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.

Raven Nest GC – Huntsville Tournament Rained Out

The Raven Nest GC – Huntsville Golf Tournament was cancelled due to very wet weather and course conditions.  Equipment could not get on the water-logged course resulting in tall grass on the fairways and unbelievably high rough areas.  Rain continued following cancellation of the tournament.  We regret that the weather did not cooperate with us because the Raven Nest GC is a beautiful venue even though quite challenging and it has been quite some time since the Grasshoppers have been in the area.

We now look forward to our next beautiful venue – Cowan Creek GC in Sun City/Georgetown on June 9th and 10th.  The course is Closed on Monday, June 8th; HOWEVER, we have arranged for them to open especially for those Cen-Tex Grasshoppers who have arranged Tee Times by calling during June 1st – June 3rd @ the Pro Shop (512-948-7580).  The only times on Monday, June 8th that will be available to us are between 9:00 – 11:00 AM.  We must call between June 1st and June 3rd to arrange these tee times -- Good Luck!  Otherwise, we are on our own to practice on days other than June 8th.  Be advised that course availability is typically very limited in the mornings due to Sun City resident play. 

Reminders:  The Cut-Off for our Hotel Reservation Rate is Friday, May 29th and the Tournament Entry Deadline is Tuesday, June 2nd!

We look forward to seeing everyone in Sun City!
