Views of Northwood Hills GC where LANDERS Dodge
Chrysler Jeep will present the annual NWLSOG Golf Tournament
Northwood Hills Golf Club will be the site of the 2009 Northwest Louisiana District Senior Olympics golf tournament April 24. LANDERS Dodge Chrysler Jeep is the presenter of this year’s event.
As part of the event, LANDERS will offer an automobile as reward to the first senior participant making a hole-in-one on a par three hole to be designated before play begins.
Located off the Old Mooringsport Road in Blanchard, just 10 minutes from downtown Shreveport, the pine-laden, gently-rolling par 72 Northwood Hills course is where a young Hal Sutton honed his game and began a career that produced 14 professional titles, including a PGA Championship.
New course manager Eddie Sageer said the course will provide a good test for the seniors and promised a tournament they will enjoy.”The staff is excited about having the opportunity to host the seniors,” Sageer said. He pointed out that Northwood Hills has been undergoing yearly maintenance on greens and throughout the course and it should be in prime shape for the senior event.
As part of the tournament, LANDERS will present a new car to any senior entrant making a hole-in-one on a par three to be designated before the tournament begins.
“This is another step in our effort to provide different venues for our senior golfers,” said Gary Price, coordinator of golf for the district. “We will periodically entertain ideas for new surroundings, but we are pleased to be at Northwood Hills and look forward to a long stay.”
The district tournament is a qualifying event for the LSOG tournament to be played in Baton Rouge later in the year. The top three scorers in each age and sex category will qualify for the state competition as will those players whose score meets minimum requirements for their age.
Entry forms can be downloaded from “entry blanks” on this website. They will be available at Northwood Hills and other area golf clubs by February 20.
