Seniors pull off away win at Peterborough Milton

The Seniors pulled off their first away win of the season at Peterborough Milton on Thursday, June 20th. The Milton course has been improved quite considerably with new revetted bunkers on a number of holes and was in great condition. The match was played in lovely weather (for a change!) and in excellent spirits.

The first pair of Captain Mike Collins and Vice-Captain Pete Long managed a half despite being 3 down after 7 holes! Mike scored an eagle 3 on the par 5 8th hole to get the match back to 1 down at the turn. The pair recovered on the back 9 to achieve a half.

The second pair of Time Stubbs and Bill Brogan won 4&3 after Tim carded a magnificent gross 74, including 4 birdies! The team welcomed Mike Bower back for his first match of the season after recovering from a serious injury, and with John McNally, the pair won 5&4!

After 5 games, Belton were unbeaten, but the last 3 groups lost their matches ending with a great win for Belton Park 4½ to 3½.

Following an excellent lunch, Dennis Santer won a bottle of wine for the nearest the pin on the 11th hole for Belton Park.
