CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 17th March 2020

Considering the current Government guidelines and with the health and safety of our members and administrators being paramount, the Committee have decided on the following course of action, with immediate effect:

  • The Super Seniors International Masters at Scotscraig Golf Club scheduled for 15-17th April has been cancelled, as has the pre competition reception on the 14th. All entrants have been advised. Entry fees will be refunded or held in credit for future events.
  • The Spring meeting at Dunblane on 23/24th April has been cancelled. All entry monies paid will be held in credit for future SSGS events, either in 2020 or 2021.
  • All other SSGS events due from 1st May onwards will be reviewed nearer the relevant competition date to determine if will proceed or not. These decisions will be made in enough time to allow for any accommodation and travel arrangements to be changed as required.
  • Winter Stablefords are cancelled,

We understand that this will be a disappointment to many of you, but given the current situation, and considering the age profile of our Society, we feel that this is the correct course of action.

We will keep you informed of developments via website, Facebook and regular emails.
