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.

    Maurice Lindsay wins East of Scotland Open

    St Andrews was affected badly by Haar on both days of the competition, resulting in delays to start. On Thursday we had to resort to a 2 tee start after a 3 hour delay, and on Friday a 2 hour delay occurred. Many thanks to Archie & Dave and the staff at Fairmont in re-organising starts to allow the competition to proceed.

    At the end of the 2 days, Monifieth's Maurice Lindsay emerged the winner with rounds of 73 and 69 for two-under 142.
    The winner and the runner-up, Gary Tough (Edzell), beaten by only one stroke, were the only players in the big field to go as low as 69 on the second day. 

    Nairn's Robert Smith, joint first-round leader with a 71, looked to have the title sewn up when he reached the turn in a bogey-free 32 shots in his second round but he had a nightmare inward half of 41 for a 73 which dragged him down to third place on 144.

    In the handicap section Keith Renton (Lundin) had a narrow one shot victory over Billy Erskine (Kilysth Lennox) and Gary Tough (Edzell) on 149.
