Capital One Pilots Golf Classic Set for Monday, May 5

April 03, 2014

The 16th Annual LSUS Alumni Association Capital One Pilots Golf Classic offers a noon shotgun start Monday, May 5, at The Golf Club at StoneBridge in Bossier City. Capital One Bank will again serve as title sponsor.

A total of 32 team slots are available, but only two are left due to the popularity of the tournament. Team sponsorship levels range from $700 to $3,500. Fairway sponsorships with course signage only are also available at $250. Team entry fees cover greens fees, electric cart, practice range, team photos, tournament gifts, mulligans, putting contest and door prize tickets, box lunch, beverages, supper and the chance to win great prizes.

The tournament has raised almost $230,000 in its history. Proceeds benefit LSUS scholarships, programs, projects and services. Various members of the LSUS athletic staff will be on hand at several points during the day.

Tournament features include Hole-In-One Contests sponsored by Landers Dodge and Courtesy Golf Cars, the Campus Federal Credit Union Putting Contest, Gill Industries Closest-to-the-Pin Contest, The Chancellor’s Challenge and an awards ceremony. Team prizes for both flights will be awarded. The First Flight, First Place Team Prize, donated by Cypress Bend Resort, includes two-night stays for two people in a deluxe hotel room, plus two rounds of golf with carts for each team member. Cypress Bend, a member of the Audubon Golf Trail, sits on the shores of Toledo Bend Lake near Many, La.

Meals will be provided by Texas Roadhouse and McAlister’s Deli. Beverage sponsors are Eagle Distributing of Shreveport, Inc., Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Shreveport and Music Mountain Water. The sign sponsor is Signs At Work.

Located in the StoneBridge development in North Bossier City, The Golf Club at StoneBridge provides a challenging 18-hole course designed by PGA Tour professional Fred Couples and award-winning architect Gene Bates. The clubhouse includes dining room, men's and ladies’ locker rooms with lounges, and a full-service golf shop.
