The ladies section of Belton Park Golf Club hosted their biggest fund raising event for the Lady Captain’s charities, the local branch of the Samaritans and the South Lincs Blind Society, the Charity Am Am, last Thursday.
The event this year was sponsored by Inchcape, Lexus cars. They donated prizes for ‘holes in one’ on the par three holes on the Brownlow course, holes (1-18). The prizes included a set of golf clubs, a weekend in Portugal and a two night stay for 4 people at the Forest of Arden with golf. However the star prize for a hole in one on the 17th, the longest par 3 at 154 yards from the red tee, was a Lexus 300 car.
Belton Park player, Janni Pask, almost claimed this prize as her drive rolled past the hole within inches leaving a 6 inch tap in for two. Our thanks go to all the members who monitored this hole from 10 o’clock in the morning until almost dusk.

The event attracted a large field, 176 ladies in total entered. We were again blest with fine, warm weather. The head green keeper made sure the course was in excellent condition, cutting and ironing the greens to perfection before play started at 8.40am.
