MVTTC is very excited to announce that we will be hosting our annual golf tournament this year at the new Bayou Oaks South Course at City Park.  The golf tournament will take place on Wednesday, February 7, 2018 and will begin at 9:00 a.m., registration to begin at 8:00 a.m.  We believe that this location will offer a challenge for golfers and a chance to try one of New Orleans newest and most popular courses.  The tournament will take place rain or shine.

City Park is rich in golf history dating back to the construction of the first 9-holes in 1902. The Park had four courses at its peak, including the number one course which hosted the New Orleans Open 13 times from 1938-1962. Greats of the game including Nicklaus, Palmer, Hogan, and Sarazen have walked the fairways of City Park.

Hurricane Katrina left City Park decimated and only the North Course reopened after the storm. On April 21, 2017, the new South Course opened.

The South Course is a result of a partnership between the Bayou District Foundation (BDF) and City Park, who teamed up with Rees Jones to design a world-class course. Through this partnership with City Park, BDF will share in the net profit from golf operations, which will support BDF’s education and community programs that aim to break the cycle of poverty.
