Much loved and respected golf manager John Scrivener.

The president, the board and Staff of Golf Australia express their deepest condolences for the death of the much loved and respected former Victorian Golf Association (VGA) Council Member, John Scrivener, 86 years old.

As a member of the Eastern Golf Club for 47 years, including since then as former club president and member of the Commonwealth Golf Club since 1982, John was elected to the VGA Council in 1989 and served for 20 years. He made an excellent contribution to Victorian Golf at the time, particularly in the Match program of the Association; senior golf events; junior golf events and development activities; Victorian Open; finance; rules of golf; handicaps and assessment of the course including the role of the chairman of the Regulations from 2005 to 2009.

John was a much recognized, respected and appreciated figure at VGA events and by conducting countless rules teaching seminars and course assessments in all parts of the state.

He was also a member of the VGA Selection Committee from 1998 – 2000, including the management of Victorian Colts and Junior Teams. He withdrew from the VGA council at the 2009 annual meeting, but remained active in Victorian golf as a USGA accredited course assessor and a state referee at both Australian and Victorian events.

Golf Australia's sincere condolences are currently being extended to the Scrivener family. John was a solid gentleman with a passion for golf, a friend for everyone and will unfortunately be missed.

A memorial to celebrate John's life will be held at Le Pine Chapel, 1603 Dandenong Road, Oakleigh on Wednesday, May 29, starting at 10 a.m.
