Seniors vs Stanton-on-the-Wolds – May 28th

On Tuesday, May 28th the Seniors at Belton Park played host to the Seniors team from Stanton-on-the-Wolds Golf Club. On a beautiful sunny day, the match was played in excellent spirits on the Belmont course (holes 10-27) which was very lush after the recent rain.

The Seniors team was captained on the day by Vice Captain Pete Long as the Seniors Captain was on holiday. Unfortunately, the Captain for the day didn’t lead by example, losing 2 down and Belton lost the first 2 games. However, Belton rallied and the final result was another 5½ to 2½ win for the Belton Park Team.

Stanton-on-the-Wolds Captain Richard Mercer thanked the catering staff for an excellent meal, and the greens staff for preparing the course in such lovely condition. John Thompson won a bottle of whisky in the “heads and tails” game after the meal.
