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 250 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 on Thursdays and
Fridays at top quality venues with a maximum field of 140 players, as well as a match-play event (55 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 2016 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.

Stewart is pictured below receiving the trophy from Jonathan Campbell, Director at McCrea Financial Services, our main Sponsor.

  • West of Scotland Open

    Stewart Henderson wins West of Scotland Seniors Open
    Stewart Henderson (Hamilton) won our West of Scotland Seniors Open, reduced to one round because of high winds on Thursday, with a two-under-par score of 68.
    Stewart won by one stroke from Ian Brotherston (Dumfries and County) with Ronnie Clark (Erskine) third on the 70 mark at Ranfurly Castle Golf Club.
    Stewart had a mixed big bag of figures. He had an eagle 2 at the third and birdies at the first, third, fourth and short 14th. But he ran up a double bogey 6 at the eight and dropped strokes to par at the 12th and 17th in halves of 34.
    Ian's highlights in a 69 were an eagle 3 at the third and a birdie at the 12th.

    In the Handicap section, Kevin McArthur (St Andrews Golf Club) won narrowly with a Net 69, edging out our Captain Gordon Doig (Southerness) by 2 shots.
