A strong field of 170 players took part in the John Peberdy cup, the annual any combination am-am, played in memory of John Peberdy, a long-standing and popular member of Belton Park golf club. The cup was presented to the club in 2001 by Judy Peberdy in memory of her husband.
In glorious early September sunshine, the course was immaculate as always, with the greens running particularly well, and the scores reflected the favourable conditions. The halfway hut was well served by the Belton Park ladies and the clubhouse food afterwards was excellent and well received.
The winners, with an excellent 89 points were Steve Glenn, Harry Glenn, David Carter & Mark Loveridge.
In 2nd place with 87 points were Levi Desmond, Jack Diment, Billy Wright & Aaron Kay, on countback from Mark Cooper, Tom Cooper, Ross Overton & Jake Craddock (3rd place), then Olly Mitchell, Steve Mitchell, Bruce MacFarlane & Joe Clayton (4th place) and Darren Wright, Rob McGregor, David Reddish & Tommy Anderson (5th place).
In 6th place with 86 points were Peter Drechsler, Keith Oswin, Nigel Turner & Peter Barson.
The prizes were presented by captain Derek Bashford, Ladies captain Sue Hall and Richard Peberdy, who paid tribute to his father and also complimented Belton Park golf club on the course and facilities.
