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.

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.
Changes to competition procedures in keeping with COVID-19 laws.
Under current COVID-19 rules flag sticks can be removed.
Please check with the pro shop to see if bunkers are in play.
Preferred lies are now off, given the current weather conditions.
Printed-out scorecards will be used and filled-in/signed by oneself. You are still to record your partner’s score.
Except for courses where the Autocard system is available, all cards should be placed in a designated box on completion of your round.
For the ESVGA 2022 program click here.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.
