Scottish Seniors Golfing Society  season tees off at Scotscraig this week

The Scottish Seniors Golfing Society season gets underway this week with the Spring Open (sponsored by McCrea Financial Services) at Scotscraig on Thursday and Friday.

Winner of the 2014 Order of Merit title, Ian Brotherston (Dumfries and County) misses the event to pursue the Portuguese Seniors Championship but the remainder of last year’s successful Scottish Senior Team are present as well as the established group of leading players.
There has been a good intake of new members this year, several  with handicaps of scratch or better  and they will be looking to make their mark as John Fraser (Royal Burgess) defends his title.

There is a full field for the event with a good mix of ages and abilities and there will also be keen interest in the net scores with a trip to Spain, courtesy of Campbell Lamont Golf Leagues, available to the two leading net scores.

Formed in November 2006, the Scottish Seniors Golfing Society is the brainchild of former amateur international, 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. All the events take place in a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere on good courses.There are age group prizes and separate order of merit titles on a handicap basis and for those members over the age of 65.
Membership of the Society is open to golfers over the age of 50 with handicaps of 9.4 or less.
