It's time again for the Senior Olympics events to kick off in the Northwest Louisiana District. There are countless games in which to participate from March 26 to May 31st.
Obviously, this post is to encourage you to participate in the GOLF EVENT on April 22nd, held at Northwood Golf and Country Club, 5000 Northwood Hills Drive, Shreveport, LA. There is a Chip and Putt contest that precedes the golfing that day and starts at 8:30am. The Golfing event starts at 9:30am. The facility fee of $35 includes both events and has in the past included a luncheon.
This is a "scratch" event so your handicap doesn't come into play as you are competing in "age" brackets. The top three in each age bracket (male and female) win Gold, Silver and Bronze medals which automatically qualifies you to compete in the State Event later in the year, usually in South Louisiana. You can go all the way to the National event if you stay in the winning categories. You can also qualify to move on to the State event based on your score.
