Women's Southern Golf Association Senior Championship

Are you “up” for a golf trip that’s about as close as you can get to the pro circuit?  This is it!

The Women’s Southern Golf Association (WSGA) is hosting its 29th Annual Senior Championship at Riverhill Country Club in Kerrville, Texas, right in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, October 6-8.
The WSGA consists of fifteen southern states, and the tournament moves from one area to the other from year-to-year to afford everyone an opportunity to participate.  No matter WHERE the tournament is held, it is very professionally done.  You are even ANNOUNCED at the first tee on the first day.  And there are “spotters” on the course to help find the balls and keep it moving.

To play in this stroke-play championship, you must be fifty years old and have a handicap index of 23.5 or less.  It is flighted and also includes a “Super Senior Champion” if you are seventy or over.

The course is awesome….a Byron Nelson design.  Go online and look at pictures and the scorecard.  Kerrville is west of Austin in a beautiful area of the state and in October, it should be bursting with color.  The trip is less than 7 hours from the heart of Shreveport.

The $250 entry fee includes the three days of golf for the competition and a practice round (excluding cart), dinner party the night before competition, and awards luncheon.  Click here for the entire brochure and entry information.  Be sure to check out the video presentation of the course on that site.
