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 -

Monday, 29 July 2019


With a top 20 finish in the British Seniors Open, Ronnie has secured his top spot in the 2019 OOM table. Ronnie finished on 1185 points, 174 ahead of Stewart Henderson (Hamilton) in 2nd place. The battle for 3rd place was a close run affair, with Paul Moultrie (Royal Troon) 849, narrowly edging out Robert Smith (Nairn) by 1 point. Gary Tough (Edzell) was a close 5th ending on 836 points. Full list can be viewed by clicking on undernoted link.

Congratulations to Ronnie on another succesful season, which started off slow by his standards, but picked up pace towards the end. 

Special mention should also be made for Graham Bell who won the Scottish Seniors Open run by Scottish Golf, when he won a 3 man play off which also included Robert Smith.


The Nett OOM, has now concluded for the year, as no Nett points are awarded in the British Open. NEISH CHISHOLM (Kemnay) emerges on top with 475 points, narrowly winning by 25 points from KEN THOMSON (Bramhall Park) with KEITH REILLY (Silverknowes) in 3rd place on 405.

Congratulations to Neish.

With 0nly 1 event left to count in this year’s Scratch OOM (British Open at North Berwick), things are tight at the top. In the main OOM, only 90 points separate the top 3 players, with Ronnie Clark topping the list on 1134 with Matchplay winner Stewart Henderson in 2nd place, 123 points back on 1011. Paul Moultrie lies 3rd on 849. All to play for in the last event.

The Super seniors OOM’s will run as previously in that all events this calendar year will count towards 2019 OOM positions. Again things are tight with 3 events to go.

In the Super Seniors OOM (which is on a Nett basis), Neish Chisholm holds a commanding lead on 957 points, with Keith Bruce (Edzell) in 2nd place at moment on 782. Ken Thomson is in 3rd place on 777.
