Seniors Match vs Sleaford (home) – Tuesday, June 29th

On Tuesday the 29th of June, Belton Park Seniors welcomed the Seniors from Sleaford Golf Club for the return friendly match. Belton had already won the away fixture, and Sleaford fielded a strong team hoping for a better result away.

We played the Brownlow course (1-18) which was in superb condition after the recent rain and sunshine. However, the weather was not very sunny on the day with a cool breeze and overcast skies. Fortunately, we stayed dry!

The Captain and Vice-Captain both won their matches 6&5 and 5&4 respectively and it wasn’t until match 7 that the Sleaford team managed a win. With one match halved, the result was a 6½ to 1½ win for Belton Park.
