C Team Match vs Sleaford - July 26th

This was the 13th match of 20 this season, played at home on the Ancaster course which includes the middle 9 holes. This provided an interesting challenge for the away players not familiar with the interesting “middle 9” holes. 

The weather was a very warm humid evening and the halfway hut with ice cold drinks and cold chocolate bars were appreciated by all the players. The course was being threatened with distant thunder storms but no rain fell.

Sleaford were keen to avenge the defeat at Sleaford earlier in the season, but the Belton Park team won convincingly by 5½ to ½.


Captain Ian Carroll & Neil Gray                 Won 2&1
John Cooke & Jim Wiggins                         Won 5&4

Belton Park Captain’s team visit The Leicestershire for annual match

On Wednesday 18th July the Belton Park Captain’s team travelled to “The Leicestershire Golf Club” to contest the sixth annual match for the salver donated in 2013 by the then vice captains of each club Rob Bartlett and Kanti Patel. The Belton Park team consisting of the current and past captains were defending the trophy, having won the previous year at Belton Park.

The weather was pleasantly warm with a short refreshing shower during lunch and just before play. The course, which has recently been extended by the creation of two par 5’s, was in excellent condition with the greens running true and accepting a well-flighted ball. As always, the matches were keenly contested in the true spirit of the game.  Despite two early victories by the current captains, Belton Park lost by 5 games to 2.

After play, both teams had an excellent meal of lamb ribs with a selection of vegetables, followed by a trio of summer fruit puddings. Both captains then spoke, recalling the day’s events, previous matches, club histories, and the fact that both clubs were formed back in 1890.

This victory ties the annual matches at 3 each.

Paula Marshall (Lady Captain) & Helen Long won 1 up against Kathy Hunt (Lady captain) & Lucy Pova
