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.

  • Additional Super Seniors Events 2017

    ADDITIONAL SUPER SENIORS EVENTS FOR 2017

    A proposal was submitted at the Annual General Meeting in August asking for consideration to be given to staging two additional Super Senior events in 2017. The Society celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2017 and many of the “youngsters” who joined a few years ago, now find themselves eligible to join a growing number of Super Seniors.

    Thanks to the efforts of Dave Millar, Alex Hogg and Drew Wilson, we can now advise you that the following events will be added to the Super Seniors schedule for 2017 –

    June 22nd & 23rd - Stirling – Tee times from 10:30 to 13:00

    September 7th & 8th - Ladybank - Tee times from 09:00-11:00 and 12:30-13:30

    These 2 events will be played from “Yellow Tees”.

    As these events are being trialled in 2017 for 1 year, THEY WILL NOT form part of the Super Seniors Order of Merit for 2017. The SSOOM will continue to be based on the main SSGS events and Super Seniors Open and Matchplay.

    Entry forms will be available early in the New Year, but in the meantime any queries relating to these two events should be directed to Dave Millar (Tel. 07975 967564 or e-mail mu.millar@virgin.net)

    Alasdair K Macgregor,

    Captain.
