The Chris Roper Memorial Golf Tournament is held in memory of Chris Roper, who was killed in a traffic accident over the Christmas holidays in 1982. Chris, a native of Camden, Arkansas, was a senior at Northwestern State and the top golfer on the 1981 Demon Squad. He was a member of the Trans-American All-Conference team, placing ninth in the league tournament.

Proceeds from the tournament are used to fund two scholarships at Northwestern State. This scholarship is given in the memory of Chris Roper. These scholarships are given to two deserving students who are Health and Human Performance majors at Northwestern. Over the years this event has generated enough money to support two scholarships that provide $1,500 per semester for the recipients.
