Seniors – Curly Foster Trophy - December 17th

On Tuesday, December 17th 51 Seniors played in the annual pre-Christmas fun competition, the Curly Foster Trophy. The format is an individual Stableford competition played over 15 holes with only 4 clubs, one of which must be a putter.

The conditions were dry (at last!) and the course has stood up well to the huge amount of rain over the past 6 weeks. The greens were in excellent condition considering the temperature and the amount of rain we’ve had recently.

After the competition the Seniors were led by choirmaster Paul Skelton in singing Christmas carols, including a special 12 days of Christmas with words composed by Andrew Cookson. Mulled wine, mince pies and sausage rolls were served and a bottle of whisky was kindly donated by the Seniors Vice Captain Tim Stubbs.

Colin Elstone Charity 2019

On Saturday 7th December 128 players competed in one of Belton Park Golf Club’s most anticipated competitions of the year, with the year’s beneficiaries being Macmillan Cancer Support. The Colin Elstone Bottle Charity AM-AM has been held in its current format for the last 31 years but started in the small way back in 1980.


This competition has now been organised by John Kirkup for the past 6 years and notoriously brings out the best in those competing with a great atmosphere and plenty of Christmas cheer. This year was no different which reflected in the amazing 2 from 4 stableford scores in the breezy conditions.


Before the presentation, Caroline Booth from Macmillan Cancer Support addressed the competitors, thanking them for their generosity and gave an insight of where the money would go.


Newly installed Club Captain Ged O’Reilly and Lady Captain Pam Wiggins were in attendance to congratulate all the winners and present them with their prizes.

1st S Allison, G Taylor, G Tupper and J Baxter 95pts

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