The 6th Annual Ryan Allen Guidry Memorial Golf Tournament will be held on August 5th, 2017, at Les Vieux Chenes Golf Club in Youngsville.

The 4-Man Scramble tournament will have an 8 am and 1 pm shotgun start.

The tournament was created in memory of Ryan Allen Guidry, who lost his life at the tender age of 25 while hunting with friends. In the past, the funds raised from the tournament have helped seniors from Lafayette High, Ryan's alma mater, in the form of scholarships. This year, another important cause will be added to the use of funds.

In addition to helping a Lafayette High senior realize the dream of a college education, the Guidry family has decided to help someone who is undergoing cancer treatment at MD Anderson. Some of the proceeds from the event will help cover medical costs for the patient.
