A long time ago, several enthusiastic senior golfers thought that there should be
some kind of state tournament for golfers 55 and older. These extraordinary gentleman
came together and formed The Wyoming Senior Golfers' Association. At the time the
Wyoming Golf Association did not offer a Senior Amateur. So for the last 58 years The
Wyoming Senior Golfers' Association has been providing a state tournament for seniors.
In the last few years, since the Wyoming Golf Association now offers a Senior Amateur,
The Wyoming Senior Golfers' Association tournament has evolved into a less competitive
event, but offers competition and comaraderie to golfers age 50 and over. We offer good
times on the course and off. The annual banquet gives everyone a chance to socialize
and meet other golfers from around the state.
Jim Caldwell, John Hornbeck, and John Lindeman earn tournament honors
The 2016 annual tournament was held at Glenn Jacoby golf course in Laramie. It was the 58th annual tournament of the Wyoming Senior
Golfers' Association. John Hornbeck once again took the overall championship, with John Lindeman taking the overall net championship.
in the Senior Senior (golfers 78 and older) division, Jim Caldwell took home the trophy for low gross.
The tournament director David Williams, with the help of Laramie visitors center director Fred Okers did a wonderful job, working long
hours to ensure that things went smoothly. Although Sunday's practice round was hot, the weather for the tournament rounds was excellent
for golf. Not to hot, a little wind on Monday, but Tuesday's weather was excellant. Small rain shower toward the end of the round didn't
dampen anyone's enthusiasm.
The course was in superb condition, greens were absolutely smooth and true. The Pro Shop staff was very friendly and helpful. Rides to
and from the parking lot were really appreciated, as well as rides to the driving range, I thank them! In the club house, the staff did a really
outstanding job. The staff could not have been more accommodating. Every desire was met with a smile and a thank you.
