The Ladies Committee 2018
Denise Ann Evans
150 Years of Ladies Golf at Royal North Devon Golf Club 8th June 1868 – 8th June 2018
The 2018 Committee have been busy putting together a package that hopefully will encompass all members of the Club and encourage many visitors to join us in celebrating this very special year. During our four day event from 7th June – 10th June, there will be competitions for Ladies, Men and Juniors.
The Club is also hosting the Devon Ladies’ Championships in May and the English Ladies’ County Finals over a week in September.
Below are listed some of our many Open Competitions being held this year. It is a good way to play on the oldest course in England, for a very reasonable price! The Ladies of Royal North Devon Golf Club look forward to sharing this year with many of you. For further information on any of these events, please contact the Club.

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 Tiverton. These matches are followed by a meal which is enjoyed by all and a great opportunity to forge new golfing friendships.
Our Lady Captain is Liz McKay. Together with officers of the Ladies Committee are delighted to welcome new members. If you are interested in becoming a member of this unique club or require further information please contact 01237 473817 who will give you the name of the person to contact.
