Columbia Golf Open 2017


Columbia Golf Open 2017

The Columbia Open is back!!!

For each of the past three years, alumni and friends from Ivy League and other acclaimed universities joined together at the Columbia Open for a day of competition and fun.   Battles were fought, friendships were forged, and school honors upheld—along with plenty of laughers and friendly trash talks 

We are pleased to invite you to join our 3rd annual Columbia Open golf tournament. 

Whether you are an individual golf player, or a member of an alumni golf team, this will be a great opportunity to connect with golf players from other schools!

We look forward to seeing you at the event!

(2)  Register as an Individual Player:  You may register as an individual player.  However, in the spirit of fun, we will group you with a school team so you may participate in the team competition as well.

Individual Competition:

  1. Champion: Lowest gross score.  (In the event of a tie, the first tiebreaker goes to the player with the lowest score on the 18th hole, the second tiebreaker goes to the player with the lowest score on the 17th hole, and so forth.  In the event that the scores are the same for all 18 holes, the champion goes to the eldest player.)
  2. Runner-up: Second lowest gross score.
  3. Lowest Net Sore: Calculated based on the New-New Peoria system. Maximum 5/7/9 strokes on par 3/4/5 to calculate the handicap.
