Seniors win inaugural home match vs Rufford Park

On Tuesday, July 23rd the Seniors played their inaugural home match versus Rufford Park golf club and pulled off a 5-3 home win. The Rufford Park team were two players short, so the 2 reserves (Ian Askew and Gary Hill) from the Belton Park team stepped in to make up the numbers on a “free transfer” and won their match!

The weather was steaming hot and the course was in lovely condition. After a very seasonal cold buffet lunch, Rufford Park Seniors Captain Jim Sterland thanked the catering team and the Greenkeepers for an excellent day.

Dave Dobney won a bottle of whisky in the “heads and tails” game.
