ESVGA – Who are we?

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.

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 in grades A, B and C with prizes awarded to first, second and third place in each grade. We conduct nearest the pin competitions for each grade and have a generous ball run-down for non winners.

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.

In 2019 we will be playing shotgun starts at 11 different courses, starting at 8:30am except during daylight savings time. 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).
