Saturday 15th July saw 10 men's county teams from across the midlands gather at Belton Park in Grantham to compete to represent the Midlands in the England Men's County Finals in September. The very unsettled July weather made life very difficult.  Torrential rain in the morning flooded many of the greens causing a half-hour delay while green keepers swept up.  Then in the afternoon strong winds made low scoring very difficult.  Northamptonhire finished fifth with a very creditable 737 with Lincolnshire taking the title with a remarkable 706 - four under par.
