KINDER, LOUISIANA, USA, September 29, 2023 / -- The Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana will host its 21st annual Chairman’s Cup charity golf tournament October 3-5, 2023. These yearly funds are used to support local charities and institutions across Southwest Louisiana.

The Chairman’s Cup charity golf tournament has been called ‘the best golf tournament in the South.’ At this prestigious signature event, tournament players will be treated to a variety of perks, including a lavish “Peace, Love & Golf” meet-and-greet party on Wednesday night in the resort’s new Entertainment Center. Tournament participants will enjoy a fun-filled ‘60’s & ‘70’s-themed evening with live music by popular regional band Three Thirty Seven, plus cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a multitude of door prizes.

During tournament play, golfers will enjoy fast, smooth greens with pristine fairways in a stunning landscape of stately pines, huge live oaks and large, serene lakes on the resort’s award-winning course. Players will be treated to a huge range of on-the-course amenities. Every hole will feature curated offerings of food and beverages, plus chances to win a variety of tee, hole, and raffle prizes. Each day’s tournament will conclude with a gourmet steak dinner for participants at the awards ceremony, including a mystery prize for the best dressed team. New this year, four golfers each day will be randomly drawn to take a 50-foot putt for the chance to win $20,000 cash!

This extremely popular event has grown into three tournament days and boasts a total of nearly 400 golfers competing, using the Peoria-style scoring system to determine tournament winners. This year, the Buccaneers of Lake Charles (who fire the cannon at McNeese State football games) will fire a cannon at 10am (shotgun start) to start each tournament day “with a bang,” and signal the beginning of each day’s 4-man scramble event.

About the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana
The Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana was officially recognized by the United States federal government in 1973, and it marked a major turning point in tribal history in 1985 with the election by popular vote of the first Coushatta tribal government. From their earliest days as a proud hard-working people struggling to maintain long-standing traditions in the face of possible relocation, the Coushatta Indians have endured and overcome every hardship they have faced and have remained on tribal lands in and around Elton, Louisiana since the 1800s. Despite serious setbacks and some population dispersal, the tribe’s character and ideals have not only held fast, but have been strengthened. The Coushatta language, Koasati, is now considered unique among Native Americans because it has survived in its purest form and is still spoken fluently in the Coushatta community today. The Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana owns and operates Coushatta Casino Resort, which employs more than 1,400 area residents.
