Seniors Captain's Day

On Tuesday July 6th, The Seniors at Belton Park Golf Club played in the Seniors Captain’s Day. The weather forecast was not great, but we were very lucky to dodge the heavy downpours!

15 teams of 4 competed in a Florida scramble and 4 players took part in a 9-hole individual Stableford competition. Each player was presented with a “goody bag” on the first tee.

Complementary refreshments were served in the halfway hut, by the Seniors Captain’s wife Helen, the Vice-Captain’s wife Jan and the Gent’s past Captain’s wife Jane. Refreshments included the Lincolnshire delicacy of plum bread and cheese.

There was a prize draw which raised £355 for the Captain’s two charities, the Alzheimer’s Society and the Grantham Passage.

The Florida scramble format is very similar to a Texas scramble and teams need to think hard about their strategy to make the best use of their shots. There were some excellent scores, and the results were as follows:

Florida Scramble:



Dave Martin / John McNally / Rob Gullis / David Nock



Ian Carroll / Jim Wiggins / Ian Askew / Alan Addis  



Mike Collins / Dave Fernie / Tim Stubbs / Keith Bowers       



Nearest the pin on the 14th – Mike Bower

Nearest the pin on the 21st – Dave Lewis


9-hole Stableford:



Ken Reilly        

15 points


Tom Green   

15 points (OCB)
