Seniors pull off away win at Peterborough Milton

The Seniors pulled off their first away win of the season at Peterborough Milton on Thursday, June 20th. The Milton course has been improved quite considerably with new revetted bunkers on a number of holes and was in great condition. The match was played in lovely weather (for a change!) and in excellent spirits.

The first pair of Captain Mike Collins and Vice-Captain Pete Long managed a half despite being 3 down after 7 holes! Mike scored an eagle 3 on the par 5 8th hole to get the match back to 1 down at the turn. The pair recovered on the back 9 to achieve a half.

The second pair of Time Stubbs and Bill Brogan won 4&3 after Tim carded a magnificent gross 74, including 4 birdies! The team welcomed Mike Bower back for his first match of the season after recovering from a serious injury, and with John McNally, the pair won 5&4!

After 5 games, Belton were unbeaten, but the last 3 groups lost their matches ending with a great win for Belton Park 4½ to 3½.

Following an excellent lunch, Dennis Santer won a bottle of wine for the nearest the pin on the 11th hole for Belton Park.

Seniors – John Cowe Cup – June 18th

On Tuesday June 18th, 22 Seniors competed in a medal competition for the John Cowe Cup. The John Cowe Cup is the first of two medal competitions where the best combined gross score from this and the Colin Ryan Cup count towards the Ian Lindsay Trophy - the Seniors Scratch Championship.

On a dry and partly sunny day, the course was in fantastic condition which contributed to some excellent nett scores. The winner of the John Cowe Cup was Bill Brogan with a nett score of 67, who received a handicap cut to 12.7.

Lincolnshire Amateur Champion 2019 - Jack Diment

Congratulations to Jack Diment, Will Hopkins, Harry Glen and all the Belton Park players who took part in the Lincolnshire Amateur Championship last Sunday.

Jack, Will and Leon Leaney from Woodhall Spa all carded 138 for 36 holes and went on to play a tense, sudden-death, playoff over three holes (1st, 2nd and 9th) until a winner emerged. After the first three extra holes Leon was eliminated and Jack and Will continued down the 1st once again. 

After two superb shots into the green both Will and Jack had putts for a birdie. Jack sank his attempt and won the hole.


Belton Park players took a number of Trophies and Prizes together with the opportunity to represent the County later in the year.


Belton Park Results:
Jack Diment Winner of the ‘Bloomer Championship Trophy’ and Amateur Champion 2019 
Will Hopkins Runner-up
Will Hopkins Winner, Under 21, The M. Lee Salver

Once again, congratulations to all our players.

Seniors Match vs Rutland Water away – June 17th

On Monday, June 17th the Seniors visited Rutland Water Golf Club for a friendly match in warm and fairly sunny weather which was a welcome change from the recent heavy rain!

The course was much softer than it was last year after a lot of rain in the last week or two. However, the greens were still quite challenging and the final result was a win for Rutland Water 4½ to 3½. This was a far better result than last year’s match which Belton Park lost 8-0!

Graham Secker won a bottle of wine for nearest the pin on the 12th hole after an amazing tee shot!
