Golf Industry News - Royal North Devon (Westward Ho!)

Royal North Devon Golf Club has become the first club in the UK to ban the use of plastic tees on its course. From January 1, 2020, the Devonshire club’s pro shop will sell only wooden tees, with extra tee bins to be provided around the course to discard the inevitable increase in broken tees.

The oldest golf shop in the world reopens today at the birthplace of the game and features a display of some original pieces of furniture which belonged to Tom Morris
