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.

  • 2018 Spanish Seniors Festival

    2018 Spanish Seniors Festival

    We are looking to return to Hacienda Del Alamo (HDA) in 2018, in the week commencing Monday 22nd October.

    There has been a change in management at HDA  and they are looking to invest over 300,000 Euros in course improvements in the next few months. In addition, the hotel is scheduled to open for business in July 2018, which will no doubt add to the facilities being available at the resort.

    We have been asked however to give an indication of potential numbers in order to reserve the course for our competition and pay a deposit in advance.

    We are therefore looking for an INDICATION from members if you are intending to go to this extremely popular week of golf this year. WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR ANY DEPOSITS TO BE PAID AT THIS TIME. Please respond to Ian Kerr at admin@scottishseniorsgolf.com

    If we receive a sufficient number of positive indications, then we will look to confirm with HDA and formalise arrangements. IF YOU CAN LET US KNOW YOUR INTENTIONS BY 5TH FEB that will allow your Committee to come to a decision. Likely costs are detailed below.
