Sponsor a team or volunteer at the 2017 LSUS Alumni Capital One Pilots Golf Classic!
THE 19TH ANNUAL TOURNAMENT IS SET FOR MONDAY, APRIL 10, 2017 AT STONEBRIDGE GOLF CLUB IN BOSSIER CITY, LA.
StoneBridge features a stunning and beautifully-maintained 18-hole championship golf course designed by PGA Tour pro Fred Couples and award-winning architect Gene Bates. It winds through a natural setting of mature oaks, small lakes and protected wetlands. The course offers 5 sets of tees to provide a fun and exciting layout for golfers of all levels. From the "gold" or championship tees, it stretches more than 7,000 yards in length. The great variety of shot values and the beautiful scenery make this a golf experience that club members and guests savor again and again.
