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 (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 2019 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.

  • 2019 Order Of Merits

    After the final Super Seniors event at Ladybank, George Rodaks (Dunfermline Pitreavie) holds onto top slot in the 2019 Order of Merit. George had to call off playing at Ladybank, but his opponents couldn’t take advantage to overhaul his lead. George won on 1070 points, with Jalil Aman in second place on 1003, with Neish Chisholm in 3rd place only 1 point back on 1002. Congratulations George on a consistent season.

    Jalil Aman (Grangemouth) emerged as winner of the Super Seniors Gross Order of Merit for 2019. A strong finish ay Ladybank where he topped both the scratch and handicap competitions, gave him enough points to edge out Keith Bruce (Edzell). Jalil's winning points total was 1470, with Keith 2nd on 1380. In 3rd place was Lindsay Gordon (Turnhouse) on 1305. These 3 were well clear of 4th place which was 867 points.

  • Autumn Meeting 22/23rd August Nairn

    23rd August: We are having some system issues with Golfbox and cannot close down round 2 to send your scores through to CDH. We will need to investigate along with Scottish Golf, and this will be done after the bank holiday on Monday.

    We also had problems with the CSS calculation for round 1. Initially this was calculated at 74 R/O, but has since been amended to 76 R/O. The small number of players affected will be contacted seperately to advise steps being taken to sort out.

    CSS for round 2 was 75.

    We will update in due course.
