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.
