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.

    13th August:  We have required to make some small changes to the initial draw published yesterday. As a result of call off''s, we have managed to find a space for everyone on the reserve list.

    Please take a note of your revised time by clicking on link below.

    We appreciate that members dont like changes being made to the draw, but we are trying to meet requests for members travelling together, and avoiding 2 balls in the middle of the field.

  • Death of Richard Goodale

    It is with great sadness we inform you of the death of Richard Goodale.

    Richard was a long-time member of the S.S.G.S. and a "well kent " face at many of our events. He will be sorely missed by all those of you who knew him well.

    In memory of Richard, Maggie's Fife has been selected as this year's favoured Captain's Charity.

    Our thoughts are with Richard's family and friends at this sad time.

    July 2019 Newsletter update

                         THE GENERATIONS CUP.

    The S.S.G.S. and Golphin have joined forces in a new initiative to develop links between Senior and Junior golf in Scotland.

    Our inaugural event will be held at Dunning Golf Club on Sunday 22nd September with a 10.30 shotgun start

    The format will be Texas scramble with 9 teams, each comprising of 2 Golphin and  2  S.S.G.S  players.

    We therefore require 18 players to make the day a success - any wives / partners keen to play will also be most welcome.

    This is a great opportunity for S.S.G.S. to be involved from the outset in this new and exciting drive from Golphin to develop Junior golf in Scotland and we will, in the coming months, consider other potential ties between our respective groups.

    We trust this event will be well supported and would ask anyone interested to contact Keith Ross - mobile number - 07483 273489 or by e-mail - rosco1956@hotmail.co.uk
