ADDITIONAL SUPER SENIORS EVENTS FOR 2018

2018: Following on from the additional Super Senior events that were implemented in 2017, we have added another extra event in 2018. We have also initiated a review of Super Senior events from 2019 onwards and further details will be provided in due course, and at AGM for approval, so watch this space.

In the meantime however, your Committee have agreed that pending this review, we will make some small changes to entry requirements for 2018. FOR SUPER SENIOR EVENTS ONLY:-

  • THE MAXIMUM HANDICAP ALLOWED WILL BE RAISED TO 15.4
  • NON SSGS MEMBERS WILL BE ALLOWED TO PLAY IN ONE SUPER SENIOR EVENT, IN ADDITION TO SUPER SENIORS OPEN, WITHOUT JOINING THE SOCIETY.
  • IF WISH TO PLAY IN MORE EVENTS, OR ANY NON SUPER SENNIOR EVENTS THEN WILL REQUIRE TO JOIN.
  • FOR MAIN EVENTS (I.E. ALL NON SUPER SENIOR EVENTS) CURRENT MAX HANDICAP OF 9.4 WILL CONTINUE TO APPLY.

The above steps have been implemented in order to try and improve attendance figures at Super Senior events.

Super Seniors Spring Meeting Aboyne & Ballater Golf Clubs

Ian Morrison  (Royal Aberdeen) wins SSGS Super Senior Spring Meeting by  2 shots on 144

David Millar (New Club St Andrews) & David Nelson (Aboyne) share handicap section

The second round of the SSGS Super Seniors Spring meeting took place today over Ballater Golf Course. The weather was dry and sunny and was a welcome change from the heavy shower yesterday at Aboyne.

Overnight leaders Alistair Fiddes (Murcar) & Billy Erskine (Kilysth Lennox) failed to capitalise on their position and were overtaken with a fine second round score by Ian Morrison of 71 to win by 2 shots from  Jim Kinloch (Cardross) and overnight leader Billy Erskine.

In the handicap section there were joint winners. David Millar (6) (New Club St Andrews)  and local David Nelson (8) (Aboyne) both returning scores of 135. David Millar had one the lowest Gross and net scores on the day of 71/65, beating the CSS by 2 shots. There were a number of players 1 shot further back on 136.

Next Super Seniors event is at Stirling Golf Club on 28/29th June.

 

JAN 2017: A proposal was submitted at the Annual General Meeting in August asking for consideration to be given to staging two additional Super Senior events in 2017. The Society celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2017 and many of the “youngsters” who joined a few years ago, now find themselves eligible to join a growing number of Super Seniors.

Thanks to the efforts of Dave Millar, Alex Hogg and Drew Wilson, we can now advise you that the following events will be added to the Super Seniors schedule for 2017 –

June 22nd & 23rd - Stirling – Tee times from 10:30 to 13:00

September 7th & 8th - Ladybank - Tee times from 09:00-11:00 and 12:30-13:30

These 2 events will be played from “Yellow Tees”.

As these events are being trialled in 2017 for 1 year, THEY WILL NOT form part of the Super Seniors Order of Merit for 2017. The SSOOM will continue to be based on the main SSGS events and Super Seniors Open and Matchplay.

Entry forms will be available early in the New Year, but in the meantime any queries relating to these two events should be directed to Dave Millar (Tel. 07975 967564 or e-mail mu.millar@virgin.net)

Alasdair K Macgregor,

Captain.
