Colorado Golf Hall of Fame induction/awards dinner and tournament pushed back to 2021
By Gary Baines – 7/13/2020
The Colorado Golf Hall of Fame’s 48th induction and awards dinner, along with its separately-held tournament — which had both been postponed from dates in the spring to later this year — now will no longer be conducted in 2020 due to Covid-19-related concerns.
The plan is for the original site for the dinner and tournament this year, Colorado Golf Club in Parker, to remain the host for both events in 2020, with dates to be determined. CGC has hosted a Senior PGA Championship, a Solheim Cup and a U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship over the course of the last 11 years.
Russ Miller, the longtime director of golf at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, was voted into the Hall of Fame in October and will now be formally inducted in 2021. Also being honored will be Mary Weinstein of Highlands Ranch (2019 Golf Person of the Year), longtime “In the Fairway” radio host Jerry Walters (Distinguished Service), Eleanore Pellegrini (Lifetime Achievement), and Charlotte Hillary of Cherry Hills Village and Micah Stangebye of Montrose (Future Famers).

Another induction class and group of honorees are expected to.be voted upon in the fall.
The Colorado Golf Hall of Fame inducted its first class in 1973, with the honorees being Babe Zaharias, Dave Hill and Babe Lind.
