RND Veterans League Round 3 at Saunton

RND vets league at saunton

On a hot and sultry day the latest round of the North Devon Vets League was played on Saunton East Course.The greens were slick and the rough penal. A strong group from RND were looking forward to locking horns with the other 3 teams and a tough battle was expected. They were not disappointed! It was obvious that keeping the ball on the fairways, or at least out of the thick rough was going to be key, and indeed that is how it turned out. Under the watchful eyes of the buzzards wheeling overhead...

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.

saunton NDL

After the challenging scoring conditions at RND in the David Lloyd Salver Medal on Saturday the team headed North across the bay to a fantastically presented East course at Saunton on Sunday 25th April for the opening round of this season’s North Devon League. The strong easterly wind, 16mph but gusting what felt like 40, made keeping the ball in play off the tee and avoiding any treacherous downwind putts on a hard and fast course with some tricky pin positions very challenging.  Chris Stu...

  • One of the country's oldest clubs. Even if you are not playing, just enjoy the fantastic views from the cafe area that looks out towards the Bristol Channel approaches and Lundy island.. wonderful place with wonderful staff.
  • Awesome golf course in an unreal setting and very well maintained, highly recommend playing here if you get the chance. Demanding but fair course that makes you think. If you’re getting a caddie ask for Dave, great guy who knows his stuff
