C team earn a home draw with Sleaford 3-3

Thursday 25th July was a day to remember for the record temperature of over 36 degrees at its peak! The Belton Park c team took on the Sleaford C team on an absolutely beautifully finished and presented golf course, the Brownlow course (holes 1-18).

The heat took its toll on all players and drinking copious amounts of water was essential. The first pair, Captain Ian Carroll and Robb Tapp, took on Sleaford Captain Al Pearson and Walt Drayton.  After an up and down front nine, the Belton pair were 1 down at the turn and a birdie on the 10th made the game level. The game had both teams leading until Ian and Robb won 3 on the trot winning the game, the same result as the away match earlier this month.

Games 2 and 6 both went right to the 18th hole, but Sleaford were victorious in both games. In the 3rd game, Colin Mason took on the duty of helping our new young player Viren Panchal (welcome to the C team) play in his first ever match and with some good golf managed to get a half – a big thank you to Colin. 

There seems to have been some confusion in the penultimate game as they played holes 19-27 instead of 10-18! Gents Captain Simon Denton and Kevin Smith were 4 down at the turn and managed to get a half, proving the that “inner nine” is a tough course for visitors!

Sleaford Captain Al Pearson thanked the greenkeeping staff for presenting the course in such excellent condition. A Salmon platter meal was enjoyed for dinner thanks to the catering staff. 

Simon Denton thanked everyone for playing and praised all parties involved with the C team – a big thank you to Simon for making time to play in such a busy year’s schedule.

Seniors draw again at Lincoln Torksey

In their second match in two days, the Seniors visited Lincoln Golf Club for a friendly match on Wednesday, July 31st. The course was under maintenance as the club is installing a new fairway watering system, but the greens were in superb condition. The new watering system wasn’t required on the day as there were frequent heavy showers.

Peter Hancock came in as a last-minute substitute and, with Tiny Holmes, pulled off the best win of the day winning 6&4! The final result was a 4-4 draw, the same result as the home fixture earlier this month at Belton Park. The match was followed by an excellent lunch, the new catering team at Lincoln are doing a superb job.

Seniors victorious over Luffenham Heath 5½ - 2½

In a very busy week for the Belton Park Seniors with two matches in two days, the first fixture was a match against the Seniors from Luffenham Heath on Tuesday, July 30th. The match was played in good spirits on “World Friendship Day” and, with heavy rain and thunder storms threatening, all the groups managed to stay dry!

The greens had been verticut and sanded and were a little slower than normal, which seemed to fool the home team as well as the visitors. Paul Nash played in his first Seniors match and came up against an in-form pair and Belton lost that game 5&4. Seniors Vice-Captain Pete Long, Captain for the day, failed to lead by example, losing 2&1! The biggest win of the day for Belton was the pair of Mike Bower and Derek Bashford, Derek coming in as a last minute substitute and winning their match 5&3!

Following an excellent cold Buffet followed by strawberries and ice cream, Luffenham Heath Seniors Captain, David Fynn, praised the course for its superb condition and thanked the catering staff for an excellent meal.

John Thompson won a bottle of whisky in the heads and tails game.

Lincolnshire Ladies Past Captains - Thursday 25th July

On the warmest day of the year so far, 96 ladies representing hundreds of years of Lincolnshire Past Captains from clubs all over Lincolnshire, attended the annual event to play for the individual trophy and team shield.

Prize winners in the Silver category were; 1st Shelley McClelland with 35 points, 2nd Sheila Mason with 34 points, 3rd Jackie Wilson with 32 points, 4th Julie Hamer with 31 points and 5th Sheilah Mitchell with 30 points.

Ladies Invitation Day - Tuesday 23rd July

In a busy week for the Ladies at Belton Park, there were 2 major events; Ladies Invitation Day and the Lincolnshire Ladies Past Captains competition.

On Tuesday 23rd July ladies from 22 other golf clubs around the UK joined Belton Park ladies at their annual invitation day. The weather was great and not too hot, unlike later in the week.

An 18-hole stableford competition took place with additional prizes for nearest the pins and best front nine and best back nine. The winning lady from Belton Park wins The Enid Burnett trophy, presented by David Burnett in honour of his wife.

The winners with 41 points were Jackie Scott from Belton Park and her partner, Jackie Richards, from Stanton- on- the-Wolds golf club. Second, with 41 points (On countback) was Issie Guest from Belton Park and her guest Wendy Stewart from Belton Woods. Third, also with 41 points, were Joy Stepney from Belton Park and her guest Gill Lamming from Sleaford. Best front nine was won by Sandra Pask and A Brightman and Best Back nine was won by Pam Wiggins and Lesley Williams. Winners of the Lucky Dip card were Veronica Rose and her guest Lorrie McGowen from Radcliffe-on-Trent.

Dick Short wins Past Captains Trophy

On Wednesday 17th July, twenty-one past captains competed for the prestigious Past Captains Trophy. In glorious weather the scores were very good and it was very tight at the top with Dick Short eventually emerging the winner with 39 points.

Dick had an excellent round which included four birdies and six pars that pushed last year’s Captain Colin Mason into second place. Colin finished with 38 points one ahead of John McClelland in third.

The competition was followed by an evening meal hosted by this year’s Captain Simon Denton and was finished off perfectly with the traditional passing of the port. Congratulations to Dick on regaining the Trophy he last won in 2006!
