Senior Olympics Golf

One of our very own, Susan Berry, is in charge of the Golf event for the NW Louisiana Senior Olympics this year.  Please put the date of April 15 on your calendar and plan to play in this Louisiana Senior Olympics qualifiying event.  If you place first, second, or third in your age range or shoot a qualifying score, you can move on to the State event which is held in October in the Baton Rouge area.  From there you can move all the way to Nationals!

To partipate in this event, or any of dozens of Senior Olympics events, you must first pay a $15 general entry fee which entitles you to participate in three different sports.  That $15 also gives you a beautifully designed Sr. Olympics tee shirt.  Some of the events involve an extra fee and Golf is one of those.  You will need to pay an additional $30 fee for the golfing event which will be held at Crooked Hollow on April 15 at 8:30am.  In addition to the golfing, you will also get a free lunch which is always VERY GOOD as well as some other freebies.

The entry form and all the details can be found online at http://www.nwlsog.org/Please be advised that the date shown on the entry form for the golf event is INCORRECT.  It SHOWS April 22 but the correct date is APRIL 15.

Susan is also in charge of the new Miniature Golf competition which will be held on Thursday, May 5, at Pary Central in Bossier City at 6:30pm.  There is a $4 fee for this event.

In addition to these two golf events, there is a Golf Chipping and Putting event at the Practice Tee on Benton Rd at 1:30pm on Sunday, May 15.

Check out the list of events at the link shown above and join in the fun.  You might win an Olympic Medal!
