Seniors Captain’s Welcome
I am honoured to have been elected Captain of Belton Park Seniors Section for 2018 - 2019. I, along with Peter Long, my Vice-Captain, and the rest of the Seniors committee aim to continue to provide a relaxed and sociable environment in which in which our members can enjoy their golf.
Belton Park Seniors were formed in 1975 to provide members who have reached the age of 55 the opportunity to meet, relax, and enjoy a mix of social and competitive golf with new and long-standing friends. We currently have approximately 100 members who enjoy golfing and social events at our great club.
We meet on Tuesday mornings, when the club has kindly granted us reserved tee times, and play a variety of formats designed to appeal to golfers of all abilities. There is also an “unofficial” Seniors rollup on a Thursday morning. Additionally, throughout the summer, there are matches against senior teams from other clubs in the local area. Our full programme of events can be found in the Club Diary. There is a small annual subscription of £5.
We also aim to cooperate closely with other sections of the club, particularly the Belton Park Ladies section with whom we have two mixed events in our calendars. We ask our members, whenever and wherever they are playing, to observe the etiquette of golf, support the objectives of our golf club, and maintain the facilities to the usual standards at Belton Park.
My charity this year is the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance, based at RAF Waddington and covering the whole of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire. We aim to raise funds throughout the year to support this truly worthwhile organisation which depends solely upon charitable donations to meet an annual budget of around £4 million.
Should you join us, I and all the members of Belton Park Seniors assure you of a very warm welcome. If you see me around the club please do not hesitate to say hello and enquire about membership. You can also pick up an application form from the office or simply come along on a Tuesday and ask any member of the Seniors committee. Finally, may I wish you all a happy and successful golfing year.
