The Senior members at SVGC are a really friendly crowd who really enjoy their golf and the banter associated with playing with like-minded/aged individuals
Our Senior members (which total over 250) have a wide spread of handicaps from single figures to high handicappers
Any member of the club who has reached the (mature!) age of 55 is automatically a member of the Seniors – no fees to pay!
For prospective members here are some of our activities:
We play in the Avalon Seniors league for league based golf and we currently also have 26 friendly fixtures against other clubs on a home and away basis – Click on the the very impressive planner for details
Besides the Club Saturday competitions, during the year there are some 90+ matches/competitions you can enter during the week organised by the Senior’s committee.
The main competition day is Wednesday. Members enter themselves online into time zones: between 8.30 and 11.30 and a draw is made by the pro shop to allocate playing partners. Usually there are at least 2 handicap qualifying competitions per month (Medal or Stableford) – plus 2 other e.g. bowmaker, texas scramble competitions.
A merit and eclectic competition is also played during Winter and Summer based upon the Wednesday results along with Winter & Summer Singles & Doubles knockout competitions
There are also a roll-ups most days of the week – great way of meeting people! – ask the club management for details
There are also other opportunities to play 7 days per week, eg. The club main competition day is the middle and end Saturday of the month which is open to all club members – just enter your name via the online club booking system to be included in the draw.
There are also other roll-up type competitions on Sundays – recent post on the SVGC Facebook site:
Sunday League starts a new season on Sunday 5th November. This is a non-gender specific, non-binary group with all ages, races and religions plus Dennis Henry Brown.
All are welcome. We meet at 10am to sign in (£5/week) with first tees from 10.30am every Sunday as the name of the group might suggest! Handicaps this year of players has been 7 to 36.
