The Columbus State men's golf team will resume the 2015-16 season hoping to continue the hot start from the fall.

The 22nd-ranked Cougars played in four events in the fall, winning the Aflac/Cougar Invitational and finishing third in the UIS Island Getaway in Puerto Rico.

Each of the four spring events are ones that CSU is familiar with, having played last year.

CSU will start at the Matlock Collegiate Classic on Feb. 8-9 at the Lone Palm Golf Club in Lakeland, Fla. CSU finished 10th last season.

CSU won't play again for over a month, returning on Match 13-15 for the Southeastern Collegiate at Kinderlou in Valdosta, Ga.

The Cougars play again the following week on March 21-22 at the Bobcat Invitational at the Golf Club at Cuscowilla, which is on Lake Oconee at Eatonton, Ga.

CSU will play for a third straight week, on March 28-29, at the Bearcat Classic at the Greenwood Country Club in Greenwood, S.C.

The Peach Belt Conference championship will be hosted by Flagler on April 15-17 at World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Fla.
