Palairet Trophy Round 3 Vs Libbaton

saunton west course

Sunday 2nd July saw the much-anticipated 3rd round match between RND and Libbaton Golf Club held on the West Course at Saunton. In the preceding weeks to the fixture the course had been baked by the hot weather we have been having, but a downpour Friday saw the course softened up somewhat. However, what was gained by a softening of the ground was lost again due to the fairly strong wind blowing from the West increasing the difficulty level of what we all know is a pretty tough test of golf. Havi...

The weather was fair for most of the day and the Course was very soft underfoot with slow, but true, greens. With quite a number of the superstar players at RND not available the match provided an opportunity to blood some new talent and employ the pairings wit...
