Seniors Match vs Rutland Water (home) – Tuesday, September 7th.

On Tuesday. September 7th, in glorious sunshine, the Belton Park Seniors welcomed the Seniors from Rutland Water Golf Club for their return match. In the away fixture back in June, the Belton team were victorious, so the Rutland Water team were keen on revenge!

The match was played over the Ancaster course which was in great condition. In the top match, on the first hole, Rutland Water’s Tim Beck chipped in for a net birdie to get things started! The first match was very close but was eventually won by the Belton Park pair 3&1. With 2 more wins and one tied match, at the halfway stage, things were looking good for the home team. With three more wins and only one loss, the result was a 6½ to 1½ win for Belton Park. Belton remains unbeaten at home this season!

After the post-match lunch, Rutland Captain Dave Abbott thanked the greens staff for a beautifully presented course and thanked the catering staff for an excellent lunch.
