Presentation night for seniors at Belton Woods Golf Club





Three surprise presentations were made at the farewell dinner for the seniors' captain at Belton Woods Golf Club.

Andy Wood is stepping down from the helm after his year in office and the event was extremely well attended by the seniors membership and their partners and guests.

He handed out three specially engraved plaques that were personally made by the club's past treasurer Richard James at the Belton Woods Hotel, Spa and Golf Resort.

The first was an engraving on slate to head greenkeeper Sam Pigott for his exemplary 30 years of service to course maintenance and structure.

The second, an oak engraved open book and the Claret Jug Trophy, went to Andy Davidge on becoming the Golfer of the Year for the second year running.

Finally, another engraving on slate, went to Mike Whitington in recognition of his continuous and invaluable contribution to the success of the seniors' group over the years as both captain and mentor.

The evening ended a memorable year for departing captain Andy whose reign came at the same time as he and his wife Joy celebrated their 50th Golden Wedding anniversary during the season.

For his particular charity this year, Andy had specifically chosen St Barnabas for personal reasons.

As a result, he decided that all the money raised throughout his year of captaincy would go to the hospice in the Grantham Hospital.

He finished by thanking everybody for their amazing generosity and kindness shown throughout the last year which helped raise an astonishing £3,618.

Raffle tickets on the night were sold in aid of the new captain's charity, Prostate Cancer, and £435 was raised.

Alan then delivered his final slam of the gavel for the evening and called upon Roy Sanders, the captain for 2024, to present his wife Joy with a bouquet of flowers.
