Belton Park Seniors vs Sleaford (away) – May 6th

Belton Park Seniors played their second away match of the season against Sleaford Seniors on Thursday, May 6th. The weather started out fairly bright and sunny, but cold, and was fine until we were hit by two short, but heavy hail showers! 

The day started with bacon rolls and coffee served outside the clubhouse, socially distanced of course. The Sleaford course has recovered fairly well from the recent flooding, but like every course, the dry and cold weather has not helped the grass grow! Having said that, the greens were very good and reasonably quick as a result of being ironed. 

After the match, drinks were served on the patio in bright sunshine. The match result was a resounding victory for the Belton Park team 7-1, with 6 wins and 2 matches halved. Well done team!

There was a prize of a bottle of wine for nearest the pin in two on the 18th hole. Keith Bowers won the prize for the Belton Park team and Al Pearson chipped in for the home team to win the home team prize!
