Seniors Friendly Match at Stanton-on-the-Wolds – Monday, October 11th

On a bright sunny autumn morning the Belton Park Seniors travelled to Stanton-on-the-Wolds golf club for the rearranged final away friendly match of the season.

The match was eagerly awaited, as it is one of the most popular away venues and the Belton Seniors were keen to finish the season with an away win to follow the 5½ - 2½ home win earlier in the year. It was not expected to be an easy task with Stanton keen for revenge!

Both team Captains were unavailable for this final match, and the Vice-Captains of each team took charge of the proceedings for the day. The course was excellent, with the greens in magnificent condition, without doubt the truest, fastest greens we’ve played on all season.

The match was keenly fought as expected, with five of the games going to the 18th green to decide the result. However, the overall result went Belton Park’s way with another 5½ - 2½ win.

Following the match, both teams enjoyed an excellent chicken lunch. Belton Vice-Captain Tim Stubbs thanked Stanton for their superb hospitality and complimented them on their stunning greens & the excellent post-match meal.
