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.

Quail Valley GC Recap

November 10 & 11, 2015

First and foremost, we are very pleased to announce that Joe & Melissa Smith have volunteered to be our Assistant Directors for the 2016 season.  We think you all know what that means...there will be new Sheriffs in town for the 2017/2018 seasons!  Please join us in congratulating...and thanking...the Smith’s for stepping up to ensure the future of this great organization!

Our final tournament of the 2015 season was a big success!  The Super Senior Tees and the “pushed forward” tees for both the regular men and women seemed to work out alright even though our golf skills may not have been as sharp as we may have wanted.  The La Quinta Golf Course proved challenging and the Quail Valley Golf Facilities were awesome!  In addition, the staff were so accommodating allowing us to have a very pleasant experience at golf and our banquet.

Our Annual Banquet was also a success and enjoyed by those attending.  Goodie Bags with special Cen-Tex Grasshopper gifts were shared along with the 2016 Cen-Tex Grasshopper Golf Season Schedule.  In addition, a summary of the 2015 season was shared as well as a photo slideshow displayed by Paul and Annabel Sparkman.

The 2016 Membership Renewal notices will be sent around the first of December.  Be sure to review the information for details and submit your renewals by/before December 31st.

If you have recommendations for new Grasshoppers, please send their information to us so we may invite them to join our organization.  Invitations will be sent in early January.

We hope that you & yours have a

Happy & Blessed Thanksgiving!!
