It is more than 100 years since the inauguration of the Northern Counties Cup competition.  Royal Aberdeen initiated the contest which was first held at Balgownie in 1900, and this annual inter-club team of four foursomes competition is still as prestigious and keenly contested now as it was then.
Teams from the counties of Aberdeen, Banff, Caithness, Inverness, Kincardine, Moray, Nairn, Orkney & Shetland, Ross & Cromarty and Sutherland, are eligible to compete. 
The venues are, in rotation, Royal Aberdeen, Nairn, Tain, Peterhead,  Royal Dornoch and Moray.

At the 450 yard 14th hole Anthony Bews of Murcar holed his second shot to bring it back to 3 down but with Moray’s first string being 5 up at the 15th the game was all over.
