Seniors Match vs Rutland Water (home) – Tuesday, September 7th.

On Tuesday. September 7th, in glorious sunshine, the Belton Park Seniors welcomed the Seniors from Rutland Water Golf Club for their return match. In the away fixture back in June, the Belton team were victorious, so the Rutland Water team were keen on revenge!

The match was played over the Ancaster course which was in great condition. In the top match, on the first hole, Rutland Water’s Tim Beck chipped in for a net birdie to get things started! The first match was very close but was eventually won by the Belton Park pair 3&1. With 2 more wins and one tied match, at the halfway stage, things were looking good for the home team. With three more wins and only one loss, the result was a 6½ to 1½ win for Belton Park. Belton remains unbeaten at home this season!

After the post-match lunch, Rutland Captain Dave Abbott thanked the greens staff for a beautifully presented course and thanked the catering staff for an excellent lunch.

Junior Captain in unstoppable form

Belton Park Golf Club Junior Captain Emily Horsted completed a memorable two weeks with victory in the Junior Club Championship. She followed up her success in winning the Ladies Championship earlier in the month with another win in the prestigious Ian Ward Trophy competition on 25th August before retaining her title in the Junior championship the next day. 

Emily won the Ian Ward Trophy with an excellent score of 42 points with Harry Chambers finishing second on 37 points. Special mention to Harry who was playing in his first full competition and to finish second was a great achievement. 

The club championship was again a very close contest with Emily narrowly beating sister Ellie by two shots. The nett championship was even closer with just one shot separating the top three juniors. The eventual winner was Blake Smith who shot a nett 72 in very difficult conditions.

Congratulations to Emily and Blake on their success and both are pictured below with their respective trophies.

Seniors vs Nottinghamshire

On Tuesday, August 24th, the Belton Park Seniors were at home again for their biennial friendly match versus the Seniors from The Nottinghamshire.

Although the weather was dry again, the sun never made an appearance, making it a cool breezy day. The match was played on the Ancaster course (holes 19-27, and 1-9).

Unfortunately, Nottinghamshires' Captain David Pearson had to play on his own due to being a player short, which made it a tough match for the visiting team in the first game. With seven wins and one match halved, this was another excellent performance from the Belton team, the result was a Belton Park win by 7 ½ to ½.
