Belton Park Supporting Local Charities

On Monday 10th June Belton Park Captain Simon Denton presented two local charities with cheques for £2000 each following the successful Charity fund-raising event held at Belton Park Golf Club in May.

Receiving a cheque on behalf of Parkinson's UK was Raymond Flack, Chairman of the Grantham Branch and he was accompanied by fellow committee member, Mos Kalbassi.

The second cheque was presented to Lyn Copley and Ryan Jewitt  from the local branch of St Barnabus Hospice. 

They all thanked the club for their continued efforts in raising much needed cash for their respective charities and emphasised how important these donations are to them.

The Captain gave special thanks to Mick Sims and Richard Brighton (both pictured) who along with Charles Hine organised the fund-raising event this year. Simon gave recognition of the tremendous amount of time, dedication and effort that all three Belton Park members had put in to making the event such a success. The date for next year’s Charity event is Friday 8th May.

First hole-in-one for Marjie Thompson!

Congratulations to Marjie Thompson who recently scored a hole in one on the 24th par 3 at Belton Park in the Brunyee Trophy. Anyone who has played at Belton Park knows how difficult it is to hit this green, let alone score a hole in one, will recognise what a great achievement this was. Marjie used a Callaway ball and recorded this great achievement on the HowdidIdo competition web site.

Belton Park Ladies win again in The Tasker Trophy!

On Friday 31st May, seven ladies and their caddies travelled to Lutterworth Golf Club near Leicester for the next round of their first year playing in The Tasker Trophy. Played in lovely sunshine on what is a brilliant, but challenging, course they triumphed again, winning by a small margin of 4-3.

Captain for the day, Anna Clark, says….."The course is a little gem to play and the Lutterworth Ladies were lovely hosts. A very enjoyable but tight match, clinched by last lady out Joy Stepney".

The Ladies have been drawn away again in the next round and play a team from Ashbourne Golf Club later in June.

Mid-week Competition Results - June 5th

A fantastic field of 145 golfers at Belton Park competed on Wednesday, June 5th last for 4 trophies; The Middlemans Cup & Driver plus (Nett & Gross prizes) the Long Handicap cup & Peter Lee cup (Nett & Gross prizes). 

95 of the competitors were eligible to compete for the Middlemans as they held handicaps of 10 to 17 with the remainder competing for the Long Handicap trophies as they held handicaps of 18 or greater. 

There was a keen breeze which led to quite a chilly day which did not deter the winning golfers of Dean Griffiths (Middlemans Cup - Nett prize), Nigel Rodway (Middlemans Driver – Gross prize) and Charles Cotton (taking both the Nett and the Gross prizes in the Long Handicap competition).  The ‘2’s sweep was divided amongst 14 golfers.

The golfers were competing for the Victory Cup with the team of James Anderton and Jackie Wilson winning with 42 points closely followed by Grace & Sean Hale (who were beaten on countback) and Paula & James Marshall on 41 points. 

The 2s sweep was shared by teams of Annette Fordham/Nigel Evans and Richard Brighton/Jane Renfrew.
