Seniors Match vs Rutland Water (away) – Monday, June 14th

On Monday, June 14th Belton Park Seniors travelled to Rutland Water Golf Club for their away match. 

The Rutland course was very dry and firm which made it difficult for those not familiar with how the greens run. With lovely sunny weather and a pleasant breeze, the conditions were ideal.

The top two matches were good wins for the Belton team 4&3, with the Captain and Vice-Captain both victorious. After 5 results, Belton were happy to be winning 3½ to 1½. However, with 2 more losses and a win in the final match, Belton were the eventual winners by 4½ to 3½, another good away win!

Mike Collins won a bottle of wine for nearest the pin on the 12th hole, and four of the Belton team scored a two, each winning a golf ball.
