Seniors Match vs Rufford Park (home) – Tuesday, July 20th.

Back on our traditional Tuesday matchday this week, the Belton Park Seniors welcomed a very strong team from Rufford Park. The weather was sweltering hot and sunny, and the Belmont course (10-27) was in superb condition having been prepared for the club championship on the previous weekend. The greens were running at 10 on the Stimpmeter!

This was the first match to be played after “Freedom Day” where most of the Covid restrictions had been lifted and we were back on open tees at last! Things were going well for the Belton team with a win in each of the first 6 matches, including an 8&7 win for Steve Strachan and Howard Lockwood! Rufford managed one win, resulting in a 7-1 win for the Belton team!

After the match, normality was restored as we all dinned together on tables of 8 in the Brownlow suite.
