WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF THE SCOTTISH SENIORS GOLFING SOCIETY

Formed in November 2006, the Society is the brainchild of former amateur internationalist, Gordon MacDonald. It was formed to meet a significant demand
for high level competition for senior amateur golfers still keen to test their games at a high level.

SSGS has surpassed expectations in terms of what it has achieved since 2006, particularly at a time when golf is struggling to maintain levels of
active participation. The standard of golf is high with many former Walker Cup and Scottish internationalists involved. We have in excess of 300 members and all the
events take place in a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere on very good courses.

We run a programme of events for players aged 50 and over with handicaps of 9.4 or less. These are principally 36 hole events played midweek at top quality venues with a maximum field of 140 players, as well as a match-play event (50 years and above) and an inter-county team event. In
addition, we also run a limited series of 18 hole competitions over the winter period. Full details of our 2020 fixtures can be accessed via the
“Competitions” tab above.

By utilising the various links above you will be able to find all the relevant information about the Society, how to become a member and enter our
various events.

  • Matchplay Knockout stages postpponed

     30th Sept:

    Unfortunately due too overnight, and current weather conditions, the course has been closed today at Alloa.

    The outlook for tomorrow isn’t great either and after discussions with Head Greenkeeper the view is tomorrow is unlikely to be playable either.

    The decision has therefore been taken, reluctantly to postpone the competition, with a view to reschedule for spring next year, around the April/May time, this is subject to discussion with the club to agree dates etc.

    We apologise for inconvenience and frustration this will no doubt cause, but we feel we have been left with no other alternative.

    We will be in touch with further updates in due course.
