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.

  • Autumn Meeting 23rd/24th August Downfield G C

    No place like home for Graham Bell, winner of autumn meeting at Downfield

    Graham Bell (Downfield) and Derek Paton (Dunnikier Park) led the field at the end of the first round and they were still there in first and second places after the second and final round of our autumn meeting at Downfield Golf Club, Dundee.
    Graham, playing over his home course, headed a field of well over 100 with so-steady rounds of 70 and 71 for a three-under-par total of 141. His winning margin would have been greater but, after birdieing the 10th, 11th and 12th in his second round, he bogeyed the 17th and 18th holes.
    Derek, the only danger, left himself with mission impossible after bogeying the second, third and fifth in his second round. He did recover a bit to birdie the fourth, 11th, 12th and 14th, finishing with rounds of 70 and 73 for 143.
    Ronnie Clark (Erskine) bounced back from a double bogey 6 at the first to birdie the second, fourth, 13th and 15th in coming through to fill third place on 145 (73-72).

    Derek did however have the consolation of topping the Handicap section with a Net score of 141, with Duncan Hamilton (Mortonhall) second 3 shots behind on 144.
