Visitor and New member Information:
There is a strong ladies section at Royal North Devon with over a 100 lady members of which there are 70 active playing members who regularly enter the ladies competitions on a Thursday morning between 7.45 and 10.45. Tee times can be booked on-line and competition results are posted on-line the same day.
There are internal competitive knockout matches, both singles and greensomes which result in the winners receiving Trophies and credits on the Boards of Honour.
As a thriving section we enter various interclub matches: The Still Cup (Scratch Players); The Presidents Cup (Silver Players); The Sheelah Creasey Bowl (Bronze Players); The North Devon League (All Handicaps) and the Devon friendly League (29 – 36 Handicaps). Additionally, the Lady Vets Section arranges friendly matches against other clubs notably Burnham & Berrow; Saunton, Bude and Great Torrington. Twice a year the lady vets enter a competition with the men vets usually held on a Monday morning in March and October.
There are also Mixed Matches which are extremely well supported. This year we have the following hosts and venues booked: Saunton; Holsworthy; St Enodoc; Enmore Park; Great Torrington and Launceston. These matches are followed by a meal which is enjoyed by all and a great opportunity to forge new golfing friendships.
We have two main Open Meetings in the year. In May there is a 3 Ball Open competition and in August we have a 2 day Ladies Open Medal (Thursday and Friday). The August Meeting has Scratch and Handicap prizes for each day plus an aggregate prize. On the Thursday afternoon there is an optional 15 hole Greensome competition. Entry forms can be obtained either on-line or by contacting our office on 01237 473817. Visitors are very welcome and many ladies return year after year for a challenge on our wonderful links course.
