Handicap Check

Check the news page for the full game report  and photos.

The 2nd Round of our ESVGA Championships was scheduled to be played at the favourite course of many of our members—Gardiner’s-Run. The weather turned out to be fairly warm, but with a pleasant breeze, and plenty of cloud-cover as the morning wore on! With a very healthy field of 112, we were clearly in front on the day!
A timely reminder that our Christmas game is at quirky and unique Beacon-Hills, where we will also hold our AGM. Please consider joining our hard-working Committee, as an extra body, or two, just helps to share the load! We also intend having a complimentary drink voucher for that day, to share the Christmas spirit! ​​Read More

Membership of the ESVGA is for golfers over the age of 55 who have an official Golf Australia handicap.

  All our members are therefore members of a Private Golf Club, a golf club attached to a Public Golf Course or golfing group such as Future Golf Membership. ——————————————————————————-     For more information head to the Membership page.

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.


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 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.


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.

Latest News

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.
