“President Dave’s game report – “As the dust was settled early with misty conditions for our 8.30 hit off. A small bit of chaos with the cards printed for blue tees at slope 130. All fixed (and) we were away. Everyone moved easily over the changed course. Not too many bunkers now, but plenty of GUR where some have been removed. Time to play, four hours thirty. All inside and eating freshly prepared and plated sandwiches by 1.30. Delicious. No side effects??? I hope none.” Read the full report on our News 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 2023 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.
