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:
This year (2017) we are entering 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.
The main competition day is Wednesday. Members enter themselves into two time blocks: 9 - 10, 10 - 11 and a draw is made to allocate playing partners. Usually there are 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 6th Nov - Sunday League Winter 2016/17 Season starts. All welcome.
Sign-on for the season or guest occasionally.
Meet at 10am for coffee and tee off at 10.30am."
The club has three teams in the weekend Avalon League and also a Stragglers team (Weds. afternoons) for those that like to play competitive golf against other clubs
