Belton Park 1st Team Triumph over Blankney

On Saturday, May 18th Belton Park Golf Club 1st team, captained by Sean McAuley, welcomed Blankey Golf Club to compete in the 3rd league match of the season. The weather on the day was calm, with a light northerly breeze. However, the conditions got a little tougher when the rain came in the late afternoon.  

The first game went down the 18th ending in a well-fought half. There were notable victories from Joe Clayton and Olly Mitchell who won their match 6&5, shooting an impressive 4 under par after only 5 holes set the scene for the young duo in their second match together. They are becoming somewhat of a formidable force.

Sean McAuley and Kevin Sheppard who were 3 down after 6 holes went on to win on the 13th green thanks to a fantastic birdie from Kevin closing out the match 6&5. 

Belton Park didn't lose a single match on the day. Harry Glenn and Sam Sutton’s game went down the 18th, but an impressive clutch putt from Harry lead to a well-earned half point. With the score at 4 – 1, Belton Park were waiting for Steve Mitchell, a 1st team veteran and rookie Simon Moore who was experiencing his first scratch team match. The pair were obviously well suited, shooting 6 under gross and winning their match 2&1.
