C Team Beat The Nottinghamshire 4½ - 1½

On Thursday, August 15th the Belton Park C Team welcomed a team from The Nottinghamshire for a home match which was played on a superbly laid out course with clearly defined fairways and fast true greens. 

The C team welcomed back Dave Wing who has not played due to injuries for 9 months. Dave played with C team Captain Ian Carroll in the 1st game, the result is one to try and forget! Dave and Ian played against Notts Club Captain Graeme Chambers (matchplay champion!) and Joe Timmins who holed every putt, whereas the Belton pair did not! Enough said!

The rest of the team were carefully selected from the usual honed athletes which proved to be the master plan! Belton’s 2nd pair of Andy MacGowan and Ian Whyte halved their match on the last hole, well played and well deserved!

The next two games were well won, Simon Denton & Kevin Phillips and John Cooke & Garry Taylor had fantastic results, both winning 6&5. These 4 players will be going on to the best players of the year board. Our 5th and 6th pairs of James Wiggins & Keith Smith and Robb Tapp & Clive Horn both had very close matches, but came out with that crucial 1 up wins, well played!
