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.

    Committee Decision Paper

    Glenmuir Order Form


  • Committee Vacancy

    Committee Vacancy

    Ronnie Clark Co-opted to SSGS Committee.

    Further to the Constitution changes approved at last year's A.G.M., we have yet to receive any nomination for the newly created post of Communications Officer.

    A proposal from Ian Kerr, to replace the post of Communications Officer with the current Captain of the Scottish Seniors International Teams, providing he was a member of the S.S.G.S. , has met with unanimous Committee approval.

    This proposal is a further change to the Constitution and will be included on the agenda of the next A.G.M. for approval as and when restrictions allow this to be staged.

     Ronnie Clark, as the current Scottish Senior Captain, has accepted our invitation to fill this post.  It is our intention to co-opt Ronnie, with immediate effect,  until such times as the creation of this new post and in turn his appointment, can be  ratified by the membership.

    The Committee see this as positive step forward in the continuing evolvement of the Society and we look forward to Ronnie's input over the coming months.

    Keith Ross.
