Northwestern State University will host the 42th annual Chris Roper Memorial Golf Tournament Saturday April 27 at Northwestern Hills with a kick-off party Friday, April 26. Proceeds from the tournament are used to fund two scholarships awarded each year to two deserving students who are enrolled in the Health & Human Performance Department.  

Tee time for the tournament will be at 8:30 a.m. Saturday with check-in beginning at 8 a.m.  The four-man scramble will include prizes for first, second and third place teams, closest to the hole, long drive and door prizes.  The entry fee is $300 per team or $75 per person, which includes cart, green fees, lunch and beverages. Sponsorships are available at the $500, $250 and $50 levels. Those unable to attend may consider a tee sponsorship which is $50. Tee signs are placed on different tee boxes around the course.  Lunch will be served after the awards.   

Friday’s kick-off party will be from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Antoon’s.  

Those who plan to arrive on Friday, April 29 and stay the weekend can make reservations at the Comfort Suites by calling (318) 228-8816. A special rate is available for the Chris Roper Golf Tournament.  Fifteen rooms have been set aside.   

Entry fees should be sent to Jill Bankston or Cristy Bernard, NSU Foundation, Natchitoches, LA 71497.  Checks can be made payable to the NSU Foundation Memo: Chris Roper.  For more information, contact Bernard at bernardc@nsula.edu or call (318) 357-4292.   

The tournament is held annually in memory of Chris Roper, a native of Camden, Arkansas, who was a senior and top golfer on the 1981 Demon Squad.  He was a member of the Trans-American All-Conference team, placing ninth in the league tournament.  He was killed in a traffic accident over Christmas break in 1982.  Over the years, the tournament has generated enough money to support two scholarships that provide $1,500 per semester for recipients.
