NW Louisiana Senior Olympics

The NW Louisiana Senior Olympics has expanded its events for 2014, so surely there is something that fits your passion.  Obviously, for us that read this blog, the golfing events are foremost.

A link to the entire schedule is provided here with all the events.  But for us golfers, the regular stroke play golfing event will be held at 8:30am on Friday, April 25, at Shreveport Country Club. Please note that the Senior Olympics link provided above shows the event at Northwood, but that has been changed.  There is a $35 facility fee.  Winners/qualifiers from this event are eligible to advance to state, regional, and ultimately, to the national competition.

To be eligible to advance, you must win first-, second-, or third place in your age category OR you may qualify even if you don't win a medal.  For women 50-69 yrs. young, you must shoot 105 or below; 70-79 yrs. must shoot 110 or less; and 80+ must complete the round in four hours.  For men 50-69 yrs. must shoot 100 or less; 70-79 must shoot 105 or less; and 80+ must finish in four hours.

There is also a chipping and putting competition to be held on Sunday, April 27, at the Practice Tee on Benton Rd. at I-220 at 2:00pm

And for the real fun-lovers, there will be a miniature golf competition at Party Central, 4401 Viking Drive, Bossier City, on Thursday, May 8, at 6:30pm.  There is a $5 facility fee for this event.

To participate in any of the Senior Olympic events, you must pay a $15 fee which also includes a colorful Senior Olympics tee shirt.  Our own Susan Berry is in charge of all the golfing events for the Senior Olympics.  If you have questions that aren't answered in the link provided above, contact Susan at 929-4878.
