All have made it through to the semi-finals of the Lossiemouth club's five-day open, across three handicap sections.

Nine of them are Moray members, heightening the chances of a home clean sweep of the trophies at the 115th running of the tournament.

Forres golfer Matty Wilson is aiming to upset the locals in the scratch section as he is the only travelling golfer in contention for the Northrn Amateur Championship.
