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 -

Central Scotland Open 4th/5th July Stirling

Monday, 08 July 2019




Paul Moultrie (Royal Troon), romps to a 9 shot victory at the Central Open at Stirling, with a total 135. His first round 65 (including an albatross 2), is believed to have equalled the course record at Stirling (awaiting confirmation). In second place on 144 was his fellow Royal Troon member, Robert Jenkins who pipped Ronnie Clark (Erskine) as a result of a better 2nd round on countback. Great shooting from Paul over the 2 days.

It should also be mentioned that Ian Smith (Gullane) had a hole in 1 at the par 3 10th.

In the handicap event, Paul also shot the best Nett score with a 137, but as cannot win 2 prizes, the award of 1st place goes to Ken Thomson (Bramhall Park) with a Nett 141, winning by a 3 shot margin from Keith Reilly (Silverknowes) who edged out George Barrie (Callander) for 2nd place as a result of better 2nd round. Also on 144 were Keith Ross (Glasgow) and Andrew Aitken (Stirling).
