Course status on Monday 27 May: Green fee £60.00/£45.00/£30.00
This is the first time in the history of the competition that Forres has triumphed.
This prestigious trophy (played as an inter club foursomes event) was first played for at Balgownie in 1900. Teams from the counties of Aberdeen, Banff, Caithness, Inverness, Kincardine, Moray, Nairn, Orkney & Shetland, Ross & Cromarty and Sutherland are eligible to compete.
In what was a tough draw, Forres triumphed against some clubs that had won the cup in recent times including the previous years winners Moray. Forres defeated Peterhead 1 at the 19th and in the next round defeated Nairn 2 up. They then defeated Cruden Bay 1 up before winning their semi-final 2 up against last years winners Moray 1. In the final Forres won 4 up against Moray 2. A copy of the draw/results is available here.
Congratulations to Jeff Wright, Matty Wilson, Bryan Fotheringham and Robert McKerron for such a great achievement.
