North of Scotland Seniors Open at Elgin on 
Thursday and Friday

The second event in the Scottish Seniors Golfing Society season takes place on Thursday and Friday this week with the North of Scotland Seniors Open (sponsored by McCrea Financial Services) at Elgin.
There is a field of 104 for the event with a good mix of ages and handicaps and all are looking forward to playing one of the finest inland courses in the North of Scotland.

Winner of the 2014 Seniors Order of Merit title, Ian Brotherston (Dumfries and County) starts his bid to retain his title after missing the first event to pursue the Portuguese Seniors Championship. Barry Brooks (Meldrum House) defends the North title but will face stiff competition from  the established group of leading players as well as some new faces who are keen to make their mark.
 Keith Reilly (Silverknowes), who won so impressively at Scotscraig last month, and Malcolm Reid (Sonning ) miss the event due to other commitments.

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 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. Further details can be obtained via the website –www.scottish or by contacting Ian Kerr at
