Belton Park Juniors win South Lincs League

On Wednesday the18th August, teams from Belton Park, Belton Woods, Spalding, and Stoke Rochford contested the South Lincs Junior League final at South Kyme Golf Club. The standard of golf on display was excellent and all juniors did their respective clubs proud. 

Marcus Wildblood and Captain Emily Horsted were outstanding in the two lead-off groups, both winning all their matches to give Belton Park six wins on the board. James Hayle won one of his three matches but narrowly lost both the others on the last hole. The last group was equally as tight, and Ellie Horsted held her nerve to secure the one victory required to give Belton Park the title.

After four years without a junior team in the league, this was a great achievement, and we now go on to represent the South League in the County final at Waltham Windmill on the 26th of September. 

We would like to make a special thanks to all the Belton Park Golf Club members who came along to support the Junior.

Seniors’ vs Spalding – 17th August

 The Belton Park Seniors were back on home turf on Tuesday, August 17th for their friendly match versus Spalding Seniors. 

On a cold wet morning, the outlook was not great but, by the time the first game tee’d off, the rain had stopped and thankfully didn’t return. However, the cool, windy conditions were very challenging for both teams.

The Belton team won the first two games and Spalding won the next three, so with three games to go, things weren’t looking too good for the home team! However, the last three games were all wins for Belton, so the final match result was a 5-3 win for Belton Park. The Seniors remain unbeaten at home!

After the post-match lunch, Spalding Captain Neil Wilkinson said how impressed he and his team were with the presentation and excellent condition of the course, especially the greens which were very smooth and true. Neil also thanked the catering staff for an excellent lunch.

Lady Past Captain's Trophy

On a very sunny day at the beginning of August, eighteen of the Lady Past Captains of Belton Park Golf Club played a Stableford competition for the prestigious Trophy presented by former Captain, Mona Burgess, in 1987.

After play, a further four Lady Past Captains joined the group for an excellent buffet meal before the presentation was made to the winner.  This was a great opportunity for everyone to spend time together and reminisce after such a long period of living with Covid restrictions.

Former Captains were recognised as ‘trail blazers’ for the Ladies Section back in the 1990s when equal playing rights were secured, and Ladies also had the opportunity to become voting members on the Club Management Committee.

The result of the main, 18-hole, competition:

1st    Place, and the overall winner, was last year’s Lady Captain, Pam Wiggins, with 37 points.

2nd   Place went to Joy Stepney, Lady Captain in 2015, with 36 points.

3rd    Place was Shelley McClelland, Lady Captain in 2007, with 34 points.

The result of a 9-hole competition, played in conjunction with the main event, was a joint win for Joan Craft and Alice Epton, Lady Captains in 1985 and 2012respectively.

Brabazon Trophy

On Tuesday the 10th of August our very own Jack Diment and Harry Glenn took part in the Largest amateur stroke play tour in Europe, the Brabazon. Both men put on an impressive performance qualify for the grand final at Ganton Golf Club between the 19th and 22nd of August. Everyone at Belton Park Golf Club wishes them the best of luck!

Seniors vs Torksey - August 11th

In their first away match for several weeks, the Belton Park Seniors traveled to Lincoln Torksey for the return fixture on Wednesday, August 11th. After losing at Belton Park in the home fixture, Lincoln Seniors put out a very strong team.

On a beautiful sunny and warm day, the course was in immaculate condition with smooth, fast greens, and there were some very close games. With 4 results in, Belton had one win and 3 games were halved. With 2 more wins and 2 losses, the final result was a 4½ to 3½ away win for the Belton Park team. The Lincoln course has certainly benefitted from the installation of a full irrigation system.
