Ladies Stroke Indices Changes

We now have a formal minuted agreement of the Board to change the ladies stroke indices. This has been looked at over several years by a small working party and changes are based on analysis of scoring over that time as well as taking account of England Golf guidelines. When the Club changes to the winter course, 1 November 2022, the stroke indices will come into effect informally, with formal implementation on 1 April 2023.

The draws for 2022 are as follows:

Presidents: East Devon 1, Libbaton, Royal North Devon and Okehampton

Dartmoor Ladies

Nine clubs have signed up for the Dartmoor Ladies.  The format is a mixed team event with ladies being drawn from various clubs around Devon.  It is a fun get together with ladies of all abilities and handicaps up to 36 - the main objective is to have fun.  There are no prizes and there will be no 'order of merit' just the chance to meet new ladies from different clubs and enjoy a game of golf.  


22 August - Sidmouth for a ladies friendly match.
