The Louisiana Open hits town in about a month and if you love puppies and golf, then THIS is your chance to combine your two loves. The Cypress Bayou Casino is sponsoring a $1 million Hole-In-One Shootout to try and help raise money for the Looziana Basset Rescue.

Starting February 28th, you have seven chances to shoot your way into the million dollar swing-off at Le Triomphe Golf and Country Club on March 2nd. One buck gets you one hack and the five closest shots to the pin each qualifying day puts you in the finals and ALL the money raised goes towards finding good homes for abandoned and mistreated basset hounds. The dates and times for the qualifying days are below:

Saturday, February 28th: The Wetlands, 10-4 p.m.
Sunday, March 1st: Oakbourne Country Club (members only) 10-4 p.m.
Saturday, March 14th: Farm d'Allie Golf Club, 10-4 p.m.
