TEAM NAIRN DUNBAR

Our Nairn Dunbar team consists of William A Barron, Brian A Watson, Freddie Brown and Graham Burnett.

 

NORTHERN COUNTIES CUP 

The year 1899 was memorable for two reasons.  Firstly, and obviously ,it was the year Nairn Dunbar Golf Club was formed and secondly it was the year that all the golf clubs in the old Counties of Kincardine in the South to the Shetland Isles in the North were invited to take part in a golf competition on the Balgownie Links in the summer of 1900.  The Aberdeen Club went on to suggest that the participating clubs contribute a sum of two guineas towards the purchase of a cup, and the clubs who contributed would then meet to decide on a course for the following year.

 

Eight clubs donated to the purchase of a cup – Aberdeen, Dornoch, Inverness, Moray, Nairn, Orkney, St Duthus and Victoria.  All are still in existence apart from the Victoria Club and St Duthus, which is now Tain Golf Club.

Apart from the war years the Cup has been played for since 1900 and it is recognised as being one of the oldest golf team competitions around.  The competition is in the form of a knockout made by a draw with teams of four playing foursomes over eighteen holes where the team with the best aggregate holes-up going forward to the next round.  The players participate not for individual vouchers and prizes but for the honour of representing their Club – the winners do, however, collect a treasured gold medal for their efforts.

 

This year’s event was staged at Royal Dornoch Golf Club, celebrating 400 years of golf in Dornoch, and attracted a very healthy entry of thirty five teams of the finest golfers.  Nairn Dunbar has been competing in this competition for many years with limited success.  However recent results have been more promising with an appearance in the semi-final and, last year at Peterhead Golf Club the team was narrowly defeated at the 20th hole in a nail biting final against Nairn Golf Club.

 

Having come so close in 2015 the same team was given the opportunity to ‘go one better’ this year and that is exactly what they did!  The road to victory was long and challenging to say the least with victories recorded along the way against Duff House Royal, Forres, Fortrose and Rosemarkie, Banchory and Royal Aberdeen – that’s a lot of golf, long straight drives and holed putts and, of course, having to deal with the odd three putt or mis-directed approach shot - but deal with it they did.  The winning team representing the Club was William Barron, Graham Burnett, Brian Watson and Freddie Brown – well done boys you have made Nairn Dunbar history! It has only taken 116 years to win this prestigious trophy and the team is to be warmly   congratulated on this massive achievement.  Here’s hoping it’s the first of many!
