C Team AM-AM - Sunday, October 27th

On a glorious sunny Sunday, the Belton Park C team event consisted of 12 3-man teams playing a Waltz format of competition on the Brownlow course (1-18). The halfway house was manned by 3 lovely ladies; Jinny, Pat, and Veronica, with delicious cakes and savouries and drinks either spirited or not!

The course was in great condition after a previous day of heavy rain which is a testament to the efforts of our greenkeepers. 

The match was followed by a 2-course meal with coffee and mints. 

Tom Green presented us with an individual photographic slideshow of how we all tee’d off on the 1st hole on an overhead projector during dinner - some good and some not so good!

The C team’s best player of the year award went to a new member of the club, Alec Sherwin, who helped us win throughout the season. He received the C Team trophy and a solid silver lapel badge. 

Gents Captain Simon Denton thanked all who played in the event and the ladies in the halfway house who fed us so well. He thanked the C team Captain, Ian Carroll, for organising the event. 

C team Captain, Ian Carroll, said “I would like to say big thanks to all our C team players this year and, we can be proud that we didn’t lose at home this year. We played 20 - won 12, drew 4, and lost 4 so not a bad record!”

Belton Park C Team Match vs Stanton-on-the-Wolds

This was the last match of the season for the Belton Park C team, playing at home versus Stanton-on-the-Wolds, the 19th match of the year for the C team. 

On a lovely sunny afternoon, after a previous day’s heavy rain, surprisingly the course was open albeit the bunkers were full of water and the greens were quite slow. For this end-of-season match, both teams had increased their team size to 8 pairs each from the usual 6 pairs. This was the 3rd match between these two teams with one win each, so Belton Park hoped the home advantage would help. 

Captain Ian Carroll, partnered by Clive Horn, played against Stanton’s Club Captain Peter Gauntley and Doug Tragheim and, within 2 holes, went 1 down but over the round came back and, by the 13th hole the Belton pair were 4 up and went on to win the match. As his team players hinted later, it was a good win for the Captain so Clive must have played well! 

As the matches and results began to come in, each result changed the final balance so both teams were eager to see the final match return and which team would win. Eventually the last pair of John Cooke and Dish Patel appeared and the Belton Park team were very happy that the result went in favour of Belton Park by 4½ - 3½. 

Stanton’s Captain Peter Gauntley praised the evening meal and Belton Park Gents Captain Simon Denton congratulated Stanton’s club Captain Peter Gauntley and his team for a match played in such a friendly atmosphere.
