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.

Lady Bird– July 14 & 15, 2015

We survived a couple of Hill Country hot July summer days!  However, all things considering, the nice breeze made the mornings quite tolerable.  We enjoyed another fabulous outing as the Cen-Tex Grasshoppers showcased their golf skills for one another.  As always, both the Lady Bird Johnson GC and Fredericksburg were wonderful to our folks as we enjoyed our golf and our time in the town shopping and devouring food and spirits. 

Many of our Grasshoppers also enjoyed outstanding golf followed by great scores.  Be sure to notice the changes in your handicaps this time around when they are posted on our website prior to the September tournament.  Many of you deserve to be proud.  Who knows, you may even become an “A Player!”

We take our summer break in August with no tournament.  Enjoy your trips and family time while looking forward to our next tournament at the Delaware Springs Golf Course on September 15th & 16th in Burnet.  Be sure to review the bulletin for the deadlines and submit your entries on time.  If there are questions, be sure to let us know.

See you there!!
