SWAGA Oklahoma
Johnny McClaren Memorial Golf Tournament 2018

I don’t know what it is about our group and Oklahoma weather. We were just talking about it and I believe we have played about 9 years at Winstar or/and Chickasaw Point in Oklahoma. Do you know how many complete two-day rounds we have played? If my memory serves me correctly, we have accomplished that feat only once in nine years!! We did get in 1 and ½ rounds the weekend Oklahoma had the severe weather and hurricanes. We spent the rest of that round in the Casino, the safest place in the area.

Well, holding true to form, our second round of golf this year was rained out!! You could drive 20 miles in any direction and be dry as a bone with sunshine; just not at the golf course!! They later allowed gofers on the course with “cart path only” rules. The membership voted to award the trophies based on the first round’s scores and call it a day.

The excitement was not over yet though. Four of our golfers decided to go ahead and play the second day on their own. Mark Barton, Dexter Tutor, Tom Stiles and Dave Regier played the course again. On the par 3 number 12, Tom made a Hole In One!!! Wish he had done that a day earlier, then he would have had to buy us all a beer!!!! Ha Congratulations to Tom! (Photo Attached) I am also including a group photo. Since it was raining, we just bunched up in the dining area of the club house. Look closely, you might see someone you know or someone you haven’t seen in a while. If you are not in the picture, that is because you were not there and we are certainly sorry you couldn’t make it. Maybe next year!!!

Hope to see you all in Brownwood, October 12, 13, 14, 2018, at the Hideout Golf Club.

Our History

Founded in 1987, Southwest Amputee Golf Association is a non-profit charitable association founded to help amputees get out and discover there is life after a traumatic injury. Our golfers range in skill from people who shoot 18 hole scores in the 70s to others shooting around 120. We have people ranging in age from teenagers to people in their 80s. Both women and men participate and play in their respective flights.

For about 25 years now, we have hosted tournaments in the Dallas/Ft. Worth and Austin areas. Our tournaments usually attract around 60 to 70 participants. (We have a membership/mailing list of about 350 golfers.) If space allows, we let visiting non-amputees such as family members and close friends play in a Guest Flight (usually about 15 to 20 people). Guests pay all their own expenses but we do furnish prizes and/or trophies for them.

Membership

Regular memberships are open to any amputee who has anatomically lost a hand or foot at a major joint ... wrist/elbow/shoulder/ankle/knee/hip.

Associate memberships are available to anyone who desires to support the Southwest Amputee Golf Association.

Our membership page has a more detailed explanation of membership requirements and a membership application.

Events

S.W.A.G.A., the Southwest Amputee Golf Association, is the center piece for the southwestern region of the National Amputee Golf Association. The states that fall under our responsibilities are Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Louisiana, and Arkansas.

We have most recently held golf tournaments for amputees in Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. It is our goal to be able to expand the reach of amputee golf to all the states in our region. We are actively seeking host volunteers for tournaments in those other states. There are a few tournaments being held in Kansas and Missouri, not hosted by SWAGA, that also offer golf tournaments for amputees. As we get information about these events, we will post it on our web site.

If you are interested in hosting an event in your state, we would be excited to work with you in furthering amputee golf. Please contact us if you have an interest.
