About Us....

The Shreveport Womens Golf Association was formed in 1933 for the purpose of promoting good fellowship and friendly competition among local amateur women golfers. Ladies in this association (SWGA) must have a handicap index of 30.0 or less.

Our sister group, the Shreveport Senior Womens Golf Association, was created for the same purpose, but includes only ladies who have reached at least their fiftieth birthday.
Ladies can be members of either or both organizations as long as they meet the eligibility requirements and pay the appropriate membership dues to each group. This membership entitles ladies to play at least once (in each association) at each of the six golf/country clubs that are participants in the SWGA and SSWGA groups: Bomber Bayou Golf Club, East Ridge Country Club, Huntington Park/Querbes Golf Clubs, Northwood Hills Golf Club, Golf Club at Stonebride, and Southern Trace Country Club.

Cleaning Tips

Thought I would share a couple easy cleaning tips that I've run across lately.

On the day of our SWGA Annual Meeting/Luncheon, a group of us were walking back to the parking garage from the University Club and we all had our arms full of "stuff".  Just as she approached the curb, Mary Gallagher tripped on the unlevel curb and went down, face-first on the edge of Travis Street!  She bled ALOT and was wearing the red all over her clothing by the time we were able to get her back on her feet.  (Hold on, I'm getting to my cleaning tip.)

As we helped her up, I got a spot of blood on the sleeve of my beige jacket.  I didn't have anything to clean it with at that point and forgot about it until I got home several hours later.  In the meantime, someone had told me about using plain ol' hydrogen peroxide to get the stain out. 

I figured I'd have the stain forever to remind me of Mary's scary fall.  BUT, when I got home, I put some peroxide on a cotton ball and dabbed the spot.  It was a miracle!  The blood disappeared.  A day or so later, I dropped chocolate syrup (fat-free/sugar free of course) on my white sweat shirt.  Used the peroxide and sure enough, the stain was gone.

I did a little research on it and found that some people had problems with discoloration on white clothes after using the peroxide IF THEY DIDN'T RINSE IT WELL after using the peroxide.  So beware of that possibility; but for most stains, I hear it works very well....including pet stains on carpet.

Incidently, after a couple weeks of hurting alot, Mary went to the ER and found that she had broken a rib, so no golf for her for a number of weeks.  Hopefully, she'll be healed up just in time for Spring golf!

My second cleaning tip is something I discovered to clean my golf shoes:  Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.  I love it.  If you've never used it, it's a fine-textured sponge that doesn't require any soap.  Just wet it and use it.  All the discolored marks on my golf shoes disappear with just a wipe of the sponge. 

They are also great for cleaning shower doors and appliances.  I understand you have to be careful with appliances with a shiny black finish as the sponge will work so well it dulls the finish.  I personally use them on my satin finish stainless steel stove top and it works wonderfully.  Beware though, their life span is shorter than a "regular" sponge.

Happy Cleaning!! (LOL)
