On a day when the elements were predicted to test our resolve, 98 intrepid ESVGA members played the impressive Keysborough course—-and didn’t get wet–at all!!. Even on a drab day, this course is a pleasure to play, with its well-thought-out design! Beautifully manicured, but still a demanding challenge, the scores were always going to range from surprisingly impressive to—-well, we won’t dwell on those results. (Suffice to say, the President’s modest return was nowhere near the bottom of the list!!)

Special acknowledgement to the winner of our new event, the Stableford match play won by Robin Ladd and runner up Dave Rogers.

ESVGA – Who we are?

The ESVGA aims to provide competition golf at a variety of golf courses in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs for golfers over the age of 55. We cater for golfers of all abilities who have an official Golf Australia handicap.

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 2022 VVGA events for all Victorian Veteran associations.

What we do?

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.

Monthly competitions

We play monthly competitions with the top 10 scores awarded prizes based on their G.A. handicap scores.

NEAREST THE PIN COMPETITIONS

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.

BALL RUN-DOWN

We also have a generous ball run-down for non-winners.

SHOTGUN STARTS, PRIZES & LUNCH

In 2022 we will again be playing shotgun starts at 12 different courses, starting at 8:30 am except during daylight savings months November to March. Your modest game fee also includes prizes and lunch with refreshments available at all courses.

As a veteran golf association with limited resources, we are unable to play at Ringwood Golf Course in 2022 due to the conditions placed on us by Maroondah Council who operate the course. We have managed to find an alternate course in Keysborough Golf Club. As our normal June date was unavailable for Keysborough, our June game will be played on 30th May.
