Seniors win away at Market Rasen

On Thursday, August 8th the Seniors from Belton Park travelled to Market Rasen for a friendly match. The match was indeed very friendly and everyone enjoyed the course, the excellent hospitality and the food after the match. The weather on Thursday was superb; warm and sunny, a big contrast to the home fixture earlier in the year which was cancelled due to bad weather.

The course is still recovering from the hot summer of 2018, but the greens were very smooth having been ironed with the new greens iron.

Captain Mike Collins, fresh from his holiday, and his partner Dave Martin led the charge with a good win. The second pair of Pete Long and Gary Hill fought back from 3 down at the turn to all square going up the 18th until the Market Rasen Vice Captain Steve drained a 60ft putt for a birdie 2 on the last hole! However, the overall result was an excellent away win for the Belton Park team 5-3, the second away win of the season!
