Golf in Denver looks at the people, places, and events involved in the grand game in the Denver area for more than a century. The photographs in this volume chronicle the sport in Denver beginning in 1896, when it was played nearly exclusively by a handful of socially prominent, wealthy Denverites, to today's popular sport played on dozens of courses dotting the metro area. Casual and avid golfers as well as history buffs will appreciate the stories behind the game, including an in-depth look at how local courses were established, tales of well-known people, and accounts of women and minorities involved in local golf.
