Do you know where the Hands Across the Sea

boys' trophy is?

The "Hands Across the Sea" Tournament for boys, always played at the Aberdeen Links, used to be a highlight of the summer golf season for juniors.
It had been won by players of the calibre of Hugh Stuart, Harry Bannerman and Sandy Pirie, and, more recently, David Law.
But for some reason the number of entries fell away to such an extent that the competition has not been played since 2013.
Northern Golf Club member Derek Johnstone, a leading light in organising such events as the Aberdeen and District Pennant Leagues for adults and for juniors, says that the "Hands Across the Sea" tournament could well make a comeback in the next year or two.
There is one major stumbling block.
"Nobody can remember who was the last winner of the trophy, even though it was only four years ago so we have no idea of where it is, whether with an individual or in a golf club's trophy cabinet somewhere," says Derek.
