ESGA was founded in 1960 by a group of avid golfers from the Siwanoy Country Club in Bronxville, NY. We describe ourselves as an organization of gentlemen devoted to the advancement of the game of golf and the promotion of good fellowship.  Our golfing events include a full social program of receptions, lunches, and award banquets to complement the golf -- in the spirit of fellowship and camaraderie. The membership has grown to about 300 members representing a diverse group of amateur golfers primarily from the eastern United States.  One must be at least fifty years of age and a member of an organized golf club to be eligible for membership, which is by invitation. The Association currently schedules up to five events each year, beginning with a winter event in Florida and the remainder in the Metro NY area during the spring and summer.
