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.

  • IAN BROTHERSTON 3RD IN SCANDANAVIAN OPEN

     

     IAN BROTHERSTON FINISHES 3RD SCANDINAVIAN SENIORS OPEN.

    Ian Brotherston, winner of the Scandanavian Seniors Open in 2015, narrowly fails to retain trophy.

    Ian finished a gallant 3rd in this year's event. We have no news where fellow SSGS member Keith Bruce finished in the singles although he and Ian also finished 3rd in doubles competition.

    Well done to Ian on a gallant defence of singles and to Keith and Ian on their doubles performance.

    From the picture below it seems Ian enjoyed better weather than we did at same time in Southerness.
