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.

  • Charity message from Drew Wilson

    I am once again helping to run the St Margaret of Scotland Hospice Charity Golf day. This year we have been given the courtesy of Balmore Golf Club on Friday 18th August .

    The format will be, a four person Texas Scramble with a £100 entry per team.

    Last year the response from our members was fantastic which went a long way to helping us raise over £5k which was greatly appreciated by the Hospice who need over £45k per week to keep going.

    It would be greatly appreciated If anyone can help again this year by donating four balls or entering a team to this event.

    Thanks Again

  • North Of Scotland Open 11th/12th May

    Graham Bell (Downfield), Andrew Stracey (Denham) and Stewart Henderson (Hamilton) shared first place with a total of 146 (6 over par).

    A strong easterly wind made conditions much tougher on Friday and this was reflected in the scoring.  Overnight leader, Graham Bell, looked to have thrown away his chance of victory with an outward nine of 44 (9 over par), but a level par back nine of 35 gave him a second round score of 79 to add to his opening 67.  Andrew Stracey and Stewart Henderson both had rounds of 71 and 75.  The joint winners managed to record only one birdie between them on their second round cards, with Andrew birdieing the 18th to share first place.

    Fourth place was shared by Ian Brotherston (Dumfries and County) (72 + 75), and Robert Smith (Nairn) (68 + 79) on 147.

    The handicap event was won by Brian Smith (Glasgow) (4) with net scores of 69 and 75 for a total of 144.  Second place was shared by Willie Skene (Deeside) (8) and Innes Christie (Mortonhall) (4) on 146.

    Par 70, SSS 72, CSS: 72, 75(R/O)
