Chitimacha Louisiana Open
Although the Louisiana Open is the state’s oldest professional golf tournament, dating back to the 1920s, it was not until it was incorporated into a non-profit organization in 1986 that a sincere focus on charitable organization was established. As a first year member of the then Ben Hogan Tour in 1992, the tournament distributed $14,000 dollars to three local charities. Since then, a total of over $4.6 million has been donated to numerous charities in the Acadiana area. The Chitimacha Louisiana Open presented by NACHER prides itself on being one of the top stops on the Web.com Tour in terms of volunteers, hospitality and charitable dollars donated.
