North Devon Vets League 1st Round 2024

RND LogoOn Monday 11th March the North Devon Vets League was resurrected with the first round being played at RND. On a beautifully sunny, if rather breezy day seven players each from RND, Holsworthy, Saunton and Torrington teed off on a journey towards the final to be held in August against the winner of a second group comprising Ilfracombe, Mortehoe, Libbaton and Portmore. The format was the best five of seven scores to count. A tight contest was expected and we were not disappointed. Ably led by Captain Ragaii Loka the RND Team proved too strong for the other 3 Clubs and achieved a score of 179 Stableford points from their 5 counting players. Leading the charge was 86 years old Bryan Palmer with an outstanding 40 points finishing with one more than Neil Crossman's excellent 39. Robert Zukowski returned a solid 36 points and Ragaii and David Smith chipped in with 32 points each. Andrew Laugharne and Clive Howard were our discards.

Despite a best score on the day of 41 points by Adrian Granville-Smith, Saunton were beaten into second place on a creditable 170 points with Torrington 3rd on 157 and Holsworthy bringing up the rear on 143. RND take 8 match points forward to the next round at Holsworthy in May, Saunton 6, Torrington 4 and Holsworthy 2.

So a great start to this new competition by our boys and we wish them the best of good fortune for the future rounds
