We are sorry to inform you that the Columbia Golf Foundation June summer golf camp season has been canceled. The University of Missouri is not allowing group gatherings in June, so there won’t be any June camp activities at Gustin golf course.
Any decision on future July and August gatherings will be made in mid-June, and we will notify you if we can set up any camps then. We will refund you your money in current camp registrations through Eventbrite.
We hope you realize that the safety of you and your children is foremost in our programs. Thank you for your support and hope to see you as soon as it is possible.

HUDSON DUBINSKI WINS 2016 CITY TITLE
As in the past few years, a youngster defeated the best players Columbia has to offer when Hudson Dubinski, a 16-year old junior to be at Rock Bridge, shot a final round 71 ( 1-under) at The Club at Old Hawthorne.
He wrapped up the 3-day City Championship at 211, also 1-under par to claim the Rex Dillow Cup.
Mike Wilson used a hot start at A.L. Gustin on Friday to jump the competition in the Senior Division; and he closed the deal Sunday at Old Hawthorne, his home track, to win the Jim McKinney Cup for golfers between the ages of 50 and 65.
Don Steele won his second straight Super Senior title (for players over 65) with a birdie on #1, the first playoff hole against runner-up Bob Hutton. The two tied at 220 (+8) for the 3-day tournament.

The Tri-Hog Invitational, benefitting the Columbia Golf Foundation’s Golf in Schools Program, was held at Columbia Country Club on September 30th. The event was a major success, with 104 golfers participating!
The day began with a lunch of roasted hog prepared by Smokin Chicks Barbeque.
Following that was a bagpipe serenade.
Right before heading to the course, the golfers were treated to the singing of the National Anthem by CGF Golf in Schools instructors Laura Kraft and Gary Mills. The CGF crew has many talents, and they were spectacular!
Following the round and the awards ceremony, the participants were shuttled to the Roots and Blues Festival.
Thank you to all who participated. Proceeds go to fund the Columbia Golf Foundation Golf in Schools Program, which provides golf demonstration and instruction in PE programs K-8 in a 10-city area in Mid-Missouri. The communities CGF serves are: Auxvasse, Boonville, Centralia, Hallsville, Harrisburg, Hatton, Mexico, Moberly, Sturgeon, and Williamsburg.
At the 2016 Hall of Fame Banquet the Tri-Hogs presented a REALLY BIG check to Columbia Golf Foundation.

“As he approached the 18th tee of the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am”s Celebrity Challenge on Feb. 5, Lucas Black was starting to worry. The Columbia-based actor figured his team was the class of the field, but with only one hole left in the charity event, he had yet to win anything.
Then Black looked at his playing partner, actor Andy Garcia, who did not share his concerns…
