Membership of the East Suburban Veteran Golfers Association Inc. (ESVGA) is available to all golfers over the age of 55 with an official Golf Australia handicap.

The Association schedules competition games once per month, usually on the first or second Monday of the month, at mostly private clubs but also at some of the better public courses in the outer Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne. We play monthly competitions with the top 10 scores awarded prizes based on their GA handicap scores. A unique feature of ESVGA competitions is that we play nearest the pin competitions in grades A, B and C to give players of all abilities the chance to win. We also have a generous ball run-down for non-winners.

In 2021 we will again be playing shotgun starts at 12 different courses, starting at 8:30 am except during daylight savings months November to March and at Ringwood G.C. in July. Your modest game fee also includes prizes and lunch with refreshments available at all courses.

We were formed in December 1984 and have a steady membership of 160 plus players from over 30 different clubs.

The ESVGA is 1 of 21 autonomous golf districts within Victoria associated with the Victorian Veteran Golfers Association (VVGA). Click here for the 2021 VVGA Parmaker Handbook of all Victorian Veteran events.
