On April 10, 2017 our group was hosted at StoneBridge Golf Club in Bossier City. 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.

Our Celebrity Long Drive Guest, Emlyn Aubrey, hit drives for each team on the challenging Hole #16 (514-yard, Par 5 with a bunker on the right and out-of-bounds on the left). Emlyn is a well-known LSU star and played on the PGA circuit. He is also Coach of the Centenary College Golf Team and we thank him! Donations received for his long drives are earmarked for Athletic Scholarships.                                         

Since 1999, the Pilots Classic has raised more than $284,000 in profits for scholarships, programs, projects and services that benefit LSUS. Of that total, more than $190,000 has gone directly to scholarships.
