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.

    ADDITIONAL SUPER SENIORS EVENTS FOR 2018

    2018: Following on from the additional Super Senior events that were implemented in 2017, we have added another extra event in 2018. We have also initiated a review of Super Senior events from 2019 onwards and further details will be provided in due course, and at AGM for approval, so watch this space.

    In the meantime however, your Committee have agreed that pending this review, we will make some small changes to entry requirements for 2018. FOR SUPER SENIOR EVENTS ONLY:-

    • THE MAXIMUM HANDICAP ALLOWED WILL BE RAISED TO 15.4
    • NON SSGS MEMBERS WILL BE ALLOWED TO PLAY IN ONE SUPER SENIOR EVENT, IN ADDITION TO SUPER SENIORS OPEN, WITHOUT JOINING THE SOCIETY.
    • IF WISH TO PLAY IN MORE EVENTS, OR ANY NON SUPER SENNIOR EVENTS THEN WILL REQUIRE TO JOIN.
    • FOR MAIN EVENTS (I.E. ALL NON SUPER SENIOR EVENTS) CURRENT MAX HANDICAP OF 9.4 WILL CONTINUE TO APPLY.

    The above steps have been implemented in order to try and improve attendance figures at Super Senior events.

    All 2018 fixtures can be viewed on fixtures page, or by clicking on this link. 2018 FIXTURES

    The final Scottish Seniors Golf Society Winter Event went ahead at a breezy Prestwick St Cuthbert today.
    The course was in excellent condition and the greens cut making them good to putt on.
    The breeze made scoring difficult with pars and birdies hard to get.

    The result was close with Kevin McCarthur (St Andrews) 37points piping Neish Chisholm (Kemnay), Keith Ross (Glasgow), Alex Hogg (Stirling), Stuart Drysdale (Leven Golf Society) and Donnie Lindsay (Barrassie) all with 36 points.

    Kevin’s back 9 score of 20 points being the best of the day clinching him the win, although it may have been better as he had a no score at the 308 yd 10th hole.
