Geelong District Veteran Golfers Association Inc


Membership of the GDVGA is open to playing members aged 55 years and above, of golf clubs within Geelong District that are affiliated with Golf Victoria and who have a current, official handicap.  A small joining fee ($20 for 2017) is charged to cover administrative costs and an annual fee of just $25(2017) entitles members to play in all GDVGA sanctioned events, including a pennant competition conducted during the summer months. Membership also entitles you to enter Victorian Veteran Golfers Association (VVGA) events. New members are always welcome and you should contact the GDVGA delegate at your own club, or the GDVGA Secretary, in the first instance.

Approximately 15 events are scheduled throughout the year and competition fees, which include a light lunch and green fees, start from just $30(2017 rates).  Some venues do attract a higher charge but even so, members still receive very favourable rates and enjoy playing most of the top courses on the Bellarine Peninsula and Surf Coast.  Competition is usually individual Stableford and most events start from 8:00 am on a Monday.

Pre-entry for all regular events is essential and this is generally achieved through the GDVGA delegate at participating clubs.  Tee times are determined once entries close, usually a week before the competition is held and details are published in the Geelong Advertiser and on this web site, as are results.

All membership and administration enquiries should be directed to the Secretary by email to  Golf related enquiries, late entries for games and cancellations, contact the Vice Captain on 

Correspondence should be addressed to Garry Downes Secretary, GDVGA  Inc, 25 William St, Leopold, Vic 3224.
