Colorado Senior Golfers' Association

CSGA History

The inspiration for the organization of the Association came from Mr. Charles C. Bagnall, a very good golfer, who realized that after one has passed the age of fifty-five, the zest for intensive competition has begun to wane. Golf has become a game of pleasure - no longer for glory. So he set out to see if there were others who felt the same way, and if something could be done about it.

To a group of men who had been identified with golf since its introduction in Denver, he suggested the formation of a senior golf organization. The idea was to limit membership to men who had reached the age of fifty-five years, so that tournaments could be held in which all contestants would be in the same age class, and bring together in a friendly competition all golfers of senior age, just for fun.
