Senior Olympics Golf

The Northwest Louisiana District Senior Olympic committee is hosting lots and lots of Senior Olympics events in Shreveport/Bossier.  One of those events is golf.  This year the golf event will be hosted by Shreveport Country Club on Friday, April 24, at 9:00am.

The golf Olympics event is one where you can advance to the state, regional, and national levels.  To be eligible for participation in the Senior Olympics, you must be 50 years old as of December 31, 2014

To participate in any or all of the Senior Olympic events, you must pay a $15 membership fee.  You will receive a bright colored, good-looking tee shirt as well as other "goodies" depending on the event.  For golf, there is also a facility charge of $35 which includes golf and lunch.  Our own Susan Berry is in charge of all the golf-related events that you can enter.  Contact her at 929-4878 if you need any information that isn't provided below.

UPDATE: The link that was originally provided is one that was on their website at the time and it was for last year. I have sent the corrected info via email.
