Don’t have a handicap 54 certificate/ GVB yet? lucky you! A hcp 54 isn’t obligated for the tournament but, if the tournament doesn’t match your level of experience you can still join our clinic and optional diner (via the same link) where you will learn the basics of golf in a student way. Think of a DJ on the driving range, beers etc.
Hierbij introduceren wij Ivy Global als partner voor de shoot-out van maandag 25 februari. Een kleine toelichting van te voren over Ivy is wel op zijn plaats:
De missie van Ivy Global is om de kloof tussen het bedrijfsleven en studenten te dichten; zij zien dat er binnen (technische) bedrijven veel projecten blijven liggen omdat er te weinig capaciteit is en bij studenten zien we dat de ontwikkeling naar young professional pas na de studie begint. Nederland telt 60.000 technische studenten. Als die 1 dag in de week zouden werken, dan heeft BV Nederland 12.000 technische FTE tot zijn beschikking! Het voordeel voor de student is dat tijdens de studie al relevante werkervaring op wordt gedaan.
Voorbeelden van projecten die Ivy Global uitvoert zijn:
Het up to date maken van as-built tekeningen, het verbeteren van processen op doorlooptijd, kwaliteit en kosten, het implementeren van DMS systemen, etc.
Wij werken voor opdrachtgevers als Strukton, EPZ, Friesland Campina, diverse waterschappen, BP. Maar ook kleine aannemers en productiebedrijven in het MKB.
Ivy Global zal aanwezig zijn tijdens de shoot-out om meer over hun dagelijkse activiteiten te vertellen en alle vragen te beantwoorden.
Wij hopen jullie allemaal maandag 25 februari te zien voor een shoot-out met heerlijk weer en de mogelijkheid om een eerste stap te zetten tot relevante werkervaring tijdens je studeertijd!

As the current chairman Aswin does his Erasmus semester in Turin you might ask the question: Is there anything else than golf? The obvious answers from our PGA pro Andrew is obviously “no”.
Halve way September Aswin moved for Turin for 5 months to do his international semester at the Politecnico di Torino. Without a chairman the association cannot function anymore and, therefore, Yvo will function as chairman for the first halve a year. During this time Aswin will miss: Andrew, 5 shoot-outs, 2 HyTEPS events, 1 Christmas dinner, approximately 44 club hours, beer, BaCo and most importantly “golf”. So if he will miss all those things, what does he get in return and is Andrews “obvious” answer still that obvious in the end.
So apart from the negative side, Turin might also give some things in return. First of all, Turin located in Piemonte is known for their “aperativo”, which basically means free food. By taking an aperativo you buy a nice cocktail, long island ice-tea for example. Then you are allowed to try all the house it’s specialties which are presented on a big table. Most often this includes pizza, pasta and tiramisu. Furthermore the region Piemonte is known for Barolo wine, Truffles, Nutella and the foundation of the Vermouth. Finally, Piemonte contains a lot of skiing areas which will open soon, including the bars with beer and Jägermeister. But does this outweigh all the losses?
This question was again asked to Andrew, which responded “no” without any doubt. However, Andrew who has only seen Panama except from a golf course in his life, might be a bit narrow minded. The question was answered by somebody else. “Turin, a nice place in Italy which is the most polluted city in Europe is very nice. I love to inhale dirty air and as a student I’m used to eat pizza and pasta each and every day. Furthermore, I am the guy that is really into discovering old historical monuments of which there are a lot in Italy.” Said Aswin who has never seen a 6000 year old “hunebed” in Drenthe. Finally, Aswin said he misses playing golf: “Standing 4-6 hours a week on a driving range while playing handicap 31.5, wasting hours of Andrews valuable time and knowing that Jordy is drinking all the free beers. That’s a difficult time, people have to understand that”.
According to the final answer given by Aswin we may conclude that not playing golf is a huge loss in somebody’s life. Especially, if you lose the opportunity to play at E.S.G.V. De Club. Finally, we may conclude that our “Big A” was again right.
The final shootout, the mighty “F.A.E.S.G.V.A.S.G.B.” (First Annual Eindhovensche Studenten Golf Vereniging All Sports Golf Battle) was the last hurdle for Max to claim his victory for the overall win as club champion for the year 2017-2018. Although Max could not claim the win for the June shootout, our Chairman Aswing Jongsma beat him to it, Max scored enough points during the “F.A.E.S.G.V.A.S.G.B.” and has been crowned club champion for the year 2017-2018.
We hope to see you all next year and beat Max to become the club champion of 2018 – 2019
On behalf of the 16th board, have a great summer and enjoy your free time to practice your golf game
Friday the 8th of June 15 brave pirates ventured out to the Biesbosch to have a laugh, drink and some more drinks. The weather in Eindhoven was terrible but in Drimmelen the sun came out and we even had a swim on the Aakvlaai! After returning in Eindhoven the BBQ was lit and we ended the day with a full stomach. For an impression of the day see the photos below!
On Tuesday the 29th the first ever tournament between GCE and E.S.G.V. was held. On arrival, it was all friendly between the teams and everybody enjoyed a piece of cake and a cup of coffee. But when Andrew announced that it was time to play the atmosphere changed, both teams wanted to win this prestigious tournament. The tournament existed of two times 9 holes, the first nine holes the format best ball was played and the second nine greensome. GCE took a quick lead, leading with 4-2 after the first 9 holes.
Because not all participant were aged below 25 there was a BBQ to strengthen up and talk tactics within the teams, while enjoying a beer and some meat. The students had a productive meeting and did manage to win the first two greensome matches to even the score to 4-4, with still 4 teams in play everything could happen. GCE and E.S.G.V. played the best they could.
Eventually, GCE managed to win one more game, the other 3 were won by E.S.G.V. totalling the score on 5-7. This making E.S.G.V. the winner of the first encounter between GCE and E.S.G.V. Afterwards both teams enjoyed a second BBQ and some more beers and had an amazing evening.
The most memorable shot of the night was a hole in one by Niek Rijkmans on hole 3 using his lob wedge to his advantage! We would like to thank Andrew Scullion for the organisation and hopefully meet GCE again next year during the second inter-club tournament.
The 16th of may we played 9 holes and had a nice dinner at Gendersteyn.
We all had a lot of fun and some of us even lowered their handicap!
For the students who just started golfing it was a great opportunity to see what golf is all about.
After a lot of positive reactions, we would like to organise more of those events in the future.
Hopefully, a lot of you guys will join them as well!
Wednesday the 9th of may, members of E.S.G.V. de Club will battle to become club champion for the month of may. The winner will also take home some green fee cards sponsored by Burggolf location Gendersteyn! This course was also the venue of our tournament, the ANWB Dutch Student Masters and offers a good deal to play for a good price.
Come and join us during the may shootout, we are also open to non-members!
For non-members, the costs for the BBQ will be €7,50
Despite some rain, we had a lot of fun during the second business meetup with HyTEPS!
After a round of 9 holes with almost golf balls and a lot of fun the ‘gong challenge’ has been played with 2 teams, the entrepreneurs vs the students. There is no clear winner yet, thus come and join us on the last two events!
We thank HyTEPS and the Student Sportcentre for organising this great activity and opportunity.
Furthermore, we hope to see you all on the 22nd of September on golf course Stippelberg in Bakel.
