william newbyI started golf at Royal North Devon when I was 10 years of age and I am currently studying for AS Levels at Bideford College.

Having started at junior level I now play in general club competitions as well as representing the Club in matches around Devon.

As part of my Duke of Edinburgh award I asked if I could do something to help with coaching on a voluntary basis and this has continued. I spend most Saturday and Sunday mornings assisting Josh Salmon with the younger players, helping with set up and group sessions which I enjoy. There is no doubt that doing this has helped my golf as well. I recently completed a Golf Activators course which does mean that if the opportunity arises I can run beginner level sessions at the Club.

I was made Junior Captain in 2021, and have continued the role in 2022. It is something I am very proud to do and I have been especially pleased to lead our junior teams in two annual matches against the Club Veterans with the juniors winning on both occasions.
