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.

  • South of Scotland Open 26th & 27th July

    Stewart Henderson wins South Senior Open by seven strokes with a pair of 66s

    Hamilton's Stewart Henderson outclassed the field in the South of Scotland Senior Open over 36 holes at Dumfries and County to win the title by seven shots.
    Stewart shot two brilliant rounds of three-under-par 66 for a total of 132. His halves were 37-29 in the first round and 35-31 in the second.
    Former shinty star John Fraser (Royal Burgess) was the distant runner-up with scores of 67 (32-35) and 72. A double bogey at the fifth after bogeys at the third and fourth in his second round killed his hopes of staying in touch with Stewart.
    Ronnie Clark (Erskine) (71-71) and Malcolm Reid (Sonning) (70-72) finished joint third.

    In the Handicap section local player Graeme Sharp (Playing off 4) enjoyed a victory on his home course with a Net total of 135, beating Stewart Henderson by 1. In joint 3rd place were George Rodaks (Pitreavie) and Brian Halbert (Callander) on 138.

    In the Super Seniors section, John Fraser won the Scratch with his 139, and George Rodaks  and Brian Halbert shared  the Net with a score of 138.
