NEW YORK - The Columbia men's golf team used the opening weekend of the 2012-13 season to participate in a pair of community service activities.

On Saturday, Sept. 8 the Lions hosted Army for a dual event at the Tuxedo Club in a Patriot Golf Day event. Patriot Golf Day is the flagship fundraiser for the Folds of Honor Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides educational scholarships for the children and spouses of military men and women disabled or killed while serving our great nation.

Columbia's men's golf team made a $70 donation to the Fold of Honor Foundation.

On Sunday, the team held a clinic for children of the City Park Junior Golf program. Following the clinic, the entire team played nine holes with the kids.

Columbia will be back on the golf course this weekend in Farmingdale, N.Y. to compete in The McLaughlin at Bethpage Red.
