The State of Play

August 2016 Games of Golf, Colorado AvidGolfer

When Green Valley Ranch Golf Club welcomes the 22nd CoBank Colorado Women’s Open August 31-September 2, players from across the country (Hawaii, Florida, Texas, North Carolina) and the world (Australia, New Zealand) will fill the field. Surprising? Not at all. The event has always drawn a geographically diverse field. Compared to the 52-year-old CoBank Colorado Open, where Coloradans have won more than half the time, in the 21 years of the Women’s Open, only five winners have listed Colorado as their home state. That’s less than 24 percent—and only one Colorado golfer, Denver’s Becca Huffer in 2013, has claimed the title during this century.
