Chitimacha Louisiana Open events canceled but tournament to be played with restricted fan access
LOUISIANA OPEN, INC. STATEMENT REGARDING THE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
March 12, 2020
Today, PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan announced that all PGA Tour events (across all Tours, this includes Korn Ferry Tour events) will be played, but without fans. This decision was made as the coronavirus continues to be a public health threat.
With the threat at the forefront of public events, we have made a decision to cancel the series of Chitimacha Louisiana Open events that lead up to championship play. This includes the upcoming weekend Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel Million Dollar Hole-in-One qualifying along with the hole in one finals on Sunday; the Tournament Kick-Off Bash sponsored by Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel Monday night; the FCA Junior GameDay sponsored by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana Tuesday afternoon; the Eat Lafayette Taste of the South on Tuesday night; and the First National Bank of Jeanerette and Dwight Andrus Insurance Pro-Ams scheduled for Wednesday.
Tournament play will commence on Thursday morning, but as stated earlier, with no fans allowed on the grounds of Le Triomphe Golf & Country Club.
We take great pride in being a community event for OUR community, and we thank you for your patience as we continue to navigate through a plan for the tournament. All tickets purchased for the 2020 event will either be refunded or credited towards the 2021 tournament. The Chitimacha Louisiana Open has been a mainstay in Acadiana and we appreciate your support.
This is a tough situation for everyone involved, but as we have always tried to do, we will continue to do what is in the best interest of our community. Again, thank you to everyone for your understanding and we hope your support will continue in 2021 as we will celebrate our 30-year anniversary next March.
