afternoon singles was a much closer affair and Ray Hallett led the way with a fine 5&3 win, but despite further successes for Nash, Buck and Kevin Gough and a half for Peter Mahoney, Crondon rallied to take the tie 6 ½ -8 ½ .

It was a different story in the Daily Mail Foursomes however, as Lawrence Schooley and Baz Patel posted their third consecutive victory in the competition, this time winning at Rochford 5&3 against a strong home pairing.

High scoring was attributed to the blustery conditions in last week’s April medals. In Friday’s version, Frank Howroyd’s nett 73 (84-11) was enough to secure first place from George Moss (91-17=74) in second and Michael Flynn (92-18=74) in third.

On Saturday, Steve Bucke carded a 72 (88-16) to take first place from Alan Berry (90-17=73) and third placed Ray Beadell (91-16=75).

Countback decided Sunday’s contest with both Kevin Gough (81-9) and David Bucke (95-23) posting 72’s, but it was Gough who took the winner’s prize with Robert Clarke (101-26=75) filling third place.

In the ladies section Sue Meddle continued her recent run of form winning the monthly medal with a 75 (93-18) with Joan Smith (85-07=78) taking the runner-up spot on countback from Hazel Webber (104-26=78)

The 1st round of the Norman Plum Trophy was took place on Saturday and teams of 6 players each played home and away to Frinton Golf Club. In a closely fought contest, Belfairs home side held the visitors to 1 ½ points each, but Frinton proved too strong at home winning 2 ½ - ½ and taking the tie overall score 4-2. Congratulations go to both teams for the sporting manner in which the matches were played. 

The final of the Winter Singles was played on Sunday and consistent Baz Patel (18) needed his best form to eventually beat Andrew Nash (10) at the 18th hole.  Patel’s recent string of wins has not gone unnoticed by the handicapper and an overdue cut is now imminent.

The ladies competition diary started last week and the opening full stableford event saw Sue Meddle (18) comfortably winning with 30 points, from runner-up Hazel Webber (26) 25 points and third placed Linda Wellham (27) 22 points.

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. This can only be achived by by returning 3 cards off the white tees either in medal or as a supplementary round (still of the white tees).

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.
