The Cen-Tex Grasshoppers are a group of senior golfers that was chartered under the auspices of Golf Card International in 1979.  The Grasshoppers require that you be a member of Golf Card International.  We enjoy the game of golf and the fellowship of other golfers.  We play 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 night before a tournament, we meet for a “Tailgate Party” where we are informed which members will be on what teams and the format for the tournament.

We use many of the USGA rules, but with leniencies. We have a few members with low handicaps, but just as many with high handicaps.  All are welcome whatever your handicap, as long as you remember that we are here to have fun. 

Grasshoppers are generally considered senior citizens (but we don’t feel old). A few of our members are in their eighties and nineties, but don’t let that bother you, as one of them had a hole in one recently!

There is a limit to our membership and while we are at the max right now, please contact the Directors to have your name put on the waiting list or if you would like more information.

We had 87 Grasshoppers at the Delaware Springs Golf Course in Burnet, Texas.  Jim & Janice Boyle did a great job planning and conducting the tournament as on-the-job training for their new positions as Directors of the Grasshoppers next year!

Thanks to Andy & Irene White for a great Tailgate Party at the Hampton Inn on the Lake in Marble Falls.  

The Delaware Springs golf course was in great shape...the greens were probably the fastest we’ve seen this year.  And as usual...the snack bar did a great job keeping up with the demand from 87 hungry (and thirsty) Grasshoppers. 

Next up...the Colovista Golf Course in Bastrop on 7 & 8 October.   See you there!
