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.

LWGA State Match Play

The State Amateur Match Play Championship was played at the prestigious TPC New Orleans, home of the PGA Zurich Classic. Although this writer didn’t witness it personally, the pictures show what a beautiful course it is indeed.
Only five of our SWGA ladies were able to make the trip this year: Teri McGuire, Mary Jo Gray, Debbie Magee, Robbie Gaiennie, and Phyllis Ryan. All the ladies except Teri won their first match of the three-day tournament. That put Teri into the Consolation Bracket (which isn’t a bad thing), while the others moved into the Winners Bracket. On the second day, everyone lost her match except Mary Jo, who went on to play in the finals. However, Mary Jo lost her last match, placing second in the Third Flight. Congratulations to all our ladies.

This year’s Match Play winners were Champion Ali Lucas of Monroe, Second Place Heather Lott of Baton Rouge, and Third Place Jennifer Nguyen of Salmen. Way to go, girls!
The next Ladies State competition is the State Best Ball Championship which is being played right here at our own Shreveport Country Club on August 1-2. Entries will be accepted until July 20th, so you still have time to enter. See the article in the right column of this blog for more information and the entry form.

Thanks to Mary Jo Gray for being our photographer for this event. She captured some neat scenes. You may feel that you are seeing a lot of the same people in the pictures, but look past the people at the scenery. It’s really great. Enjoy.
