SHREVEPORT, LA. – The LSUS Athletic Department will host its first annual Hall of Fame Golf Classic on Friday, October 29 at Olde Oaks Golf Club in Haughton, Louisiana. Check-in begins at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start scheduled for 10 a.m. The cost is $125 for individual players and $500 for teams of four players.

All proceeds from the event will go towards supporting student-athlete experience and towards supporting initiatives that are critical to LSUS continuing to be a perennial nationally ranked program in the NAIA. The LSUS Athletic Department is also committed to recruiting and retaining exceptional student-athletes who will continue the program’s proud legacy of achievement in academics and athletics. 

Olde Oaks Golf Club is a beautiful 27-hole layout across 340 acres just south of Bossier City, Louisiana. The course gives a tremendous variety in both shot values and visual aesthetics. The course features five sets of tees so everyone can have an enjoyable experience, no matter their skill level. State of the art practice facilities, including an oversized putting green, ample range, and chipping green will be available before the tournament begins. 

Breakfast and lunch will be provided at the course and will feature free food and drinks from local Shreveport/Bossier businesses and restaurants. The tournament will also feature many events around the golf course including a long drive contest, hole in one contest, closest to the pin contest, and a FlingGolf contest that will involve the LSUS student-athletes and coaching staff.
