Belton Park Captain’s Day was held last Sunday with fabulous weather and a big turnout of 160 players.
This year’s captain, Steve Glenn, has been a member for more than 30 years and is a long-term sponsor of the club.
Many prizes were played for including a Mercedes Cabriolet (for a weekend) supplied by Mercedes Boston for nearest the pin on the 17th hole. There was also a hole-in-one on the day by Steve Chambers on the fourth hole. Twenty-seven ladies also joined in the day, playing a nine-hole Texas scramble. Captain Steve ended the day with the traditional captain’s drive-in.
More than £1,600 was raised on the day for Steve’s two chosen charities for his captain’s year, Lincolnshire Air Ambulance and Gifts-St Barnabas Hospice-Grantham and Sleaford.
Competition winners were Colin Walton, Dan Coyle, Keith Flinders and Jim Wiggins.
