The Cen-Tex Grasshoppers are a group of senior golfers that was chartered in 1979. The Cen-Tex Grasshoppers previously required a membership with Golf Card International.  However, that is no longer a requirement for membership.  Our purpose is to enjoy the game of golf while creating new friends.  Fun and fellowship are major aspects of our group. 

We organize and conduct eight two-day tournaments each year in the general geographic areas between the piney woods of East Texas and the hill country of Central Texas.  The evening before each tournament we meet for a “Tailgate Party” where we are informed which members will participate on what teams and the format of the golf tournament.

The USGA rules are generally followed with a few modifications. Members come to us with a range of handicaps, including some very low to very high.  All are welcome whatever your handicap, remembering that fun and fellowship are the keys to our success.

Generally, our membership consists of senior citizens fifty-five and older with a few of our members being slightly younger and some in their nineties. However, we are all young at heart and ready to play golf while enjoying one another’s company. 

Our membership is limited and while we are at the maximum right now, please contact the Directors to have your name put on the waiting list or if you would like more information about our group.

We are looking forward to another year of fun, fellowship, and competitive golf.

GREETINGS FROM THE DIRECTORS

Lozano Golf Center Recap


Our first tournament of the 2015 Season is history!  We had a wonderful outing at the Lozano Golf Center in beautiful Corpus Christi with 91 Cen-Tex Grasshoppers.  The weather was kind to us and even though in great shape, the golf course was a bit damp to say the least.  However, had our tournament been scheduled the prior week, it would have been canceled due to rain.  We were lucky!


The Lozano Golf Center was a new venue for us and it seemed to receive accolades from many of our members.  Who knows, we may return!  We put in place “Play Ready Golf” techniques at this event and during our second day, they really seemed to move our pace of play along much better than our first day.  We will continue to encourage a smooth but reasonable pace of play.


Our next outing is coming up fast – April 21-22 at The Buckhorn in Comfort – a familiar setting for us.  As you read in the bulletin, we will have a fun format on our second day that will challenge our scoring table folks.  Therefore, we will be looking at techniques to expedite the score card checking process following completion of rounds.


A special thank you goes to our Corpus Christi contingency for hosting the Tailgate Party!  We look forward to seeing everyone at The Buckhorn soon!!
