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.
