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 86 Grasshoppers play golf...and 96 attend the the River Plantation Country Club in Conroe, Texas.  We also welcomed four prospective Grasshoppers from the Waiting List:  Steve & Nancy Kay Brockhoff, Melissa Smith & Betty Morgan. 

River Plantation was in great condition...although the combination of the course layouts and formats proved to be a bit of a challenge for some.  Mike Wooldridge (Head Pro) was a pleasure to work with...and we received OUTSTANDING support from the entire River Plantation staff.  Best news of all...we completed a November tournament with NO RAIN...NO FROST...and no gloves/ear warmers!  

A special Thank You from the Grasshoppers to Carola Meneke, Karen Shaw, and Jarvis Tuggle for hosting the Tailgate Party!

And another THANK YOU & JOB WELL DONE to the 2014 Director’s Staff:  Jim & Janice Boyle (Assistant Directors; Dick & Jonna Whatley (Welcoming); Andy & Irene White (Tailgate Coordinator); Skip & Fran Ross (Scoring Chair); Frank & Ann Closs (Handicaps); and David & Charlene Brewer (WagonMeisters). 

Jim & Janice Boyle are now officially in charge of the Grasshoppers!  Look for a message from them here in the very near future...but until then, their 2015 schedule is posted now on the “Tournaments” page of this web site. 

See you in March at Corpus Christi!
