This was the C Team's 6th match this year and was played on a warm Tuesday evening. The Burghley Park course has changed dramatically from last year, as 3 ponds have been totally removed, replaced by new sand and grass bunkers, creating new golf challenges!
The fairways were well-defined between penal severe rough perimeters and the greens were going through some improvements and therefore were slower than our own greens.
Pali Tamang played in his first C Team match for BPGC and started with a good win, 3 & 2.
Belton Park were eventual winners by a good margin, 4-2, individual match results were as follows;
|1||Ian Carroll and Andy MacGowan||Won 3 & 2|
|2||Pali Tamang and Jim Wiggins||Won 3 & 2|
|3||Gary Clark and John Cooke||Won 1 up|
|4||Ben Bayliss and Keith Smith||Lost 5 & 3|
|5||Richard Welbourne and Jack Diment||Won 2 up|
|6||Dave Chambers and David Capindale||Lost 4 & 2|
There was a nearest the pin on the 9th hole and this was won by BPGC Jack Diment with a 186-yard tee shot leaving a 6-inch putt, not bad for an old boy!
The food, prepared by Burghley’s new chef, was fish pie followed by a cheesecake, much appreciated by all the players and ended the evening perfectly.
