The National Golf Club of Louisiana, located in Westlake, La. and managed by Billy Casper Golf (BCG), has been selected for the second consecutive year by the Adams Golf Pro Tour Series to host the 2011 Southwest Louisiana Open, Wednesday-Saturday, March 23-26.
The 72-hole, stroke-play tournament will be contested among approximately 100 golfers competing for an $85,000 purse. The field will be cut to the top 35 percent, and ties, after 36 holes. Practice rounds will be Monday, Pro-Am is on Tuesday and the tournament starts at 8 a.m. on Wednesday. The event is free and open to the public.
“We’re proud the Adams Golf Pro Tour Series once again chose The National to host this event,” says Ron Brown, General Manager of The National Golf Club of Louisiana. “Our staff will ensure the course is in top condition and offer a tough but enjoyable test for the competitors.”
The National Golf Club of Louisiana is the centerpiece of a new, 600-plus-acre, master-planned residential community. Stately Louisiana soft-pines and dramatic vistas highlight golf-course architect Dave Bennett’s par-72, 6,946-yard layout featuring 14 lakes, 80 bunkers and some of western Louisiana’s largest and most challenging greens.
