Course Status

From 8th August  to 17th August 2016.  

The course is open, however, the green keeping staff have cored and topdressed the greens with sand.  This is an essential annual maintenance operation carried out by all golf courses to aerate the growing medium and remove thatch which is dead grass and material which if left leads to poor drainage and disease.  

Until Wednesday 17th August a reduced green fee is in place to compensate for the effected putting surfaces.  The reduction is £5.00 per person at all times of the day and week.

Seniors Section

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
