2014  W. E. Cole Cotton  States Invitational Welcome to the 63   rd annual
W. E. Cole Cotton States Invitational Golf Tournament. This is a match play event held annually at Bayou DeSiard Country Club in Monroe, Louisiana. The 2014 tournament will be held from July 23-27, attracting many of the top collegiate and amateur players from around the country.
The Cotton States has a long, rich history and  tradition of high level competition. Over the years, several past contestants and champions have moved on to success as an amateur and on the PGA Tour. The 2013 Champion was Ian Davis from Edmond Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University and the runner up was Preston Stanley from Katy, Texas and Houston Baptist University.   
The W. E. Cole Cotton States Invitational Golf Tournament is affiliated with the Scratch Players World Amateur Ranking system and the top finishers will receive world ranking points. The Bayou Desiard Country Club Golf Course is a Perry Maxwell / Ron Prichert designed course with 419 Bermuda fairways and MiniVerde   on the greens. It plays at 7234 yards from the Championship tees. The committee feels these changes are very positive and will create an exciting challenge for all competitors.
In our continuing effort to make the Cotton States a better tournament and raise the quality of the field, the tournament committee has made a few changes to this years format. This year all Cotton States contestants must have a 0.0 USGA certified handicap index or less to enter. Any player ranked in the top 500 of the Scratch Players World Amateur Ranking is exempt. The first 80 players entered and accepted by the committee will play a 36-hole stroke play qualifying with the low thirty-two qualifiers advancing to match play. The match play portion of the tournament will consist of five matches to  be played over the next 3 days.
