Seacroft hosted Belton Parks C Team in their 1st inaugural match.
Seacroft's Captain Paul Wilkinson welcomed Belton Parks Captain Ian Carroll and his team of players to a great day of golf played on a lovely warm sunny still day.
Both teams indulged in a full English Breakfast before playing their matches.
The course had a perfect Links feel, dry fairways deep bunkers with lovely fast greens, and no wind.
The club was supported by ladies serving in the halfway house.
Seacroft's Captain was partnered by a 13-year-old junior James Seymour 35 h/c and started by losing their 1st hole but when young James started to get his game together, he shot a nett 56 and
although Belton Parks Captain Ian Carroll partnered by Robb Tapp played exceptionally well and dropped very few shots lost 5&3.
Seacroft's Captain was so impressed with Jamie that the club will enter Jamie’s scorecard for handicap adjustment.
Seacroft was new territory for 5 Belton Parks players, and we will all remember it as 2 players had their 1st ever's - these being Graeme Day achieved his first-ever eagle on a par 5
15th hole (North Pole) but the biggest news was that Russel Clough got his first-ever hole in 1 on the 14th (The Ridge) par 3.
As all the teams returned to the clubhouse it became apparent that everyone enjoyed their matches, but the Seacroft team used their course knowledge taking 1st blood with honors.
Belton Park C team also plays in an “Every Leg counts“ competition to see who will win the best player of the year award. These results are entered onto their individual scores.
