C team earn home draw 3-3 with Melton Mowbray - July 18th

Belton Park C team entertained golfing friends from Melton Mowbray on a gorgeous warm sunny Thursday afternoon. The course was in immaculate condition with fabulous fairways and greens, and a pleasure to be competing on. 

Captain Ian Carroll, partnered again by Ian Whyte, played well but never capitalised on the putting and went down to Melton’s Captain Adrian Green and Ady Stokes. 

The 2nd pair of James Wiggins and Garry Taylor made up the deficit with a win, then bad news came from our 3rd pair John Clark and Alec Sherwin who battled hard but lost. This scenario continued on to the last game, making the match halved, 3-3. 

This week the 3 winning pairs went on to the best players of the year table and special thanks go to our last pair, Ken and Andy, as they both came in as late subs and won their game to halve the match. 

A big thanks to our green keepers for presenting us with a great course and to our kitchen staff for feeding us so well and we bid a sad farewell to Dan who has catered for us for 5 years on the tables - good luck on your new travels in Scotland.
