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 (50 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 2019 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.

  • Spring Meeting 25th April 2019

    Paul Moultrie wins the opening event of the 2019 OOM season, with a level par total of 142. In second place was Maurice Lindsay (The Grange G C) one shot adrift on 143, with Niall Lamond (Tantallan) and Richard Johnston (Glebervie) tied equal 3rd on 145.

    In the handicap section, ex-pat Ken Thomson (Bramhall Park) had an excellent 2 round total of 139 Nett, 3 under par, with Niall Lamond and Alan Harrington (Western Gailes) tied for 2nd on 141.

    Play over the 2 days was challenging, with the weather breaking from the recent good spell. On Thursday, we were faced with high winds throughout the day and the later players had to contend with heavy rain, thunder and lightning. Play had to be suspend for 30 mins in the afternoon for player safety. On Friday the wind had changed direction slightly and intensified. The early starts had the best of the day getting around in the dry, before the heavens opened and heavy rain persisted for the afternoon. Scoring was excellent in view of the conditions.

    CSS for round 1 was 72, and for Round 2 74. (Par and SSS for Powfoot is 71).
