The City of Hammond Classic was an annual golf tournament for professional women golfers on the Futures Tour, the LPGA Tour's developmental tour. The event was played each year between 2003 and 2010 in the Hammond, Indiana area.

The presenting sponsor was Horseshoe Casino, a casino located in Hammond.

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 last benefiting charity from the City of Hammond Classic was the Lake Area United Way.
