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!

Seniors win inaugural home match vs Rufford Park

On Tuesday, July 23rd the Seniors played their inaugural home match versus Rufford Park golf club and pulled off a 5-3 home win. The Rufford Park team were two players short, so the 2 reserves (Ian Askew and Gary Hill) from the Belton Park team stepped in to make up the numbers on a “free transfer” and won their match!

The weather was steaming hot and the course was in lovely condition. After a very seasonal cold buffet lunch, Rufford Park Seniors Captain Jim Sterland thanked the catering team and the Greenkeepers for an excellent day.

Dave Dobney won a bottle of whisky in the “heads and tails” game.

C team earn home draw 3-3 with Melton Mowbray - July 18th

Belton Park C team entertained golfing friends from Melton Mowbray on a gorgeous warm sunny Thursday afternoon. The course was in immaculate condition with fabulous fairways and greens, and a pleasure to be competing on. 

Captain Ian Carroll, partnered again by Ian Whyte, played well but never capitalised on the putting and went down to Melton’s Captain Adrian Green and Ady Stokes. 

The 2nd pair of James Wiggins and Garry Taylor made up the deficit with a win, then bad news came from our 3rd pair John Clark and Alec Sherwin who battled hard but lost. This scenario continued on to the last game, making the match halved, 3-3. 

This week the 3 winning pairs went on to the best players of the year table and special thanks go to our last pair, Ken and Andy, as they both came in as late subs and won their game to halve the match. 

A big thanks to our green keepers for presenting us with a great course and to our kitchen staff for feeding us so well and we bid a sad farewell to Dan who has catered for us for 5 years on the tables - good luck on your new travels in Scotland.

Mixed team win away match at Newark - July 19th

On Friday 19th July the Belton Park mixed team played Newark Golf Club at Newark and pulled off an excellent 6½ to 1½ away win.

The weather forecast was not very good with rain forecast for most of the afternoon and thunderstorms predicted. On the day the team were very fortunate with the weather, it did rain, but not all of the time.

After a most enjoyable meal the Club Captain of Newark made a most amusing speech welcoming all the Captains and Vice Captains from Belton Park – we are not sure who he actually played with but it didn’t seem to be the Lady Captain from Belton Park! – even so they had a most enjoyable round.

Simon Denton, Belton Park Gents Captain, responded in an equally amusing way, thanking Newark for their hospitality and praising the course and the catering staff.  He eventually remembered to announce the result which was six and a half against one and a half in favour of Belton Park.

A really most enjoyable afternoon and evening.

C Team v Sleaford C Team - lost 4-2

This match was played away on a warm afternoon and has a twist! Due to an admin error in our office, a 13th C team player attended (1 too many) and when Sleaford's Captain stated they were a player short - we did the honourable thing and offered our 13th player “Keith Smith” on a free transfer to make up their team!

Unfortunately for Belton Park it turned out that Keith’s part was pivotal in the match as he turned up with his A game and, partnered by Tony Cook from Sleaford, went on to beat Belton Park’s 4th pair, Clive Horn and Chris Hides 4&2!

The first pair was a duet of Ian’s (Carroll and Whyte) who started well, but went 2 down then fought back to level on the 9th hole, and eventually won over the 18 holes and went on to the best player of the year award.

All the team played well on lovely greens, but the fairways were very dry with lots of run on them. Gents Captain Simon Denton showed our new Team player Kevin Smith the act of coming second in gracious style!
