Belton Park win the Bramley Singles Trophy

On Sunday 18th August, the Belton Park First team travelled to Seacroft to take on Woodhall Spa and Cleethorpes in the final of the Bramley Singles Trophy competition. Representing Belton Park were Jack Diment, Chris Haynes, and Matt Haynes in this prestigious event. It was a lovely day but a strong wind made it very difficult for the players.

The morning matches were very tight and at the halfway stage the result was difficult to predict. In the afternoon the Belton players really turned on the style with some superb golf which Woodhall and Cleethorpes simply could not match. Matt Haynes led the way with two emphatic victories beating Les Toyne from Woodhall Spa 6&5 and Jay Kirkum from Cleethorpes 9&7. Chris Haynes also had an emphatic win against Leon Leaney from Woodhall Spa by 6&5 and having been two down against John Jarrel from Cleethorpes he turned the game around to win by one hole. This meant that Jack Diment needed to win one game to secure the title. In a superb match the lead constantly changed hands until Jack finally secured a 3&2 victory over Paul Wharton from Woodhall Spa.

For the first time in the competition every competitor was either a County player or senior County player so for Belton to retain the Trophy was an outstanding achievement. Final score was Belton Park 5, Cleethorpes 3 and Woodhall Spa 1.

Chris, Matt, and Jack now go on to represent Belton Park in the Champion Club of England tournament at Romford Golf Club in September. It is the first time we have ever reached the final and although it won’t be easy, if the boys play as well as they did at Seacroft then we have a great chance of being Champion Club of England.

In addition, Jack is representing Belton Park Golf Club and Lincolnshire in the National Amateur championship at Frilford Heath. A great time for our first team players, and we wish them well in both finals.

Seniors Victorious over Spalding 6½ - 1½

On Tuesday, August 20th the Seniors hosted the return friendly match against Spalding Seniors. The match was played in great spirits with plenty of friendly banter. Judging by the laughter during the post-match lunch, everyone enjoyed the day.

The weather was kind, with a light breeze and some sunshine, and the course was in excellent condition with well-defined fairways and smooth fast greens.

After the lunch, Spalding Captain Peter Julien thanked the catering staff and the greens staff for the excellent meal and the presentation of the course. The final result was a good win for Belton Park by 6½ - 1½ , which was revenge for the defeat by the same margin at the away match back in July!

Ladies Win Regional Final to play at St. Andrews in National Foursomes Final

Jackie Wilson and Helen Long are celebrating their win at the regional final of the R&A Coronation Foursomes at Market Rasen. The pair will now go forward to the National Final at St Andrews in September.

Jackie and Helen won the Coronation Foursomes at Belton Park in May meaning they qualified for the area final, choosing Market Rasen Golf Club on 9th August for their next round. On a day with terrible rain and a start delayed by 30 minutes due to the weather, they set out to play 18 holes with two ladies from Millfield Golf Club.

After 58 pairs had completed their round Jackie and Helen led the field with 37 stableford points and winning on countback from two ladies from Forest Pines.

They will now play against 15 other pairs from all over the UK on September 9th at St. Andrews.

C Team Beat The Nottinghamshire 4½ - 1½

On Thursday, August 15th the Belton Park C Team welcomed a team from The Nottinghamshire for a home match which was played on a superbly laid out course with clearly defined fairways and fast true greens. 

The C team welcomed back Dave Wing who has not played due to injuries for 9 months. Dave played with C team Captain Ian Carroll in the 1st game, the result is one to try and forget! Dave and Ian played against Notts Club Captain Graeme Chambers (matchplay champion!) and Joe Timmins who holed every putt, whereas the Belton pair did not! Enough said!

The rest of the team were carefully selected from the usual honed athletes which proved to be the master plan! Belton’s 2nd pair of Andy MacGowan and Ian Whyte halved their match on the last hole, well played and well deserved!

The next two games were well won, Simon Denton & Kevin Phillips and John Cooke & Garry Taylor had fantastic results, both winning 6&5. These 4 players will be going on to the best players of the year board. Our 5th and 6th pairs of James Wiggins & Keith Smith and Robb Tapp & Clive Horn both had very close matches, but came out with that crucial 1 up wins, well played!

Seniors Stableford #9 – August 13th

On Tuesday August 13th, 45 Seniors braved strong winds and fast greens to play in the 9th Stableford competition of the year. The competition was played on the Belmont course (holes 10-27) and the greens had been solid tined and rolled, making putting a bit of a challenge in the windy conditions.

The scores were the lowest we’ve seen this year, mainly due to the tough conditions. The winner with 33 points was Tim Stubbs on countback from 3 others, also on 33 points!
