The annual competition to complete the 2019 season for the Ladies and Seniors took place on Thursday 3rd October. Two ladies and two men take part in each team, with a score to count from a lady and man.

All teams managed to avoid the rain and great fun was had by all. Play was followed by a two course meal and an auction for the Lady Captain’s charity The Alzheimer’s society which raised £465.

The winners were Seniors vice-captain Peter Long, Alan Addis, Paula Marshall and Janet Reilly with a score of 91. Seen here with Seniors Captain Mike Collins.

In second place was the team of Captain Simon Denton, Lady Captain, Helen Long, Marjorie Thompson and Mike Bower with a score of 84.

Belton Park C Team Match vs Stanton-on-the-Wolds

This was the last match of the season for the Belton Park C team, playing at home versus Stanton-on-the-Wolds, the 19th match of the year for the C team. 

On a lovely sunny afternoon, after a previous day’s heavy rain, surprisingly the course was open albeit the bunkers were full of water and the greens were quite slow. For this end-of-season match, both teams had increased their team size to 8 pairs each from the usual 6 pairs. This was the 3rd match between these two teams with one win each, so Belton Park hoped the home advantage would help. 

Captain Ian Carroll, partnered by Clive Horn, played against Stanton’s Club Captain Peter Gauntley and Doug Tragheim and, within 2 holes, went 1 down but over the round came back and, by the 13th hole the Belton pair were 4 up and went on to win the match. As his team players hinted later, it was a good win for the Captain so Clive must have played well! 

As the matches and results began to come in, each result changed the final balance so both teams were eager to see the final match return and which team would win. Eventually the last pair of John Cooke and Dish Patel appeared and the Belton Park team were very happy that the result went in favour of Belton Park by 4½ - 3½. 

Stanton’s Captain Peter Gauntley praised the evening meal and Belton Park Gents Captain Simon Denton congratulated Stanton’s club Captain Peter Gauntley and his team for a match played in such a friendly atmosphere.

Champion Club of England Event

Over the weekend of 21st and 22nd September, Belton Park represented Lincolnshire in the Champion Club of England finals. This was the first time in our history that we have qualified for this event and it was a great weekend for Lincolnshire golf.

The team comprised Jack Diment, fresh from the individual event the week previously, Chris Haynes and our Club Champion Matt Haynes. The event was held at Romford Golf Club in Essex and again the weather was very kind except for a couple of showers on Sunday.

A few stray tee shots cost all three of our players on the Saturday from shooting really strong rounds. Scores of +2, +2 and +3 put us at +7 at the halfway stage and in mid table, 12 shots behind the leaders. It was therefore always going to be a tough ask on  Sunday but two strong rounds from Jack and Matt and a steady round from Chris helped Belton finish in the top 10 which was a great result against such strong clubs from across the Country.

We must also thank our supporters who made the time to cheer on the lads and in particular Dick and Josie Short who were there for both days which the lads greatly appreciated.

All three players deserve credit for the way in which they have represented both Lincolnshire and Belton Park Golf Club and we are sure that more success will come for us in National competitions in the future.

The picture shows the team with Gents Captain Simon Denton and our excellent caddies Dave Carter and Mick Green.

C Team win at Stoke Rochford 3-2

The Belton Park C team had a busy week so only 5 pairs travelled to Stoke Rochford for their away match. Stoke Rochford were keen to avenge their defeat at Belton Park earlier in the season, so the match was setup for a quite a battle!

The course was in good condition with true greens. The top game in the match was led by Captain Ian Carroll, partnered by Stewart Boylan, but alas the pair fell short, losing 2&1. In game 2, Jim Wiggins and Robb Tapp came good levelling the match. The 3rd and 4th games were also won by the Belton team, but the last game was won by Stoke making the overall match score a 3-2 win for Belton Park.
