Royal North Devon

This year’s Search for a Star at the Royal North Devon Golf Club saw more than 40 children take part in special challenges set by the club’s professional team.

The challenges were designed to test the competitors all round golf skills, including chipping into umbrellas, pitching into targets and perfecting their swings with driver practice.

The standard was high all round, but the three players who impressed the most over the two days were Josh Salmon, Joe Beer and Lara Buckley.

These three children each receive a scholarship membership at the RND for the next 12 months
