        The 25th Annual Poppa Lou Golf Classic was played on Saturday July 17, 2021. There are no plans for the 26th Poppa Lou.

        Note:  The Blackhead Golf Club has indicated that holding Poppa Lou Golf Classic on Satruday is no longer possible and that it must be played on either Friday or Sunday. It is unclear as to whether this will allow the event to continue as it has been held in the past. Hopefully something can be worked out.

        Register for future Poppa Lout Golf Classic celebrations will be announced once it is determined that the event will be continued.  If you have questions please contact us by clicking HERE.

        Background: The first "Poppa Lou" was played 25 years ago at the suggestion of Bart Liverish & Gerry Cross to be a tribute to family icon Lou Parsons who everyone loved and who himself loved golf.   This special event has survived for 25 years because family and friends who wished to honor Poppa Lou supported it by playing in the event year after year.
