You voted, we counted and these are this year’s winners.
2018 arrived December 1. That would be chronologically implausible but electorally accurate, as 2,018 individuals cast their votes for our annual CAGGY Awards, celebrating the best in Colorado golf. Polls closed December 1.
As we did in 2013, this year we put the vote in your hands. Our voting took place online and began August 1. Participants could complete only one survey per IP address; they also had to vote for a minimum of 20 categories for the survey to count. That’s a total of at least 40,360 votes.
Democracy, of course, isn’t perfect, and sometimes the election goes to the best campaign, not to the best candidate. But overall, we believe the results reflect well on you, the Colorado golfer.
To complement your selections, we made “Staff Picks” for each category. These are listed alphabetically, not ranked numerically. After all, asking me, or any CAG staff member, “What’s your favorite course?” is akin to asking, “Which of your children is your favorite?” You shouldn’t have such conflicts.
I’m sure some will take issue with the selections. If that’s the case, make your voice heard and let us know! Better still, tell your home course to get out the vote next year, and make sure you and your golf buddies to do the same.
Given the subject matter, that would certainly qualify as a grassroots movement, although I wouldn’t go so far as to call it a Tee Party
Here are this year’s CAGGY winners…..
