Seniors’ vs Spalding – 17th August

 The Belton Park Seniors were back on home turf on Tuesday, August 17th for their friendly match versus Spalding Seniors. 

On a cold wet morning, the outlook was not great but, by the time the first game tee’d off, the rain had stopped and thankfully didn’t return. However, the cool, windy conditions were very challenging for both teams.

The Belton team won the first two games and Spalding won the next three, so with three games to go, things weren’t looking too good for the home team! However, the last three games were all wins for Belton, so the final match result was a 5-3 win for Belton Park. The Seniors remain unbeaten at home!

After the post-match lunch, Spalding Captain Neil Wilkinson said how impressed he and his team were with the presentation and excellent condition of the course, especially the greens which were very smooth and true. Neil also thanked the catering staff for an excellent lunch.
