RND’s “old men” claimed a 3-2 victory in the second leg of their Devon Veterans’ Emmerton Court Trophy game against Libbaton -- but it wasn’t enough. Their 4-1 defeat in the away leg proved to be too much of a hurdle to overcome despite this impressive effort.Captain Simon Hopkins was naturally disappointed but remained upbeat: “It was a very close-run thing and a very exciting, hard-fought battle,” he said. “But the damage was done in the away match. It was a good performance all round but not ...

RND Logo
Simon Hopkins' (now not so) merry men took a 4-1 beating from their local rivals in the Emerton Court Trophy and now face the toughest of tasks in the home leg on June 17th (tee off 12.30pm). "It was a disaster," admitted a downcast but defiant captain, "and we will have to work very hard to get through." Tony Allin and Richard Stubbs proved they can produce the goods when the pressure is on by fighting back from two down to win their match 3&2 but, elsewhere, it was carnage for a RND line-u...

First out was Ruth Horn who won 6/5, Tania won 7/6, Barbara won 8/7, Pauline Marais won 6/5. We then awaited the other matches which were a little tighter. Victoria triumphed 2/1 on the 1...

Parker Trophy Team through first round Vs Tiverton

RND Logo
Round 1 of the Parker Trophy saw RND face Tiverton at Tavistock on Sunday 5th May. A sunny yet breezy day saw us face a young, talented Tiverton side, who brought caddies and spectators along with their players in the club minibus. Pair 1 of Ollie Tanton and Dave Ashley struggled early on, with Ollie the first to admit he had a rare off day with his ball striking. The quality of our two county players shone through though, and going into the 18th with a 1 hole advantage, Ollie hit a good drive a...
