Five golf clubs - Elgin, Forres, Moray,Nairn and Nairn Dunbar, who are all clubs within the North District of the Scottish Golf Union, play annually in inter-club match-play competition in both Scratch and Handicap Leagues. Additionally, Hopeman Golf Club have been an Associate Member of the League since 2004 and play in the Handicap League.

Thomson Shield

The Scratch competition,for the prestigious G. R. Thomson Shield and first competed for in 1948, is played over the second weekend in May every year at one of the member club’s courses on the basis of a five year rotation. This year was the 69th playing of the League and was hosted by Forres Golf Club from 5th-8th May.

Prize 2

The Handicap League, first played for in 1996, is also in a league format but spread over the months of May – August during which each club having two home and two away fixtures which are “reversed” the following season. The fifth and final series of matches are played at one venue on the same day. Those final matches, in this the 21st year of the Handicap League, were played in 2016 on Sunday 28th August at Forres Golf Club.

All games in both leagues are composed of 8 man teams.

The web site is intended to give some history of the League and statistics from matches played over the years but most importantly, to provide a results service of the season’s competitions as they progress.
There are also links to the Web sites of each of the Clubs as well as other golf-related sites.
I hope you enjoy visiting the League’s web site.
