The Tri-Hogs present a big check to Columbia Golf Foundation to help fund Golf in Schools. The group, dedicated to growing the game of golf, raised the funds through an invitational tournament at Columbia Country Club.
Our 2017 tour will take place in April and May, and CGF hopes to see your kids there!
The Columbia Golf Foundation Youth Golf Camp is an annual camp designed to teach youth the fundamentals of the game and life skills of respect honesty, social responsibility and perseverance.
During 10 sessions in June, the LPGA and CGF will host a girls camp. Each session will feature emphasis on different aspects of the game, which will be taught by local pros, high school team members and coaches.
A finalized schedule should be available after March 1, 2017 at columbiagolffoundation.org
The Lucas Black Golf In Schools Program brings the game of golf to PE programs at local elementary and middle schools in the Mid-Missouri area by providing youth oriented golf equipment and training opportunities to a number of schools in our area.
Lucas Black has been a major contributor to this program and has donated over $20,000 in tournament winnings to support CGF and the “Golf In Schools” Program.
In 2017 “Golf In Schools” will travel to Moberly, Boonville, Hatton, Auxvasse, Sturgeon, Williamsburg, Mexico and Harrisburg introducing golf to students from first grade through middle school.
