‘Eaton Vets’ is a Section of Eaton Golf Club (EGC) that is open to all male golfers at Eaton, who are aged 55 and over and hold a current handicap under the World Handicap System. So, if you are eligible and haven’t already signed up to be a member of Eaton Vets for the coming year, why not take this opportunity to do so?
It will only cost you £5.00. A real bargain, as you will more than get this back later in the year – in the form of an excellent Full English Breakfast, provided only that you play in the premier Eaton Vets Trophy Competition, The Pheysey Cup, &/or attend the AGM later that day.
Generally membership commences in the October, following the AGM. However, if you are a new Eaton Golf Club member or recently ‘come of age’, please get in touch.
How To Join
Simply complete the short Eaton Vets’ Membership Application and hand this to Sarah in the main office together with your £5.00.
Being a member of Eaton Vets will not in any way change your status as a member of Eaton Golf Club. You will, however, be warmly welcomed into a group of more than 120 Eaton members who enjoy competitive golf amongst themselves and against other leading Clubs in Norfolk.
You can look forward to participating in a full summer season of Home & Away fixtures with our partner clubs. Between March & September there are approximately 32 competitive matches, all of which are played in a ‘Four Ball, Better Ball’ Match Play format. To top & tail these Inter-Club Matches, we also have two golf days with Eaton Ladies, usually one in March and one in September.
In addition, you can compete for the three Eaton Vets’ Trophy Competitions, The Pinching Tankard, The Colin Clark Memorial Trophy & The Pheysey Cup.
What’s more, you can enjoy the very popular annual Eaton Vets’ Christmas Dinner to which Wives/Partners are, of course, cordially invited.
The Eaton Seniors Open
The annual Eaton Seniors Open will be next held on Thursday, 12th May 2022. As well as being an excellent golfing day for both Members & Visitors, this is also a major fund-raising event that helps us to pay for various Eaton Vets activities throughout the year.
Newsletter & Regular E-mail Updates
In February each year, you will receive a Newsletter from the Eaton Vets Captain accompanied by a Fixture List. This will be followed by regular updates about upcoming Eaton Vets Inter-Club Matches & Trophy Competitions.
The Eaton Vets Committee
The numerous Inter-Club Matches and Trophy Competitions do not, of course, just happen. Not only do we rely upon your support, as an Eaton Vets’ Member, but also upon the efforts behind the scenes of our Committee.
Our current Eaton Vets Committee Members are:
• Captain Ian Gorst firstname.lastname@example.org
• Vice-Captain David Kelly email@example.com
• Treasurer Alan Loughlin firstname.lastname@example.org

If you would like to serve on the Committee, perhaps with a view to standing for election as next year’s Vice-Captain, simply contact our Eaton Vets Captain.
AGM – Wednesday, 13th October 2021
Traditionally, the Eaton Vets AGM takes place immediately following the playing of The Pheysey Cup. The AGM receives a Captain’s and a Treasurer’s Report, and officers are elected for the following year. Remember, your reward for attending the AGM is an excellent (‘free’) Full English Breakfast.
