Columbia College golf gets new home

Monday, July 29, 2013 | 8:21 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA - Columbia Country Club will be the new home course for the Columbia College men’s and women’s golf teams beginning Thursday.

“I am very excited to have our teams at Columbia Country Club moving forward,” said Columbia Head Coach John Utley. “With the renovations that have been made over the past year, C.C.C. will provide a great opportunity for our teams to continue improving their skills and developing into successful competitors. We are also looking forward to hosting our first home event, the Columbia College Cougar Classic on October 14th and 15th, and hope everyone will come see the new and improved Columbia Country Club and cheer on the Cougars.”

The two programs are each heading into their second season after a successful inaugural year at A.L. Gustin, which served as their home course.

The Columbia men’s team will kick off their fall season at the Missouri Intercollegiate Golf Tournament in Sunrise Beach on Sept. 3 and 4. The Columbia women’s squad will open up at the Baker University Fall Invitational on Sept. 15 and 16 in Lenexa, Kan.

In addition to being the new home course of the Cougars, Columbia Country Club has also served as host of the Cougar Club and Scholarship Fund Golf Tournament for 12 of the event’s 13 years.
