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:
Last year (2017) we entered the Avalon Seniors League plus we have 30 fixtures or so against other golf clubs on a home and away basis - click on the planner below.
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 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 is also a roll-up 9.00 on Mondays and Fridays - just turn up - great way of meeting people!
There are also other opportunities to play 7 days per week, eg. The club main competition day is Saturday which is open to all club members - just enter your name on the main Men's noticeboard 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. We run our own week-by-week handicap system and have weekly prizes. Win a lot and you could end up being a plus handicap golfer!
Come along as a guest for a taster game or sign-up for the season.
For competitve golf against other clubs the Seniors have a side in the Avalon league - usually about 12 matches per season - and the main club has three teams in the weekend Avalon League and also a Stragglers team (Weds. afternoons).
