Greetings--Welcome to the Columbia City High School Alumni Association website.  As your president I look forward to sustaining what we have built and  to expanding our horizons as an organization.

As of July 1, 2024 the alumni database is temporarily down but we are working on the problem.  It happened as a result of a server upgrade, and fixing the problem is taking longer than anticipated.  When the alumni database is working again, this notice will be removed.

The one & only CCHS Alumni Association website:  Ad-free, run by CCHS alumni volunteers and free for all alumni, faculty, staff and friends of our school.  This official website can always be reached by using the link in the upper right corner of the CCHS website's home page.  Don't be fooled by email invitations from commercial sites -- web addresses ending in .com are commercial.

The event is more about fun, sportsmanship, and fundraising to benefit current CCHS students and the community than about superior golf skills or winning the golf tournament.  It is open to all who love the game, not just CCHS alumni.
