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!

Belton Park Seniors vs Newark – April 21st

Belton Park Seniors played their first match of the season against a strong Newark team in cool breezy conditions. During the current Covid-19 restrictions, the two teams enjoyed a bacon roll and coffee before the match, outside of course and also socially distanced. The course was in good condition and, despite a cool breeze, the weather was kind to us.

With some very close games, Belton Park came out the eventual winners by 5½ to 2½ which was almost a reversal of the last match result back in 2019!

Unfortunately, we were not able to have lunch together after the match, but we were very grateful for the bacon roll and coffee before the match!

The new golfing season for the Belton Park Juniors got underway with the Ancaster Shield and the ADA Trophy competitions. Both events were played in unseasonal conditions, but the scoring was still excellent. 

In the ADA Trophy for Juniors without a handicap, Charlie Grindal triumphed with an exceptional score of 39, dropping just four shots. Angus Clink was second with a score of 42, narrowly beating Fred Shippey who finished third with 43 points.

For the handicap golfers there were six players within just two shots, but the eventual victor was Ellie Horsted who finished with a nett 35. Junior Captain Emily Horsted was second with a nett 36 and third place went to Marcus Wildblood, playing in his first competition at the club, also with a nett 36.

Congratulations to Ellie on winning the Ancaster Shield and to Charlie for winning the ADA Trophy.
