ABOUT THE Cotton States Invitational
Originally played in 1949 as the Bayou
DeSiard Labor Day Golf Tournament, the
name was changed to the Cotton States
Invitational in 1951 by the club's young head
professional, W. E. "Winnie" Cole. He felt that the
name better reflected the main states that the
tournament's players originated from (and a move
mid-summer made the name a necessity later
anyway). Little did Cole know that 27 years later, in
1978, the event would be renamed again, forever to
be known as the W. E. Cole Cotton States
Invitational Golf Tournament.
Past champions of this highly competitive, yet
tournament include Hal Sutton, Gil Morgan, and
Toms. The tournament field field is limited to 96
having a verified USGA Handicap Index not
exceeding 0.0. A 36-hole stroke play qualifier
determines the low 32 players for match play.
