James wins Glover Cup

James Buchan, a member of Inverallochy Golf Club, has been named the inaugural winner of the Glover Cup, which was played for over the Corbie course on Saturday, June 21.

The Glover Cup, in the shape of a claret jug, was co-sponsored to Fraserburgh Golf Club by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Europe Ltd, London, and the Thomas Blake Glover Foundation, Fraserburgh, to make the association of Thomas Blake Glover, the “Scottish Samurai”, who was born in Fraserburgh in 1838, with their company in Japan.
