Columbia, Mo. – The Columbia College men’s and women’s golf teams took part in the Millcreek Elementary Golf Day hosted by A.L Gustin Golf Course and was co-sponsored by the Columbia Golf Foundation under the direction of Millcreek Elementary Assistant Principal Mark Burlison and CGF Director John Weston.
Head golf Coach John Utley along with golfers Hunter Parrish, Colbey Schuster, Caleb Abalos and Claire McDonald participated in the event where they assisted by giving golf instruction to approximately 140 second graders throughout the day. In addition to full swing instruction, the players helped with golf course maintenance, explained by A.L. Gustin Superintendent Isaac Breuer, putting, rules and scoring.
