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.

2014 SWGA Championship

Shreveport Country Club hosted the annual Shreveport Women’s Golf Association Championship on September 3 and 4.  The small number of participants did not discourage the twenty-two ladies that did play.
The first day was marvelous weather after much rain the day before, causing the ladies to use the “lift, clean, and replace” rule, with everyone teeing off with tee times on the first hole.  When the day was done, a score of 81 won the Medalist trophy by KATHY DAVIS of Southern Trace.  The Low Net Medalist was CATHY BUCKLEY of Shreveport CC with a net score of 70.
The second day was a scorcher and everyone teed off at 9:00am.  About five hours later, a not-so-new Champion was crowned:  MARY LYNN STUART of Eastridge CC, won for the second year in a row with scores of 84 and 80, beating the closest competitor, VICKI CELLA, by five strokes.  But Vicki, of Shreveport CC, claimed the Net Champion trophy with her net scores of 71 and 68.  Overall low putts for the two days went to Donna Cobb (SCC) with just 61 putts, inching out Vicki Cella who had 62.

A highlight of the championship this year was the involvement of the Heart of Hope Ministry who donated a 4-person team spot at their HOH Classic on September 22.  The objective was to get more women involved in the tournament.  To make it fair, interesting, and helpful to HOH, every person who has played in an SWGA event for the entire year had their name placed on a ticket for each event.  In addition, they could buy extra chances, with that money going directly to Heart of Hope.  This venture gave us a donation of over $300 to our SWGA Team benefactor.

Caryn Jenkins of the HOH, drew the lucky tickets.  The rule was that if your name was drawn, you had to play yourself or give up the spot.  Therefore, several backup tickets were also drawn.  The four winners were drawn:  Grace Ireland, Kathy Davis, Shirley Pettitt, and Martha Lawhorne.  The alternates were, in this order: Kathleen McCoy, Jane Smith, Cathy Buckley.  Grace declined to play, so the first alternate made the team.  In addition to this donated team, another ladies team of SWGA members signed up, giving us a great showing at the tournament.
