The annual Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame Golf Classic, presented by Relief Windows, been postponed until Sunday, May 17-Monday, May 18 due to impact of the global coronavirus (COVID-19).
The tournament pairings party and 18-hole scramble tournament were initially scheduled for April 5-6 at the Golden Nugget-Lake Charles. The closure of all Louisiana casino facilities now has forced the event to be pushed back six weeks.

“We have a wonderful sponsor in Relief Windows and a tremendous host at the Golden Nugget-Lake Charles, and continue to look forward to our second golf tournament in Lake Charles,” said Ronnie Rantz, CEO/President of the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame Foundation. “We’ll aim for May 17-18 and await the green light.”
Registration remains open for the event on the LaSportsHall.com website, along with participation opportunities for the 2020 Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame Induction Celebration June 25-27 in Natchitoches.
Nearly 30 teams and sports celebrities, including nearly two dozen Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame members, participated in the 2019 golf event at the Golden Nugget-Lake Charles.
