Belton Park Seniors Invitation Tournament

Thursday, July 11th saw the third playing of the Belton Park Seniors Invitation tournament. This extremely popular event drew 80 players from 21different clubs in a Pairs Stableford event.

The day was blessed with fine weather and the golf course was in fine condition to host the competition. A shotgun start ensured that everyone completed their round in good time and an excellent luncheon was served afterwards. As well as a raffle, there was an auction of mainly golf-related prizes to raise funds for charity. 

Mike Collins, seniors captain, presented cheques to Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance, Cancer Research UK and The Alzheimer’s Society, raised from the successful hosting of the Lincs Seniors Past and Present Captains Day in July. The event on the day also raised a significant amount for the senior captain’s charity. Altogether over £2,500 was donated.
