NEW HAVEN, Conn.—Fresh of its Princeton Invitational team championship, the Columbia women’s golf team travels to The Course at Yale to compete in this weekend’s Yale Women’s Intercollegiate from Friday through Sunday. The Lions will compete in the three-day, 54-hole event with 18 holes on Friday, 18 holes on Saturday and 18 holes on Sunday.
Along with Columbia, Boston College, Boston U, Brown, Cincinnati, Dartmouth, Fairleigh Dickinson, Harvard, Penn, Princeton, Seton Hall, South Alabama, South Florida, Stirling, Towson, Tulsa, Xavier and Yale will compete at the event this weekend.
Competition begins on Friday morning with tee times on hole 1 at 8 a.m. Columbia will tee off at 10:30 a.m. Saturday tee times begin at 8 a.m. on hole 1. On Sunday, the teams will have a shotgun start at 9:30 a.m. The Lions will be in New Haven on Thursday for a practice round. The Course at Yale is a par 70 golf course covering 6,749 yards.
Columbia is back in action coming off a team championship in the Princeton Invitational last weekend and a second place finish at the Nittany Lion Invitational in its first competition of the fall. At Princeton, the Lions used three top-10 individual performances from Vik, Chulya and Dilawari and a course low 298 stroke performance in the final 18 holes to capture the team title. It was Columbia’s first team title since it won the River Landing Classic in Wallace, N.C. on April 11-12, 2015.
The weekend’s event marks the third of four fall tournaments that the Lions will compete in. Columbia will compete in the Cardinal Cup at the University of Louisville (Oct. 23-25).
