West Chapter

West Chapter

The West Chapter of the Colorado PGA encompasses those members and associates that work west of the Continental Divide in the state of Colorado. The West Chapter is made up of approximately 100 Members and Associates with over 50 facilities being located in the Chapter.

The West Chapter is governed by Officers elected by the Chapter Membership. The Core Purpose of the Chapter is to deliver the member programs and services of the Colorado PGA on the Western Slope. The West Chapter provides continuing education, pro-only and pro-am tournaments.

The West Chapter Annually recognizes award winners and Players of the Year. The nomination process for the Awards opens at the West Chapter Fall Membership Meeting and Championship and closes the middle of December. Nominees are then given the opportunity to submit their awards packet before the West Chapter Board selects the winners in each category. The winners are recognized at the Colorado PGA Spring Business Meeting and receive their awards at the West Chapter Spring Business Meeting.
