Seniors vs Newark – May 21st

On Tuesday, May 21st the Seniors played host to the Seniors team from Newark Golf Club. On a warm sunny May day, the match was played in good spirits on the Ancaster course (holes 19-27 and 1-9) which was in excellent condition.

With 5 very close games, the final result was a 5½ to 2½ win for the Belton Park Team.
