The 2022 CAGGY Award Winners: Instruction

Thank you for participating in our 20th annual salute to the Best of Colorado Golf! 

As golf enjoys a resurgence in popularity, Colorado AvidGolfer (CAG) takes great pride in participating in your enjoyment of the game. In that spirit, we annually present our annual CAGGY Awards, which honor the best Colorado courses, clubs and instructors—as voted online by more than 5,000 of you, our readers. Some courses and instructors evidently mounted better campaigns than others did; such is the democratic process. So, as always, our staff shared its selections. Thanks for voting and enjoy!
