Betty Puskar Golf Classic

The Betty Pusker Golf Classic was an annual golf tournament for professional women golfers on the Futures Tour, the LPGA Tour's developmental tour. The event was part of the Futures Tour's schedule from 1992 through 2007. It took place at The Pines Country Club in Morgantown, West Virginia.

The tournament was a 54-hole event, as are most Futures Tour tournaments, and included pre-tournament pro-am opportunities, in which local amateur golfers can play with the professional golfers from the Tour as a benefit for local charities. The benefiting charity for the Betty Pusker Golf Classic was the Betty Puskar Breast Care Center.

The tournament was last held August 10–12, 2007.
