Winter foursomes trophy
  This winter will see the return of the RND Winter Foursomes order of merit, where players earn points based on their finishing position in each of 5 events scheduled from November to March (dates below).

Solid Selection policy leads to promotion The 2019 season kicked off in March with Royal North Devon hosting the first round of matches, with a team of mainly low handicappers and in tough conditions we ran out the winners by a considerable margin with Captain Shaun Loze top scoring on the day with 33 points pipping Ethan Jeffery on countback  winning the first individual trophy of the season also.

Home match Vs Weston Super-Mare 2019

westonsm home
The 2019 home match VS Weston Super-Mare was another spectacular affair! Some excellent golf from both teams, as Weston brought 8 out of 12 single figure golfers and no one higher than 13. Home advantage was just enough though as RND fortunately took a 5-1 lead in the morning 4BBB to be pegged back with a 3-3 half in the afternoon Greensomes. Royston's kitchen did us proud twice as usual and the day was such a success that a home and away fixture every year was discussed seriously over plenty of...

In the end we managed to play 4 time...
