Saturday 18th April saw the start of competitive golf for the 1st and 2nd teams of Belton Park with both teams playing Spalding in the South Lincolnshire scratch leagues. The first team welcomed Spalding to the park whilst the 2nd team travelled to the Surfleet course. The first team enjoyed a winning start to their season with a comfortable 4 ½ to 1 ½ victory. The 2nd team came out on the wrong side of a very tight affair with a narrow defeat by 3 ½ to 2 ½ .
The Belton Park club team also got their season up and running by taking a team of 16 players to Blankney GC on 16 April. After some very tight matches an honourable 4 all draw was the result.
