Golf club to negotiate 26th August 1960
At the annual meeting of the Royal North Devon Golf Club the following resolution was unanimously passed with regard to its lease, as Lords of the Manor of Northam Burrows.
Northam Council first enquired of the Lords of the Manor (appointed by the Golf Club) in July 1959 whether the Club was interested in assigning the residue of its lease to the Council to enable them to exercise some measure of control over the Northam Burrows. The lease has 10 years to run to complete its 200 years' term. Mr John Phillips, is one of the Lords of the Manor.
