After a valiant effort to get to the finals of the Palairet Trophy, Torrington were knocked out in the Finals by Fingle Glen, who went on to beat Dainton Park 5:0 to take the trophy.  Torrington came a creditable third, ahead of Tiverton.

Well done to all those who played for the Club. 


On Sunday August 6th the Mens' Section retained the North Devon League title at Portmore after 5 Stableford rounds against Portmore, RND, Saunton and Libbaton.  In A[pril we followed a 2nd place at RND with a win on home turf to lead the League and solid performances at Saunton, Libbaton and finally Portmore, maintained our position and, finally, victory on Sunday. 

The Captain and Club wish to thank all those players who dedicated their time and money to play for the team and make this back-to-back win possible against some very good opposition: 

Bob Gillespie, Euan Gillespie, Mike Powe, David Garrett, Chris Sturmanm, Mark Coles, Reece Andronik, Alfie Stevens, Paul Wheeler, Mike Trengove, Lloyd Weeks, Dan Copp, John Smith, Paul Boundy, Rob Ware and Mike McLeod. 

Thank you and well done to everyone who played and supported during this League campaign. 

Finally, on Sunday July 30th the Great Torrington team beat Woodbury Park at Bovey Castle (3-2) in the Quarter Final of the Palairet Memorial Trophy to advance to the Finals on August 20th, to be held at Tavistock Golf Club.  We will play Fingle Glen in the morning and, if successful, will play a further 18 holes in the afternoon against the other semi-finalist winners. 

We would welcome any sup;port and/or caddies for the day, as we try to emulate our success back in 2008. 

Thanks to everyone, 


PALAIRET 1st Round
