The Bright House Networks Open 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 1998 through 2008. From 1998 through 2003, it was played at The Club at Eaglebrooke. From 2004 to 2008, it was played at Cleveland Heights Golf Course. Both courses are located in Lakeland, Florida.

The most recent title sponsor was Bright House Networks, a cable television and digital services provider with headquarters in Syracuse, New York.

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 could play with the professional golfers from the Tour as a benefit for local charities. Charities benefiting from the Bright House Networks Open included the The First Tee of Lakeland.
