Who we are
The Northern Counties Ladies Golf Association was established in 1967. It is an amalgamation of seven counties (Banff, Moray, Nairn, Inverness, Ross, Sutherland and Caithness) and covers a huge geographical area from Shetland in the North to Newtonmore in the South (359 miles) and from Skye in the West to Banff in the East (173 miles).
We have more than 60 affiliated clubs and try to play our fixtures across the area over a period of years. Please view a list of our clubs and delegates.
What we do
Our overall aim is to promote the game of golf to ladies and junior girls in the Northern Counties Area. We aim to do that by
- providing opportunities for junior girls and ladies to improve their golf by organisiing competitions to suit all levels and abilities.
- increasng Northern Counties membership in all our clubs.
- keeping members informed of events, competitions and developments within Northern Counties, and
- promoting friendships and fun through playing golf.
Each year the County Team plays in the Inter-County Championship (Jamboree) against the county teams from Perth & Kinross, Angus and Aberdeenshire. The winner represents the North of Scotland in the Scottish County Finals played in September against the winners of the South, East and West of Scotland jamborees. The Northern Counties team were the Scottish County Champions in 2009.
Each County hosts the event once every four years and the 2013 jamboree was in Tain. See some Northern Counties photos in our Gallery.
