There is no age limit on playing golf and in Derbyshire we try to organise events for the more mature player as well as the younger ones.

The Derbyshire Ladies Veteran Golf Association was formed in 1960 for county members aged 50 and above. The President elected was Miss Phyllis Evershed, Captain was Mrs Gertrude Thomas and Miss Dorothy Walton was secretary and treasurer.

The first competition was held at Erewash Valley Golf Club and as the association grew several of the founder members offered to give cups or trophies to play for, including the Joan Gee Cup, the Nancy Henriques Trophy, the Phyllis Evershed Team Trophy, the Gertrude Thomas Trophy and the Dorothy Walton Foursomes Trophy, all of which are still being played for.

Over the years Derbyshire have played against fellow Counties, including Staffordshire, Nottinghamshire, Leciestershire, Warwickshire and Lincolnshire. (The last two Counties are now longer played against.) In 1966 a Bronze team was proposed and they subsequently played against Leicestershire, Staffordshire and Nottinghamshire.

Over the years the Association became so popular that the age limit was raised to 55 and then to 60, but was reduced back down to 55 in 2016.

Most of the original rules laid down in 1960 still apply, with over 250 ladies taking an active part with membership form 22 Derbyshire clubs. This friendly association still has the same enthusiasm as was first envisaged by our founder members and in 2009 celebrated their Golden Jubilee at Erewash Valley Golf Club.
