Palairet 2021 - Our best run for many years

RND Palairet Vs Saunton
The team had really high hopes for Palairet Memorial Trophy this year after putting out the current holders Teignmouth in the first round at Tiverton and then beating the strong team of Downes Crediton at Yelverton both matches by the narrow margins of 3.5 - 1.5. The last time we won the trophy, a handicap foursomes matchplay Inter-Devon club knockout was in 1957. The matches are usually one a month starting in April and finishing in September. So it was off to East Devon GC for the third round,...

Home match Vs Weston Super-Mare 2019

westonsm home
The 2019 home match VS Weston Super-Mare was another spectacular affair! Some excellent golf from both teams, as Weston brought 8 out of 12 single figure golfers and no one higher than 13. Home advantage was just enough though as RND fortunately took a 5-1 lead in the morning 4BBB to be pegged back with a 3-3 half in the afternoon Greensomes. Royston's kitchen did us proud twice as usual and the day was such a success that a home and away fixture every year was discussed seriously over plenty of...
