Ladies Captain Yvonne Bashford
I am very honoured and privileged to be elected as the Ladies Captain at Belton Park Golf Club for 2022 and I very much appreciate the many good wishes and support from my fellow members. I extend a very warm welcome to our members, guests and visitors to our club in the coming year
Our club was founded in 1890 and lies within the spacious parkland of the historic National Trust estate of Belton House. The golf club is one of the finest golf courses located in the East Midlands with a unique 27 attractive and challenging holes, set in 240 acres of the heart of Lincolnshire.
Belton is a friendly and inclusive club and the Ladies section warmly welcomes players of any standard running competitions to suit all handicaps. We are proactive in integrating new members within the section and there will always be someone to show you the
ropes and point you in the right direction. As Captain, I look forward to meeting and playing with current and new members.
Ladies day is every Tuesday and as of this year, alternate day competitions will be run at weekends to accommodate working ladies and Juniors, offering 9 and 18 hole competitions on both days, to include many of the major trophy competitions. Ladies can also play in Saturday mixed medal and Stableford competitions during the summer.
Ladies friendlies and mixed matches are played throughout the summer months against other clubs, playing alternate years home and away. We have 2 teams in the Lincolnshire Ladies League divisions 1 and 2, subject to individuals’ handicaps. We also participate in many national competitions.
Belton Park has a well-earned reputation for great hospitality and conviviality so visitors can be sure of a very warm welcome from staff and members alike. Our 3 courses are in great condition and provide a true challenge for golfers of all skill levels.
I wish you well for the coming year and look forward to welcoming you on the fairways and in the clubhouse, fingers crossed, we are able to compete in all of our planned activities uninterrupted and in a safe and controlled manner.
